You’ve Been Warned – James Patterson and Howard Roughan

Published by Headline Publishing Group Ltd ISBN 978-1-74180-047-0

Youve been warnedKirstin Burns has lived her life by the philosophy, ‘don’t think, just shoot’- pictures that is.  Struggling to make ends meet, she works full time as the nanny for the fabulously wealthy Turnbull family, looking after their two wonderful children and waiting for her glamorous life as a New York fashion photographer to begin.  When her photographs are considered at an elite Manhattan art gallery, it seems she might finally get the chance that will start her career.

But Kristin has a major distraction: forbidden love.  The man of her dreams is almost hers for keeps.  Breathless with an inexhaustible passion and the excitement of being within reach of her dreams, Kristin ignores all signs of catastrophe brewing.

Fear exists for a reason.  And Kristin can only dismiss the warnings for so long.  Searching desperately for the truth through the lens of her camera, she can only hope that it’s not too late.

This isn’t the typical John Patterson I know, but this unusal offering has an intriguing storyline, and it took me a day to read it.

Kristin loves the children that she works for, but not the wife.  The husband, well that is another story.  But when she comes across a murder on the way to work one day, she can’t resist the urge to get her camera out and take photos.  But that strange occurrence is only the start of an incredibly strange journey.

Right until the end, I was unable to decide who Kristin really was.  The mystery deepened when she starts seeing, photographing and worse, talking, to dead people, including her own father.

Mixing this up with the story of the Turnbulls and Kristin’s own part to play in their marriage, the whole plot boils down to a whodunit that is only worked out in the last chapter.

An incredibly complicated paranormal story that is thoroughly enjoyable.
