These stories were poor from the first page. If Patterson himself would have written them, I would have been very disappointed. However, it's my understanding that Patterson comes up with the concept, maybe even the outline, and the guest authors do the rest. Whose name goes on the cover? Only Patterson, because his name sells. Very disappointed.

The 3 mysteries in this book were all what I considered good reads. I enjoyed each one, especially since each mystery did not contain the unnecessary foul language that Patterson's novels usually do.

3 Book in one they are fast reads but not much depth in each story. Prefer full length books.

I don't always read James Patterson thrillers. My husband told me he recommended this one and I'm so glad he did.

A combo of 3 "novellas," each about 150 pages, and written by Patterson with three different authors. I'm hoping Patterson collaborates with them again.

Each of the three stories was good, but my husband told me that they progressively get better and he, again, was correct. Trust that each of the stories is a "page turner" and you'll want to keep reading. A really good light summer read. Highly recommended.

There was murder,not so much paradise. 3 mini books in one. The 1st 2 didn't even seem like Patterson. The second story that had an ending that made me feel I wasted my time...that will never be a movie! Not his best work.

Short, fast-paced stories that hold your attention and make you not want to put down the book.
