First Line: My name is Nick Pellisante, and this is where it started for me, one summer out on Long Island at “the wedding of weddings.”

Aspiring actress Andie DeGrasse ends up as a juror in one of the biggest trials in quite some time. Mafia boss, Dominic Cavello, aka “The Electrician,” is connected to hundreds of horrendous crimes. But he’s not going to go down without a fight. Senior FBI agent Nick Pellisante has spent more than a few years tracking down Cavello and putting together the evidence for this case. He’s convinced that Cavello will try something in order to get out of this. And indeed he does, not once but twice. And it will be Nick and Andie that have to team up in the end to finally catch Cavello once and for all.

This book was just okay for me. It wasn’t spectacular. It was typical Patterson – it read quickly and somewhat kept my interest. I definitely prefer it when Patterson is the sole author. But this one was still good and suspenseful but the ending was just a little too neat and tidy in my opinion. It was just okay.
