Detective Tom Moon and his multi-talented team face off against an international crime ring looking to seize control of America's most vibrant city, Miami. The city of Miami is Detective Tom Moon's back yard. He's always kept it local, attending University of Miami on a football scholarship, and, as a Miami PD officer, protecting the city's most vulnerable. Now, as the new leader of an FBI task force called "Operation Guardian," it's his mission to combat international crime. Moon's investigative team discovers that the opportunistic "Blood Brothers" -- Russian nationals Roman and Emile Rostoff -- have evaded authorities while building a vast, powerful, and deadly crime syndicate throughout Europe and metropolitan Miami. Moon played offense for U of M, but he's on the other side of the field this time. And as the Rostoffs zero in on a target dear to Tom, they're not playing by anyone's rules.

This one criss cross was so terrible I can't believe I finished it. Not worthy of Patterson! I have read almost all of his books, but never again!

Completed the book and was happy to move along... Appreciate James Patterson opening doors for aspiring authors.

A new co-author for Patterson and very disappointing. It felt as if this book was meant for newer readers, maybe between 25 to 35 with short attention spans.

Short sentences, an abundance of internal dialogue and ineffective placement of cursing ("shit" several times on one page) which didn't match the character he was creating.

Writers at the Patterson level should be able to give us better character descriptions through dialogue and thoughts. The characters felt superficial and I really didn't care what happened to them.

I didn't finish this book but will give Born one more try on The River Murders.

(By the way, the comment below seems to belong to a different book).

The Lost was a perfect conclusion to the witch and wizard series! With tons of plot twists, I never got bored reading this book! Beginning with the continuing problems of Whit and Wisty from the previous novel, their whole world flips upside down when new enemies rise up and the powers of witches and wizards are questioned again. The re-occurring problem with the “normal” public of the city rejecting the powers of witches and wizards doesn’t get old, because James Patterson manages to change it slightly every time! One problem I have with Wisty and Whit’s parents is their useless-ness in the plots of the story. Although, I haven’t read the previous installments of the series in a while, and that might be able to explain why they aren’t helping as much.
In my opinion, I think the title “The Lost” was a very good name for the book. The losses that occur in this book contribute greatly to the decisions Whit and Wisty make. This leads me to believe that James Patterson could not have thought of a better title.
You immediately get brought into the book when Whit is faced with a problem I never thought would occur around 10 pages into the book. And from there, the relationship between Whit and Wisty in concern with their powers, and decision-making skills, actually begins to pull them apart in the middle of the book. But in the end, like the other novels, Whit and Wisty come together to face the most powerful foe they have ever faced, and the ending... is shocking.
