The good**

New York's Lombardo's Steak House is famous for three reasons--the menu, the clientele, and now, the gruesome murder of an infamous mob lawyer. Effortlessly, the assassin slips through the police's fingers, and his absence sparks a blaze of accusations about who ordered the hit.

The bad

And the dead

Back off--*or die--*is the clear message Nick receives as he investigates for a story of his own.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that great Patterson and Roughan have done better before. I thought the prologue was the best part of the book. Written in the first person using Daniels as the narrator is not a successful move. I thought Daniels character was to immature with off the wall comments that really don`t fit. Not funny. Apart from the Daniels character the ending was not that bad. It does wrap. A tale to read for a Patterson fan but do not rush to buy it.
