Sarah Broadhurst's view...

In short, fast, cliff-hanging chapters this first-time author seems to be a copycat James Patterson, which is hardly surprising since he has been Patterson’s co-writer on several books (Lifeguard, Judge and Jury). This is his first solo novel and it’s terrific. I liked the characters, the plot, the pace, the tension, the duplicity, the detection, the deception, the whole thing. Read it and see.

Similar this month: None but try Mark Billingham.
Comparison: James Patterson, Dennis Lehane, Tami Hoag.

If you like Andrew Gross you might also like to read books by Tami Hoag, Harlan Coben and Robert Crais.

Synopsis

The Blue Zone by Andrew Gross

They were the perfect family. And he was the perfect family man. One day changed it all.

Arrested for racketeering, Ben Raab must take his family into America’s Witness Protection Programme. Only his eldest daughter, Kate, chooses to stay on the outside.

But the Programme's perfect success rate is about to come to a shocking end. A case agent is tortured to death and Ben vanishes. The one person who might be able to find him is Kate.

Pursued by killers, forced to question everything she knows about her life so far, Kate is plunged into a terrifying existence for which nothing has prepared her.

Most people would call it certain death.

The FBI calls it the Blue Zone.

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Ann Quintilla

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
