BookShots remain a wonderful way to spend a few hours, especially when bundling a number of them together to spend a day and permitting easier comparison in a single review. In this collection of three stories, the reader is able to explore three distinct stories that will keep them on the edge of their seats. From an amateur detective thriller to a quasi-police procedural, and ending with a longer manhunt story, James Patterson and his collaborators show the distinct advantage of BookShot readi [...]
Ok so the first 2 stories were alright. The last one I don't even know how to describe it. I can't even remember what it's called. At first, I was reminded of the Private series, which I enjoy. I quickly lost that opinion. Honestly, I really cannot tell you what it was about or what the main character's name is. By far, one of the worst James Patterson stories I've read.
This is a captivating read. Three book shots in one and they will have you on the edge of your seat.
I didn't realize until I got this book home that it was actually three separate stories. From the back cover:"The Moores Are Missing - The More family just vanished from their home without telling a soul. A last-minute vacation? A kidnapping? A run for their lives? You'll never see the truth coming.The Housewife - Maggie Denning is a former chief detective adjusting to a quiet life in the suburbs with her family. But when the woman next door is brutally murdered, Maggie starts investigating - an [...]
Bleh. I didn't expect much and I didn't get much. Three separate stories where not a whole lot actually happened. The middle on was the most gripping as far as having some element of mystery, but the rest was pretty simple and straightforward. Each story didn't really get interesting until the end.
I was interested in this book's story line but I felt this story was too slow moving for me.
3 short stories - very quick reads. All about plot and "who dunnit?" 2 days into vacation and now I need a new book!
This was not as good as I was expecting it to be. It was a predictable story and the first part gave to much away making it easy to guess how it was going to end.
As most know Patterson's first career was on Madison Avenue. He grew up and practiced advertising when the notion of "mass market" ruled. In his early writing days, he produced enviable thrillers. He has become a factory. Co-authorships, masterclasses, and now something called "Bookshots". The latter is billed as a revolution in reading"a whole new kind of book-100% story-driven, no fluff, always under $5, and written cowritten by James Patterson himself."The description of these short efforts g [...]
Love the Missing MooreBook was awesome loved all 3 stories left your in suspense! Great reading!!! Would recommend this book to anyone that loves James Patterson writings!
Three very different stories in one paperback- and all engrossing. Strong characters. Plots that move the action along quickly. I was pleasantly surprised to find all three so much fun to read. A family goes missing and one of their best friends will not stop looking for them. Law enforcement uses a unique weapon. Then a former Chief of Homicide Detectives who has become a stay at home mom to young twins while her husband continues as a cop, cannot stop investigating the odd happenings in their [...]
"The Moores Are Missing" is actually three novellas in one book. Each short story is intense and action packed in its own way, even with the different storylines. I enjoyed reading these short stories very much. Each one pulled you in and kept your attention until the very end. A truly great read! "The Moores Are Missing": The Moore family disappear from their home without a trace, leaving behind everything, including cell phones, clothes, wallets and purses. A family friend sets out to find the [...]
I read this book and The Couple Next Door on my Florida vacation. Both are terrific airplane/vacation books. The Moors Are Missing is three novellas that James Patterson co-authors. The Moors Are Missing is a disappearing family mystery. A friend tracks his missing friends across international borders and gets in over his head with cops and mobsters. Luckily he has a savvy sidekick along for the ride. I give it a 3/5. The Housewife is a retired Police Detective that can't keep her nose out of he [...]
I like the new novelette concept for quick reads
James Patterson gave us three novellas written with three different authors.In The Moores Are Missing with Loren D. Estleman, the Moore family just vanished from their home without telling a soul. Family friend Kevin comes by for a scheduled visit and finds them vanished without a trace. They left everything behind, including their cell phones. Kevin isn't sure if they just decided to get away from it all, if they were kidnapped or if they were in some kind of danger. Despite being warned off by [...]
Okay so I bought this book because it contained 3 different stories with James Patterson paired with 3 other authors. I thought how bad could it be - turns out - kind of bad. The Moores Are Missing was kind of blah and lacked some real oomph to it. I had hoped for more of a page turner but was kind of disappointed. The Housewife was just kind of a rambling book that had me questioning Maggie and her judgmental, boring and conceited ways. She was a retired chief of detectives who is now a stay-at [...]
A Trilogy of short stories. I enjoyed the first two but couldn't get into the third.From the Dust Jacket:"The Moores Are Missing: In a placid suburban town, the Moores, a perfect family, suddenly vanish without a trace. There are ominous signs that it may not have been by choice. But when law enforcement turns up no answers, their neighbor and friend won't let their disappearance go uninvestigated.The Housewife: Former chief of detectives Maggie Denning is adjusting to a quiet new life in the su [...]
The Moores are Missing is actually a book with 3 stories :1. THE MOORES ARE MISSING with Loren D. Estleman2. THE HOUSEWIFE with Sam Hawken3. ABSOLUTE ZERO with Ed ChattertonThe Moores are Missing is a story about a family that goes missing without a trace. Their friend is concerned, and goes to the police, but can he trust the police? The Housewife is a story about a former police chief who discovers a suburban sex ring in her neighborhood, and people are turning up dead. Her husband is on the c [...]
The Moores are missing - meh. The Moores suddenly take a trip to Canada? Money involved. Main character talks his female computer tech acquaintance into helping him find his friends.The Housewife - meh. A bunch of bored suburban housewives and their men are pimping themselves out until one of them turns up dead and the jig is up. The housewife is a former Chief of police but is relegated to staying home with her twins; yet she doesn't trust her neighbors or her husband (he wasn't very trustworth [...]
First story was ok, Second story was decent last story was back to terrorism and politics. James Patterson needs to go back to writing his own stories and now focus on pumping out a dozen plus books a year by "Co Authors" Quality over Quantity. Its been over a year since i read one of his books that was so good i couldnt put it down. I miss Alex Cross and Nana Mama and the characters he carefully created. As i mentioned in another review if i wanted to read about polictics and terrorism i would [...]
This was three mystery/suspense novellas, each about 150 pages. The first story (The Moores are Missing) was my least favorite. Not great characters or much of a story line. The second story (The Housewife) was the most traditional murder mystery of the bunch. The last story (Absolute Zero) was a vendetta/suspense type story about an ex special forces operative who goes after a drug kingpin. Overall this was a quick paced read, and there was something nice about reading shorter stories that were [...]
Two out of Three Ain't BadI enjoyed two of the three stories in this book. I just couldn't get into the last one. Probably just me. I do prefer Mr. Patterson's long novels than his short stories. Believe that it due to not getting enough of character development in some of past short stories. I will say in the first story about the Moore's, we were able to get to know the main characters quite well. Mr. Patterson had good writing partners with these stories.
Ugh. I now know why none of these three stories made it into their own books. The first story was just OK - not that great. The second story was the best. The third story wasn't something I'd ever associate with James Patterson's style. I'm happy it was a relatively inexpensive book because if I'd spent more on it I'd have really felt like I wasted my money. I wouldn't suggest Mr. Patterson partner with any of these writers.
Rating 4.5/5 This is a collection of 3 short stories by James Patterson, Obviously the Moore's are Missing, the Housewife, and Absolute Zero. It took me a while to finish only because of other priorities and also getting distracted with other books >_< but they are all amazing stories for what they are and I would recommend it to any James Patterson fan or anyone who likes stories with twists and turns.
First story was pretty good. Second story wasn't good. The characters' actions didn't make much sense. Third story should be called Rambo. Not Rambo 1 either where there was actually a story and a point to be made. This is Rambo 3 where he takes out a helicopter with an arrow. As with all books with James Patterson, you'll enjoy the book as long as you don't think about what's happening in the plot.
the book was three different stories with three different and new co-writers. The first story - The Moores are Missing was not that great. The second story The Housewife was a little better but the third one - Absolute Zero it could have been a book on its own and maybe add a little more to it - that was the only saving part of the whole book - not one of the better books by James Patterson
Of the three short stories in the The Moores Are Missing, The Housewife is the best. However, having said that if you read mysteries, the overused plot is as old as time. The killer comes as no great surprise to the reader. Maggie the main character takes a little longer to arrive at the truth.
Patterson et. hit it out of the park. Three novellas or is it book shots? One piece is better and more exciting than the other. Characters here ca be carried on, with more thrillers in their future. I don't enjoy most short story or novella type literature, but these three pieces got my attention.
This book is actually 3 novellas: The Moores are Missing; The Housewife; Absolute Zero. I enjoy Patterson's books occassionally; this is the first book of his I have read in this format. I didn't enjoy these less-meaty stories. Yes, they were a quick read. The novella, Absolute Zero is an espionage story - I am not into that genre at all.
Don't waste your money on this book! Just three short stories that weren't good enough to develop into books!Not anything like a James Patterson book. Thought I was buying one novel by James Patterson but got three short c-grade stories by unknown authors selling under Patterson's name. Wouldn't have bought it if a realized what I was paying for!
