Publisher's Summary

This explosive standalone thriller from the world's number-one best-selling author follows ex-Secret Service agent Cain Lemaire as he uncovers dark secrets hidden beneath the Tokyo streets.

The Bayou is a unique place to live and it provides a grit and passion to any who hail from it, including Cain Lemaire, an ex-Secret Service agent from New Orleans. Cain had the dream job he had always wanted, protecting the President, until a single night resulted in a scandal that lost him his post. 

Needing a new direction for his life and with help from his sister who works in Japan, Cain takes a job in Tokyo as head of security detail for a very successful and important CEO. What he thought was a simple security post unravels a tangled web of corruption, greed, and extortion, but now Cain is on his own and without the wealth of resources he had with the Secret Service. Years of training and international missions kick in as he races to find justice that only way a born and raised Cajun can do.

Arrogant and racist

If you believe that white Americans are the master race, then this book is for you. The main characters’ mother is hardly mentioned when he goes home. Although his twin sister was brought up (like him) learning how to fly, she works as an airline hostess. I should have returned this book and was not worth the time or credit.

Highly Improbable

Even though this book is better than Patterson’s recent output of quantity over quality short stories, the patchwork plot of this book has left little time to truly develop the characters. Placing the novel in the beautiful nation and culture of Japan is most noteworthy and is, in my opinion, what placed this novel from completely mediocre to intriguing.
If the plot was given a true chance to be developed it would gave been much better than the hit and run short story that in my opinion sadly is.
After reading this I was left with an empty feeling, as if I’d just awaken from an nightmare that had never happened.

Cajun? Maybe

The storyline shot off in a completely different direction than anticipated. While entertaining, it was really hard to listen to the Cajun accent butchered. Some words were down right comical.

Different feel for a Patterson story

This book had a different tone from anything of his that I have read. It was engaging and a good story though. Well worth the read, or listen, if you consume books like I do these days.

poor narration

Unless I'm wrong and people from Louisianna really do talk like Elmer Fudd I found it took away from an average story.

Great Listen

The storyline was a bit slow at first, although a background needed for the rest of the book. It picked up and it is a great read/listen. Draws you in.

Not believable and formulaic

This was a disappointment from about the first half hour in. I had hoped for it to get better, but it kept getting less and less believable.
Certainly one of the worst books this author has appended his name to.
