* *   Reviewed by Mary Ann Smyth

We all know that when we pick up a novel by James Patterson and one of his excellent co-writers (in this case Michael Ledwidge), we are in for a good read with tight writing, a unique plot, fleshed out characters and surprise after surprise. Now You See Her fits this bill to the proverbial 'T'.

Nina Bloom is not who everyone thinks she is. As Jeanine, on a spring break, she committed a vehicle crime in Key West, Florida. Her life changed forever at that moment. She was married afterwards, thinking how lucky she was to have such a good husband. But things are not always what they seem. As she finds out.

Years later, with a new name and the title of lawyer, she is sent to Florida on a pro bono case to check into the death penalty case of a black man accused of murdering a white woman. As she works to free a man she feels is innocent, her past seems ready to catch up to her. Once again, her life could change irretrievably.

I can't reveal any more. Wouldn't be fair to the authors or to you, the reader. You want the surprises to be surprises. And they abound in Now You See Her.
