‘The story moves like lightning.’
Cosmopolitan

From the Back Cover

FIRST, THERE WAS THE NO 1 BESTSELLING, PAGE-TURNING 'ALONG CAME A SPIDER'. NEXT, THE ELECTRIFYING NO 1 BESTSELLER 'KISS THE GIRLS'. NOW, THE BREATHTAKING NEW NOVEL OF TERROR AND SUSPENSE WHICH PROVES, ONCE AGAIN, THAT NO ONE MAKES THE PAGES TURN FASTER THAN JAMES PATTERSON.

Maggie Bradford is on trial for murder – in the celebrity trial of the decade. As one of the world's best-loved singer-songwriters, she seems to have it all. So how could she have murdered not just one, but two of her husbands?

Will Shepherd was Maggie's second husband. A magnificent athlete and film star, he was just as famous. But Will had dark, dangerous secrets that none of his fans could have imagined… that his own wife could never have dreamed of.

Format: Paperback
This novel has definite good points, but also some bad and slightly predictable ones that made me skim read parts.
The lead character Maggie is quite a typical 'naïve' woman who stumbles from one unsuitable relationship to the next, seemingly blinded by what is going on under her nose. Her supposed talent for singing and playing the piano is tiresome - she apparently reaches so many people that the whole population suck up to her every time they see her because her lyrics are so 'deep'. Mmmn.
The redeeming feature is the baddy of the book - Will - who is a great character, glib, smart, and utterly evil, he is a time bomb waiting to go off. As for the ending - it was good and quite thought provoking - however it did seem quite unlikely and wasn't explained too well.
I'd definitely suggest you read this for entertainment value, it's a good book by normal standards but not up to Pattersons other works.

I thought that this book was fantastic. It's escapr from realism into the perfect world that is so common in books and films (and yes, far fetched from reality).
This book helped to show that even what appears to be perfect on the surface is not so deep down.
A top sports person, good looking and rich the type so many women dream about turns out to be the devil incarnate. In my view it is well worth a read.

Love James Patterson and he has written some great crime novels-along came a spider and kiss the girls are fantastic examples of a good crime thriller however Hide and seek is a loada of old rubbish!
By the end I wondered if it was joke and someone else had written it as I cant believe Patterson could make such basic mistakes such as forgetting that forensic science exists! the killer fakes his own death and uses someone elses body- the police don't even seem to perform any tests to ensure its actually him and then convict Maggie of his murder.!!! He does the same thing earlier in the book too-Maggies second husband dies of a heart attack and later she is suspected of killing him-wouldn't an autopsy have been performed to check her story at the time?!

My other major grip with Patterson is his annoying habit of depicting family relationships in a really nauseating tweet way. The character Maggie has the capacity to touch everyone with her fantastic heart felt music and reduces evil psycho killesr to tears with her lyrics...as if!

However the bo0ok isn't without redeaming features-the main bad guy is well written-u just love to hate him and can even sympathise at times with him. The plot moves on quickly and book is like riding a rollercoaster however for me ultimately I felt like Patterson was being lazy when he wrote this book and neglected credibility for a good story

This book is quite possibly one of the worst books I have ever read - or half read to be exact. Not because of a poor storyline but because there is no depth to the characters and the storyline is so implaussible. The two charaters, whose names I can't remember, nearly win the world cup for America (The miraculous transformation in form takes up two pages)and write more chart topping songs than Lennon and McCartney and thats in the first eighty pages.
As the author, who I had only heard good things about, tries to keep the pace high, detail and realsim are sacrificed. It's a shame really because I was looking forward to reading this novel.

I am a big fan of James Patterson's books, however was very disappointed with this book. It had a weak lead character Maggie and the whole story is predictable and nothing new. Did struggle to read it through to the end. Maggie comes across as very naïve and too trusting and all in all the story is nothing special. All in all would definitely not recommend it.

I've really enjoyed Patterson in the past. This book however left me cold. The story line is shallow and the narative just doesn't build the characters. Will (the male lead) from his roots in USA...is sent to England...plays 1st Division football and scores twice for the USA in a World Cup Final against Brazil (in Rio) all within a few chapters. It seems patterson had other things to occupy him when writting this....I only hope he was concentrating on his next novel...which I am about to read. Oh...and Patterson likes to repeat himself...time and time again...either he forgot what he wrote 2 pages earlier or he thought we might forget!!
