    • Ex-detective Jon Roscoe was head of security at London’s luxurious Tribeca Hotel and he thought he’d seen it all, until the day the persistent reporter tried to breach the grounds and enter the hotel. But once again, Roscoe evicted him, threatening him with police action if he showed his face again. Roscoe and his team were protecting the billionaire businessman who was currently on trial at the Old Bailey for attempted murder. He and his long suffering wife of twenty years were in a suite o [...]

    • Patterson and Gold return for another joint writing assignment in the BookShot collection. Jon Roscoe remains head of Global Security for the Tribeca Luxury Hotel chain, anchoring himself at the glamorous London establishment. During a high-profile criminal trial, the hotel is housing the defendant, billionaire Harvey Rylands. Accused of attempting to murder his lover, Elegant Daniels, Rylands has done all he can to drag out alternate theories of the crime, while acting as though he is above rep [...]

      Really enjoyed this one too. As I said, Roscoe is a good character. Engaging, honest and reminiscent of an action movie hero, its hard not to enjoy reading about his escapades in these books. And that poor Tribeca Hotel is giving him serious trouble! These are addictive! Short, fast paced and laced with action. An easy read!

    • I liked the story and I thought it was wrapped up pretty well at the end. I only picked this up because I was waiting for another book that I had reserved at the library. I will continue to read more of Patterson's BookShots as they give me a break in between reading normal sized books, although I probably won't read another Jon Roscoe as I didn't really care for him as a character. The only problems I had with this book were the obvious symbols of London being included in the descriptions to hi [...]

    • Excellent Highly recommend

    • Another of James Patterson's shorter novella's - meaning even less character development than usual. This is also the second in a series about a geezer named Jon Roscoe, although the term series is pretty loose, because he is fairly superfluous to the plot, and you learn basically nothing about him, so it could have been anyone really - but anyways - typical non-sensical twists and turns and unbelievable conclusions where it all neatly resolves make this another poor Patterson and the continued [...]

      Average read, won't miss much if you don't read this.

    • This one annoyed me right from the beginning, when we are re-introduced to Jon Roscoe, the most generic and boring action hero ever created. Mr. Roscoe heads up security at one of the world's most exclusive and luxurious hotels, where we see him work to placate the needs of the mega-wealthy while being sure to keep out the riffraff (i.e. regular people). The book begins with Roscoe chasing down a journalist who sneaked onto the hotel premises. Since this journalist--a rather frail, older gentlem [...]

    • Another good quick read in the Bookshots format from James Patterson.This is the second of these Bookshots stories to feature Jon Roscoe, the head of a security at a luxury London hotel. The first story featured the opening of that hotel which was disrupted by a criminal element.This story takes place a month or so later, but doesn't reference the previous one and can easily be read as a stand alone story.It tells the tale of a billionaire businessman on trial for the attempted murder of his lov [...]

    • Another book with the setting of a luxury hotel in London, the same hotel as a previous Bookshots (The Hostage). Fast paced, many twists and turns, page turner for sure. A few of the same characters as the previous book, but in different scenario. Loved it.

    • Another fast-paced read from James Patterson with a surprisingly complex plot. A woman violently attacked in her own bed. A billionaire businessman on trial at The Old Bailey. Was really hard to put this one down. 4

    • good story, would be a story that James could make into a longer tale.

    • Next in the Jon Roscoe short stories series. A good quick thriller, set at a luxury hotel.

    • An airport read.

    • PassableThis was a fair enough story line. The content had a barely believable and was all a bit contrived. Readable enough

    • I liked this one better than the first book in the series. I like the characters and hope there will be more to come in this series.
