   3 great stories
All three stories in this book are a great read and worth buying if they were the only story in the book. Fun to read with all of Patterson's usual twists.
   Surprise, surprises
For more than 20 years, I' ve been reading James Patterson's books. You never know how things will turn out. There will be at least one more Alex Cross with a character like Gary Songji who could get away. When it comes to the end of the short stories, you' re drawn in so completely that you' re still interested in reading more. You won't put it down, it's a really good book.
   Save Your Money
First of all, I am a big fan of James Patterson. I will buy a book of his and read almost anything he writes. Today. I wish I hadn't bought this book. The story lines of the 3 stories were not good. It was like he was trying to get a book out. The cover doesn't tell the whole truth. I thought I was buying something new. I got 3 stories in one book and each one was worse than the last. I was almost speechless by the second one. When I got to the last page, I had a hard time believing that James was the author. What a disappointment. It pains me to write a negative review of JP, but it is not a book I would recommend to anyone. There are better choices.
   Do not waste your money on this one!
I' ve read every single one of his books and I love him. This was horrible. He published the first and third stories in Bookshots. The second one was terrible. It sounded like the writer didn't know how to end the story, so he just killed off everyone. It is unethical to make the readers think that this is a new edition. He is too good to be doing that. I know he gives a lot of money to literacy programs, but it's not an excuse for stiffing his loyal readers! I am very disappointed.
   James Patterson?
I'm always looking for new releases from James Patterson, I must have read most of his books, and I love his writing, but some are not what I expected. I started buying the book- shots and like them a first but lately when I see his name on the cover with another writer I stay away from the book. I read 3 stories in 1 hour and kept looking for a good part in the book. I could not find it. I have to give a star to this book so I can submit my review, but it doesn't deserve it.
   Murder In Paradise
I like all of James' books. This one wasn't good. I'm not sure what happened here. It is easy to read. Someone else's story did not end when this one jumped from one story to another. I didn't have the power to finish it.
   OTwo out of the tree stories I had bought in ...
Out of the tree stories I bought in Book Shoorts, there were two that did not show up in the preview of the book.
   1st story has been printed before. 2nd story should never been written, printed or sold. What happened to editors & publisher
I gave this book a 1- star because I couldn't give it 0- star. The 1 st story was printed before the front cover advertisement. There is a place on the top shelf of the Nazi 3 rd Reich library for the 2 nd story. The story should not have been printed. Shame on Jame and Conner. Their goal seems to be to make money out of sick culture. The 3 rd story was not great but acceptable.
   Don't waste your money
One story that I have already read as a Bookshot, one story with a poor ending, and one story that was mediocre at best. I feel like Mr. Patterson is being generous. I guess it's all about quantity.
MisINFORMATION. I bought it because the cover said in print for the first time. The Lawyer Lifeguard was ok, The Doctor's Plot was ok but ended in ridiculous fashion. I started The Shut- In because I recognized it. The book was published in March. That was a disappointment. I have been reading for years. Several of his books have been a disappointment. I'm thinking of giving up on him and not reading his books anymore.
