    BookShots can be hit or miss, forcing the reader to have a stiff upper lip when they come across something that does not work for them. While James Patterson and Tim Arnold have a somewhat entertaining piece here, I failed to be pulled in or sense anything captivating about which I could laud their work.

While James Patterson and Tim Arnold have a somewhat entertaining piece here, I failed to be pulled in or sense anything captivating about which I could laud their work. Tim MacGhee is a hardworking ad man in New York’s cutthroat industry. He’s seen his fair share of success over the last decade, but at times, there must be room for growth. MacGhee has been entertaining a move to a rival firm, one that has the one thing he desires, ultimate control. However, for the time being, this former Marine must bide his time and wait for everything to fall into place. On his way into work one morning, MacGhee learns that one of his colleagues has been murdered, shot in the back of the head. The worry that pervades the office is too much and Tim heads home to his patient wife. When two more people with ties to the ad firm turn up dead, MacGhee begins to worry, more before he also saw them within hours of their deaths. Might someone be trying to send a message with these murders? MacGhee is nothing, if not entirely helpful with the authorities, revealing some of the water cooler gossip that might point to a suspect. However, with all the stress that he has on his plate, should MacGhee not be worried that he could be in the killer’s crosshairs? Patterson and Arnold offer an interesting story here, which may appeal to some readers. However, I found it lacked the needed level of suspense. My month of BookShot binge reading has truly been a gamble. Some stories pull me in from the opening pages, while others fail to assert their literary grip on me. In this piece, Patterson and Arnold try to take readers into the exciting life of ad executives, focussing attention on Tim MacGhee. This protagonist does have some backstory on offer, as well as a little character development, which gives the reader a little better understanding about where he situates himself in the larger narrative. However, I found him to be lukewarm at best, which surely took away from the story’s delivery The secondary characters support the story as well, though I found myself equally as divorced from their key characteristics. The story, interesting on paper, seemed to lack the necessary impetus to keep things engaging. A murder should not only have a central character exploring his own life, but provide strong pacing and intrigue, with the murderer on the loose. Patterson and Arnold have the kernel of a decent story here, though its delivery left me less than satisfied. Kudos, Messrs. Patterson and Arnold, for this unique piece. While it did little for me, one can hope that others will see something worth their time. Love/hate the review?

    This book was pretty good, it was fast paced and entertaining. I couldn't figure it out at first and really did think it was going to have a better ending but I guess it was okay. It could have been better though. This book was pretty good, it was fast paced and entertaining.

    This book had a very obvious outcome. I knew all along what the story would be. It was slightly entertaining, but I didn't like the main character, Tim, at all. He is one of those people who likes to put on a show with his house and his possessions. People close to him keep turning up dead, so that is a problem for Tim. Police come to investigate the first murder, but it is so obvious to the reader what happened, that I just wanted to complete the book to determine if my thoughts were correct (t This book had a very obvious outcome.

I do like Bookshots by James Patterson (and assorted authors) as they are a fast-paced, quick read.

    This 2017 novella by authors James Patterson and Tim Arnold follow an advertising exec through a few busy days in his life. Because this novella, partly due to length restrictions, develops only the protagonist, it is paper thin. I feel this almost anything I say about the story, other than be suspicious, will tend to reveal the not very surprising climax. The actual companies used in the advertising sequences and NYC locations used add a little realistic flavor.

    In this case, a lightening-fast bookshot is a good thing. The book was just over 100 pages long, and by page 60 I was hoping something, anything interesting would happen. Definitely written by the co-author, Tim Arnold, more than James Patterson. The last two chapters were the best chapters. The book is written in a unique style, I'll give it that, but there just too much that drags this book down to a two-stars from me. Thank goodness this was a bookshot because I could not wait for it to be ov In this case, a lightening-fast bookshot is a good thing.

    This book was very amateurishly written by what one could presume is a first-time writer out of high school Although the book cost $4.99 it is sad when the story is so bad you know who the criminal is at the start of the story while hoping for a twist only to find there's nothing at the end Boring and disappointing. Makes me think twice about buying any more James Patterson and co-author bookshot books This book was very amateurishly written by what one could presume is a first-time writer out of high school Although the book cost $4.99 it is sad when the story is so bad you know who the criminal is at the start of the story while hoping for a twist only to find there's nothing at the end Boring and disappointing.

    Least expected! The investigation is ongoing and people are dropping like flies. Tim McGhee is cooperating with the investigation as much as he can. After all, he is the go-to-guy with everyone within the company. Life is good, well at least from the outside looking in. Tim is on the verge of getting this new job, an increase in pay, his wife loves him and he has 2 beautiful kids.Is it ever enough?

    Everyone says Tim MacGhee is the man to see at Marterelli & Partners as he’s the man who knows what’s going on. Three murders have occurred and the victims were all connected to the ad agency. Now everyone eyes Tim suspiciously. Tim wanted to impress people and lived way beyond his means. He was stressed and got rid of the people who caused the stress. Tim had a loving family but they were not enough. He was a selfish individual who only cared for himself.

    Pointless Guy leaves army, but keeps his gun. Later uses it to kill three people. Acts surprised when police arrest him. He's telling the story as a first-person narrative from his jail cell afterwards, in a flat matter-of-fact manner, directly to the reader. Two stars because this "story" could have been the start of a real story. Maybe they'll go back and write it someday. Pointless Guy leaves army, but keeps his gun. Later uses it to kill three people.

    Nooners A short read I think it's one of Patterson's weaker story lines. Not sure it was worth the short time that it took to read. Felt like a script for an hour long police story.

    Knew almost right away what would happen. Don't really care for these short books, would rather have a book that I can sink my teeth in and enjoy for awhile. May have to give up on Patterson as one of my favorite authors! Knew almost right away what would happen.

    Short But Good This was a short and predictable book by one of the best author of our time. It was still fun to read even though it was easy to figure out the outcome. Main character was a fun character and you enjoy him in spite of himself. Quick read but worth it.

    I love James Patterson novels and assumed the Bookshots books would be as good as the novels. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed. This was the first Bookshots I read and will probably be the last!

    Couldn’t put it down I really like the way you start out in disbelief and little by little you come to a realization and then the whys are answered and it all comes together. I read it in a single afternoon. I definitely recommend this book.

    I just have to ask: Do Authors get paid to mention brands, vintages, car models, clothing makers and all the other blather used to convey the life style of the character?

    I didn't think I'd be a fan of the "book shots" that Patterson came out with, and I wasn't. There was pretty good character development but, little else.

    Interesting take. Nice fast read, another book good for summer. I figured out the answers early on, still worth the read if you're looking for an easy Beach book. Interesting take.
