From the number one New York Times bestselling coauthor of Judge & Jury and Lifeguard comes this electrifying solo debut, The Blue Zone.

Kate Raab’s life seems almost perfect: her boyfriend, her job, her family. Then her father runs into trouble with the law. His only recourse is to testify against his former accomplices in exchange for his family’s placement in the Witness Protection Program. But one of them gets cold feet. In a flash, everything Kate can count on is gone.

Now, a year later, her worst fears have come true: Her father has disappeared into what the WITSEC agency calls “the blue zone” and someone close to him is found brutally murdered. With her family under surveillance, the FBI untrustworthy, and her father’s menacing “friends” circling with increasing intensity, Kate sets off to find her father and uncover the secrets someone will kill to keep buried.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauri | 2/13/2014

    " Good book, far from what I would usually pick up... mafia, drug cartel-style, secret identities... chase scenes...My husband would like it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 2/12/2014

    " This book was totally enjoyable with twists and turns and an ending I didn't figure out. I also appreciated the fact that it wasn't 500-700 pages long which seems to be the length of books I've been reading lately. This one was one I could spend a dreary day with and finish before going to sleep. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 2/10/2014

    " If you love a shocking thriller, this is one that would take you to the edge of the seat. Andrew Gross had provided bone-racking chills and shocking twists and turns you didn't see coming. Kate Raab thought she had the perfect life. But when her father's arresting by the FBI, things change drastically and sending her world into a tailspin. It goes from bad to worse, when her father goes missing and people are targeting her family. We see her make some bold moves and question everyone and everything she knows and trusts and loves. And things blur along the edges and making her a prime target, when she goes find out the truth about her family and finds her father. What a rush! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiana | 2/8/2014

    " This book really pulled me in. It was a fairly quick read for me. Granted when i read it I was in my freshman year of high school, so I was reading stuff i hadn't learned about yet. I didn't want to put it down, I really enjoyed it. I agree with some that it isn't a life-changing book, however i think it definitely has enough mystery and thriller moments that you can get pretty sucked in. "

    " Could not put this book down...what a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 1/11/2014

    " I liked the plot with all its twists. Some predictable and others not so much. The only thing that kept me from giving it a higher rating was there was too much swearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 1/8/2014

    " Read this book in one day-stayed awake past my bedtime to finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lilli | 1/13/2013

    " A great thriller. I would expect nothing less from a James Patterson coauthor. Andrew Gross had me hooked at the prologue. At the end of every chapter I'd tell myself, "just one more chapter." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 12/26/2012

    " A mystery & detective story. Keeps you interested. "

    " A total page turner!!! I am not a fast reader and finished in two days! I loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kw | 6/12/2011

    " Repetitive in spots and sometimes a bit stilted, but for the most part, enjoyable. How can you not be excited when you don't really know whom, if anyone, you can trust? I thought he did a good job going solo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charleen | 5/23/2011

    " This was a very quick read. There were a lot of "half-revelations" where it wasn't suspenseful so much as confusing, and that definitely detracted from my enjoyment, but I liked it more as we moved toward the end and the pieces started falling into place. Overall, good but not great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Giwi | 5/20/2011

    " I found this read to be somewhat dull in the sense of narrator style, however it was saved by a nice twist (or 3) in its latter stages. would make a good Hollywood film if it isn't already "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 5/18/2011

    " A likable, smart female protagonist, excellent writing, lots of twists and turns, complex characters, betrayal, a terrific plot: All these and more made for a riveting, nearly unputdownable read. I've read two of this author's books so far, and will certainly read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 The | 5/15/2011

    " fast moving book , hard to put down - loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio Book. I wasn't that impressed. Witness protection from the drug cartels, and the dad who went into the witness protection was the bad guy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 4/28/2011

    " This thriller is deeply calculated. I couldn't stop thinking about the plot lines and connections; it's so rich. Of all the books I've ever read, I think it's the most natural movie script I've ever seen. Brilliantly evocative and touching ... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 4/21/2011

    " Very Good; plot twists and keeps interest! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 4/3/2011

    " I did enjoy this book - always exciting, characters you could connect with and worry about - a couple unexpected turns in the plot - overall a great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 3/26/2011

    " Very enjoyable, interesting, easy read. Nice brain palate cleanser, which is the mood I'm in right about now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 3/17/2011

    " Andrew Gross write with James Patterson. I can see some of James Patterson influences in this book, but with a different twist. The main character, Kate Raab's discovered that the life she thought she had is not. How did this happened? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 3/2/2011

    " well.. you can call it a thriller.. but i just find it so stupid that the story was just all about the father's identtity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fiona | 3/1/2011

    " Better than I first expected. Predictable ending but a good book just the same "
