The danger isn't in the water.

Working as a lifeguard at a Florida resort, Ned Kelly meets a woman he is wild about, the woman of his dreams. It feels perfect in every way - except that she is used to caviar and Manolo Blahniks, and he is used to burgers and flip-flops. She is a guest at the luxurious hotel - he lives above a garage.

So when Ned's cousin offers to cut him in on a rich deal he's been commissioned to execute, Ned can't turn him down. The plan is simple, just a fast break-and-enter. The risk is high, and the reward is even greater--$5 million. But on the night of the heist, something goes devastatingly wrong. Who will save the lifeguard?

Ned walks away from his job, his town, and the woman he's fallen in love with. Runs away, actually, knowing that only velocity and secrecy can save his life. But who is pursuing him? The FBI? Whoever sabotaged the heist? Or is it all somehow tied into his new love - and his oldest enemies?


Baker & Taylor
Drawn into a lucrative art heist, Ned Kelly and his friends are double-crossed, leaving Ned's friends dead, and he finds himself on the run from both the FBI and the killers as he struggles to avenge the murders and clear his own name.

It was okay but I didn't think it was anything special. Very formulaic

Marvelous book, with more twists and turns than Lombard Street, in San Francisco.
Probaly, Patterson's best book, with a perfect ending
