Dr. Dylan Reinhart wrote the book on criminal behavior. Literally--he's a renowned, Ivy League expert on the subject. When a copy of his book turns up at a gruesome murder scene--along with a threatening message from the killer--it looks like someone has been taking notes. Elizabeth Needham is the headstrong and brilliant NYPD Detective in charge of the case who recruits Dylan to help investigate another souvenir left at the scene--a playing card. Another murder, another card--and now Dylan suspects that the cards aren't a signature, they're a deadly hint--pointing directly toward the next victim. As tabloid headlines about the killer known as "The Dealer" scream from newstands, New York City descends into panic. With the cops at a loss, it's up to Dylan to hunt down a serial killer unlike any the city has ever seen. Only someone with Dylan's expertise can hope to go inside the mind of a criminal and convince The Dealer to lay down his cards. But after thinking like a criminal--could Dylan become one?

Not one of Patterson's best. Not sure if Roughan created the plot and characters.

Another surprising character from JP. Like others, I wasn't sure if I liked it near the beginning, but it turned quickly into a fast paced thriller, with really likeable characters. I hope JP keeps this character going in future books-he's the bomb!. Great read and "can't put it down" thrill ride.

I read the 1st chapter and though "Uh oh, don't know if I want to read this one." Then in typical Patterson (and Roughan) fashion, by the end of the 3rd chapter I was hooked again. Very interesting characters, character development and super story line. I was fooled at the beginning and fooled again at the end - and you may be as well. Or not. Read it an enjoy the ride! There was a 1-line hint dropped near the end that suggests we may see this main character(s) again. That would be fun too!

This book has a new character that I feel will be back in action again. Quick read as usual for Patterson with lots of twists an turns. Still hitting the marks with his books.
