The Blue Zone by Andrew Gross (352 pgs) was sent to me for review from Harper Collins. It is Andrew Gross's debut solo effort. He has co-authored 5 novels with James Patterson, including The Jester and Judge & Jury.
From the Witness Protection Program Manual:
"The Blue Zone: the state most feared, when there is suspicion that a subject's new identity has been penetrated or blown. When he or she is unaccounted for, out of contact with the case agent, or has fled the safety of the program. When there is no official knowledge of whether that person is alive or dead."
Just when her life is starting to get back to normal, Kate starts getting a bad feeling. She thinks she is being watched and that someone has been inside her apartment. Her friend Tina is the victim of a random accident, closing the lab one night instead of Kate. Then she is hit with more bad news. Her father is missing and the Raab family case agent has been murdered!
I was a bit leary about reading this book, mostly because of the connection that Gross has with James Patterson. I really enjoyed his first few Alex Cross books, but recently, his writing just seems tired and formulaic. But there should be no worries about this book!! The Blue Zone is a First-Rate, First-Class thrill ride!! There are many twists and turns, and nothing is at it seems. This book has everything: secrets, drug cartels, government agents, Witness Protection gone awry, crazy killers and more!! If you are looking for a good book, lighter reading that's a real page turner, look no further than The Blue Zone! 4.5/5
