"To Senior Midwife Lucy Ryuan, pregnancy is not an unusual condition, it's her life's work. But when two kidnappings and a vicious stabbing happen on her watch in a university hospital in Manhattan, her focus abruptly changes. Something has to be done, and Lucy is fearless enough to try. Rumors begin to swirl, blaming everyone from the Russian Mafia to an underground adoption network. The feisty single mom teams up with a skeptical NYPD detective to solve the case, but the truth is far more twisted than Lucy could ever have imagined.."--Provided by publisher.

Disappointing and pathetic.

This probably the worst of the "James Patterson" books I've ever read and I've read 99% of them I think (except for the short books). Patterson is no more involved in this book that the name on the cover.

The book jumps from 1 scenario to a 2nd then a 3rd and then back until the very last 2 chapters. If there is a 2nd book with the 2 main characters (mid wife and cop) don't let me know - I won't bother wasting my time.

After Robert Parker died his estate licensed a writer to continue with the characters that Parker had started with. And his books have remained decent to read.

Perhaps Patterson could look for better writers to take over his namesake or just stay with the characters he knows and quit inventing new ones.

I would not recommend reading this book and certainly would not recommend buying it.

I actually couldn't finish reading this book. The midwife's behaviour is so ridiculously unbelievable and the entire premise so far fetched, I gave up. As a reader who was formerly intimately involved in the midwifery field, I respectfully suggest that the author would have been better to follow the first rule of authorship - write what you know! Clearly he knows little about midwifery.

The new procedure is tedious and confusing. Revert to the old system that is library patron friendly!

I can't find my requested books. The old way they came up easily.

I have to remember that even if it states the author of a book is James Patterson that it may actually be written by someone else. In the case of this book, Richard DiLallo must have been the author. Now I have to remember that DiLallo sucks as an author. The story is so unbelievable that I cannot figure out why Patterson even put his name on the cover unless he got paid very well for doing so.
