From “America’s #1 storyteller” (Forbes) comes a high-speed, high-stakes, winner-take-all thrill ride of adrenaline-fueled suspense.

Matthew Bannon, a poor art student living in New York City finds a duffel bag filled with diamonds during a chaotic attack at Grand Central Station. Plans for a worry-free life with his gorgeous girlfriend Katherine fill his thoughts until he realizes he is being hunted, and that whoever is after him won’t stop until they have reclaimed the diamonds and exacted their revenge.

Trailing him is the Ghost, the world’s greatest assassin, who has just pulled off his most high-profile hit, killing Walter Zelvas, a top member of the international diamond syndicate. There’s only one small problem: the diamonds he was supposed to retrieve from Zelvas are missing. Now, the Ghost is on Bannon’s trail, but so is a rival assassin who would like nothing more than to make the Ghost disappear forever.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Patterson, more than ably assisted by the extremely talented and woefully underappreciated Marshall Karp, has in the closing days of summer come up with one of the must-read books of the season…This fabulous thriller is full of action and occasional humor, and just enough sex to make the heat rise when the book is closed. Give Kill Me If You Can a chance. You will not be sorry.”

    " This book had a great beginning And it really grab me right away and I thought how this can be a really great book. By the time I got to the end of the book I was like oh this is a bunch of crap and I hated the ending "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dena | 2/8/2014

    " GREAT BOOK! This was very suspenceful & full of twists I didnt see coming! I hope this becomes a series! "

    " Read this in one day. Typical Patterson. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gretchen | 2/5/2014

    " If you want a highly entertaining escape book, James Paterson is your answer. He never fails to entertain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica Rosenberg | 1/31/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catheriine | 1/30/2014

    " great page turning book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia Douglas | 1/29/2014

    " This was not one of my favorites of James Patterson. Characters were fine, but lacked the solidness that is usually there. The "mystery" was thrown out too suddenly and hence ruined the ending for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 1/24/2014

    " The Patterson twists saved this novel for me. I was annoyed at the art student who decided to keep the diamonds that he found in the open locker with the dead body in front of it. Had he just turned them in, life would have been so much simpler for him. Just about the time I was ready to give up on the story (C'mon, dude, you brought it on yourself by not being honest), Patterson hit me with one of the major twists in the novel. True to the Patterson formula, this is a fast paced action novel with the protagonist going up against the Russian mafia as well as several assorted professional killers. I would read a sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gail Jorgensen | 1/16/2014

    " Another good book by James Patterson he keeps you turning pages fast as you can.It involves a young artist and art teacher and a lot of nasty Russians. "
