Book Review: Don't Blink by James Patterson & Howard Roughan

Synopsis (from Goodreads):  New York's Lombardo's Steak House is famous for three reasons - the menu, the clientele, and now, the gruesome murder of an infamous mob lawyer. Seated at a nearby table, reporter Nick Daniels accidentally captures a key piece of evidence that lands him in the middle of an all-out war between Italian and Russian mafia forces.
My thoughts:  First off, I have to say Nick Daniels, the main character, has more lives than a cat!  If this were real, he would seriously be the luckiest man living!  From the first chapter, his life was in danger and he managed to outrun it and stay alive and this continued throughout all 300+ pages.   
I enjoyed this book as it was an easy and exciting read.  I love James Patterson's writing and the fast pace of his books.  From the prologue, the book has your attention.  However, if you are squeamish or have a weak stomach, this book may not be for you.  I was cringing by the end of the third page.  It is a bit convoluted with a lot of unnecessary characters but all in all, it was a pretty good thriller!
