Within this crowd also stands his girlfriend, Katherine, one of his lecturers at Parsons. If only she knew — would she still be smiling? Chukov is a Russian Heavy Man in charge of returning the diamonds to their rightful owner and responsible for hiring the Ghost. When the diamonds go missing, the Ghost is reinstated to find the idiot that would steal from the Mob. Never fazed by a challenge the Ghost readily accepts and sets to work. Alongside him, Chokov enlists the help of two bent police officers, Rice and Benzetti, and later adds a blonde German bombshell named Krall to the ever-growing list.
How difficult can it be to find this guy?
Rice and Benzetti set to work revisiting CCTV from the evening of the robbery and they are soon able to identity Brannon as their man. Cocky and unruly, they believe that very little will stand in their way and soon they will be reaping the rewards from both Chokov and from skimming the diamond bag. The Ghost however, seems to have disappeared. Controlling Chokov, Nathaniel, his boss and cousin, is desperate and needs the diamonds to be recovered at all costs. He trusted Chokov to have the situation under control which he now realises was not so clever. His girlfriend, Natalia, is also concerned about the consequences knowing that they will be the ones under fire from above if the precious stones are not found.
Knowing that Zelvas has been skimming from the Diamond Syndicate Nathaniel is already in trouble but how bad is it going to get for him? Brannon, knowing that he is under threat sensibly decides to disappear and plans a romantic holiday for him and Katherine to Paris, and then Venice. It quickly transpires though that he is no good at covering his tracks when Krall forces her way into their lovely room. Timing is clearly another trait that Brannon struggles with as this is also the moment he chooses to reveal his gem collection to Katherine. With his military training, although taken by surprise, he does manage to outwit Krall, throwing her out of the window and into the canal below.
Now on the run not only from the Mob but also the Italian police Katherine and Matthew scope up as many diamonds as possible and head out of the door before they are missed. Already struggling with one revelation Katherine is then faced with another; will she be able to accept this one as easily as the last? At this point it would appear not and she heads back to New York leaving Brannon behind. Left with the prospect of being on his own Brannon heads to Amsterdam in the hope that someone will buy his diamonds after which he is determined to then try and resolve things with Katherine.
Although this seems like a simple plan surely there is going to be a catch — nothing so far has run smoothly why should things change now? Being chased by hired killers, Russian mobsters and dirty cops what chance does Brannon have? Will things end happily ever after for Brannon and Katherine?
Will Chakov and Nathaniel reclaim their diamonds? Which hired killer will win? How many will die?
Kill Me If You Can has ratings and reviews. Cameron said: This book has made me reconsider a lot of things in my prog40.ru of all, it has. Hold on to your seats, this story will blow you away. Kill me if you can is a docu- drama, which follows two boys (John and Mark), addicted to an Internet.
I guarantee, even after reading this review, you will not be able to guess the turns that this storyline will take. Just when you think you have everything figured out another bomb is dropped and you have to start thinking again. A quick, non-challenging read this novel is enjoyable for anyone that likes Crime Fiction. Highly recommend this story as it is one of the best of Patterson's library.
Don't miss out on this one. One person found this helpful. Library Binding Verified Purchase. That is if you focus on the main aspect of the novel that being man kills bad guy who has millions of dollars of dimonds with him. The killer of the man takes the dimonds and figures out a way to made money off the sale of the dimonds while trying not to die from the other bad guys hunting him down. This Patterson novel had two subplots and so many people tend to focus on the bad aspects of Patterson's writing skills or path of the novels he writes.
Yes the novels he writes can have some very ugly material inside the novels as seen in this book. But if you read his novels for the reason like I do for the action scenes and main plotline not subplots then you will enjoy this novel as much as I did and don't focus on the two subplots.
Audio CD Verified Purchase. A diamond book if there ever was one. The person reading this book provides the perfect image of the main character. My rating missed 5 stars for the same reason as most: But then, the almighty dollar trumps exceptional quality yet one more time Just enough suspense to make it exciting but not a lot of gore. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. I'm not all that impressed with this one, especially in the beginning. It gets better though and then sort of fizzles out again. I like his old books better, before adding the also-rans.
Maybe the well is tapped out? I don't know - but I used to keep all of his books to re-read and now sometimes I not only don't save them for later, I sometimes don't even finish them About halfway through, Patterson and Karp drop a bombshell that will have you reading or at least skimming what has gone before once or twice.
You will be shell-shocked for at least the next hundred pages, but it changes the entire mood of the novel and sets up at least the possibility of a continuing series. This fabulous thriller is full of action and occasional humor, and just enough sex to make the heat rise when the book is closed.
You will not be sorry. I have been an avid long time Patterson fan and have read all of his adult books. I've always looked forward to the next release and recommended most of the books to family and friends. I am sad to say I am no longer a fan. I want my money back!
I couldn't force myself to finish this book. I felt like I was reading a rated X book. Why does Patterson suddenly feel the need to make it seem so desirable to fall in love with your father? It was so graphic that I felt I had to delete it from my kindle because I felt dirty! The bad guys were shallow, the good guys felt forced. It wandered around with no sense of reality.
It was just so bad that it seemed like a first writing of an author with a smutty mind. Shame on you Jim! I will no longer let my daughter read your teen novels as well.
A Frighteningly Realistic Aviation Thriller. Aug 20, Nining Sriningsih rated it it was amazing. Why so disquieted within me? Nahh, dalam loker di stasiun ini ditemukanlah tas dokter yg ternyata isinya penuh dgn berlian!!! There will be more.
It appears the reason prople are trashing the book is because a behind the scenes bad guy is in an incestual relationship with his daughter. While Taboo and wrong its a fictional book for goodness sakes and and if these tee toddleing, judgmental perfect people would realize its a story and a pretty exciting one at that who cares if a certain character is involved in a incestual relationship rather than abusing, mauling,torturing, maiming or killing some character in an awful manner.
Give me a break. Its a good reaad, enjoy it! See all reviews.
