    1. Working alongside Andrew Bourelle, James Patterson assists in crafting another of his popular BookShots that keep the drama coming as the chapters flow freely. Logan Bishop has a lot in his past he would rather forget. A thief living a life constantly on the edge, he chooses to opt out after a significantly profitable diamond heist. Scamming his partner, Logan goes off the radar in the remote community of Lake Tahoe. While out one day, he encounters Hannah, a perky woman he recognises from the g [...]

    5. Another good quick read from James Patterson in the Bookshots format - not part of any of his existing series though.This one features an ex-con who is now living near Lake Tahoe (the descriptions make this sound quite an idyllic location), living off the proceeds of a diamond robbery, but constantly looking over his shoulder - his ex-partner tried to kill him and take all the loot when he told him that that was his last job.He instinctively saves the life of a drowning girl, causing him to beco [...]

    6. Have you read one of the Book Shots yet? They are fun novellas. Not a short story and not quite a novel. If you listen to them you can finish one in 3 hours.The Pretender takes place in and around lake Tahoe, Ca.A young man on the "lamb" from the police and his former pals in LA helps a young girl who is drowning in the lake and ends up on the front page of the newspaper and on a viral video clip. What happens next well you will have to listen/read for yourselves!

    7. This is one of Patterson's Bookshots. Takes a couple hours or so to read. Some call them Novella's--a short full story that are short good reads. Don't want to spoil the story as there is a lot of content in a short amount of time. Diamonds, diamond's hidden, person tracking robber, romance involved. People shot, etc. etc. etc. Enjoy!!!

    8. This book is full of pretenders who are not who they appear to be at all.Everyone has secrets but these characters all are trying to hide something.In the end, they either learn to live with their secrets,get killed for their secrets or are still trying to figure out how to survive once their secret is let known.

    18. I'm not a fan of short stories, even if they have Patterson's name on them.

    21. Nice twist in the endBut I really wanted to know what happened to Logan & Hannah

    22. Bookshots novella. A thief is laying low in Lake Tahoe. He is living off the proceeds of his last heist and trying to stay away from his last partner. Liked the setting, but other then his good looks not sure why the love interest would be interested in him. This is a quick adventure, clean Patterson collaboration.

    23. I found this to be one of the better Bookshots I've read. They are short, easy reads more like novellas than novels. The characters in this one are stand alone not ones from some of Patterson's continuing series.Good storytelling.
