This spine-chilling thriller is fast paced and intense. James Patterson’s penchant for short chapters adds to the jittery energy of the text, keeping the reader on tenterhooks, hooking us from page one until the shocking conclusion.

Synopsis

The perfect life
A successful lawyer and loving mother, Nina Bloom would do anything to protect the life she's built in New York--including lying to everyone, even her daughter, about her past. But when an innocent man is framed for murder, she knows that she can't let him pay for the real killer's crimes.

The perfect lie
Nina's secret life began 18 years ago. She had looks to die for, a handsome police-officer husband, and a carefree life in Key West. When she learned she was pregnant with their first child, her happiness was almost overwhelming. But Nina's world is shattered when she unearths a terrible secret that causes her to run for her life and change her identity.

The perfect way to die
Now, years later, Nina risks everything she's earned to return to Florida and confront the murderous evil she fled. In a story of wrenching suspense, James Patterson gives us his most head-spinning, action-filled story yet--a Hitchcock-like blend of unquenchable drama and pleasure.

Filled with action and mystery, the story has a Hitchcockian feel to it. It's a good summer read.

Now You See Her is the kind of high-velocity thriller that makes reading an aerobic activity. It’s well-plotted, suspenseful novels like this one that have made Patterson a regular on bestseller lists—and in beach bags.

Set mostly in Key West, Now You See Her is perfect beach reading but readers will be sucked into the story even when it's twenty below outside.
