How does it feel to be desired by every man and envied by every woman? Wonderful. This is the life Nora Sinclair has dreamed about, the life she’s worked hard for, the life she will never give up. She doesn’t just attract men, she enthralls them. So why is FBI agent John O’Hara interested in Nora Sinclair? Mysterious things happen to people around her, especially the men. And there is something dangerous about Nora, something that lures O’Hara at the same time that it fills him with fear.
Is something dark hidden in the gaps of her past? As O’Hara spends more and more time getting to know her, is he pursuing justice? Or his own fatal obsession?
James Patterson’s Honeymoon tells the story of the stunning and deadly Nora Sinclair, pitting her wits and games against those of FBI Agent John O’Hara.
Filled with intrigue and sly humor, Honeymoon is an engaging read. The back cover synopsis details the plot; however, Patterson approaches the story as if the reader were going in blind and writes in such a way as to keep the reader deliberately in the dark rather than letting discovery unfold naturally. Even so, the tale is fast-paced, and the suspense keeps the reader turning the pages. Several subplots unfold over the course of the book to keep the reader guessing, but not all are resolved satisfactorily.
Patterson’s Honeymoon is a quick, enjoyable thriller, as long as the reader is willing to let the author play at pulling the wool over their eyes. While the mystery is not especially intellectual, Patterson knows how to write a riveting page-turner.
