Publisher's Summary

The wealthiest zip code in Florida doesn't just have billionaires, yachts, and private planes - it also has the best murder plots money can buy. 

The Palm Beach Murders (previously published as Let's Play Make-Believe): Both survivors of the divorce wars, Christy and Martin don't believe in love at first sight and certainly not on a first date. But from the instant they lock eyes, life becomes a sexy, romantic dream come true. That is until they start playing a strangely intense game of make-believe - a game that's about to go too far. (with James O. Born)

Stingrays: When a teenager goes missing on a Caribbean beach, the local police are baffled. It's up to the Stingrays, a world-class team that solves the unsolvable, to unearth the truth: a truth that no one will believe. (with Duane Swierczynski)

Nooners: Everyone who knows Tim says he's a good guy. But the popular advertising exec has a problem: A lot of the people who know him are getting murdered. And by the time he figures out why, Tim won't feel so good anymore. (with Tim Arnold)

Mixed opinions

I feel the third story wasn't up to a normal JP standard unfortunately. The other 2 were ok

So dissatisfied

I never write a bad review - but this book is Not worth one of my credits. The narrating is so bad, I had to turn it off. I will look more closely at any book written by James Patterson before I buy another. Crass commercialism.

Hard to believe this came from Patterson

I bought this title because I like the author's other books. This one was so disappointing for me. If you like stories of gullible women falling for psychopathic men, you'll probably love it. Perhaps the story develops over time but it lost me after the first few chapters, too predictable.

Over my head.

Disappointing combination. Couldn’t keep up with characters and story lines. Definitely not the James Patterson, I remember.

Pretty bad

I LOVE James Patterson books, but I find it hard to believe he wrote this. The 3 short stories are okay, but overly predictable in the “twist”.

The voice of the narrators go from okay to awful. The whiney guy in number 2 is bad. Outdone only by the awful annunciation of “Pauolo” by the third narrator.

PLEASE go back to writing your own books, or just stop putting your name on other people’s junk.

Awesome !!

All 3 books were "close" to perfection.
stingrays was a great story but the Stingrays are voiced by the same person!!! it's sooooo confusing at times.
I think there should be Male and Female readers like Baldacci does.
