Three women fled the scene -- but did one commit the crime? When mob accountant Anthony Costello, nephew of the don of central Florida, is fatally stabbed in his own kitchen, the numbers are off. Way off. There were three women in the house with him that morning -- his wife, Anna; his maid, Serena; and his personal chef, Sarah. All three have reason to want him dead. And al Three women fled the scene -- but did one commit the crime? When mob accountant Anthony Costello, nephew of the don of central Florida, is fatally stabbed in his own kitchen, the numbers are off. Way off. There were three women in the house with him that morning -- his wife, Anna; his maid, Serena; and his personal chef, Sarah. All three have reason to want him dead. And all three are missing. What's more, chef Sarah happens to be married to homicide detective Sean Walsh. Walsh may be a bad husband, but he's a good cop. And one with a ready audience: his vengeful ex-partner, who's in charge of the investigation; and Anthony's uncle, who has his own powerful hold over Walsh. Both are watching his every move. But even if Walsh can find the women and bring them in, it'll be their word against that of a dead man -- and none of them can be trusted.

    Three Women Disappear 4 ⭐ A quick and fun mystery. The story is told from multiple perspectives; Sarah (Chef and wife of Det. Sean), Anna ("accountant"/mobster's wife), Serena (maid) and detective Sean. The accountant was found dead and it was partially a whodunit type of mystery. The format was a little strange at first as it started with interviews at a police station then after I get a hang of it I find this book entertaining. Come and Get Us 2 ⭐ Almost DNF this one. Unbelievable plot. Main s Three Women Disappear 4 ⭐ A quick and fun mystery. The story is told from multiple perspectives; Sarah (Chef and wife of Det.

    It took me a little while to get into the plot due to four constantly shifting narrators, each telling their version of events, which was a bit confusing at first. And the interrogations tending to go on longer that one would expect. But once the plot got rolling, it held my attention and brought things to a very satisfactory conclusion. As for the bonus novel, Come and Get Us, I’d give it 2 stars. It is one thing to keep the reader guessing, but it felt manipulative.

    Well, JP managed to piss me off again! This weak book that was so annoying I wanted to pitch it after 3 days of struggling to read it. Only to realize the second “bonus” book at the end was previously published and I’ve already read it. What an asshat!

    No surprises in this story. I had it all figured out early in the book. Still, an okay read overall.

    As we settle into 2021 with the date being the 2nd January 2021, I bring to you my first review for 2021. A new mystery by James Patterson and a new unknown author Shan Serafin. This book contained two mystery stories - one full-length novel "Three Women Disappear" and a bonus novella called "Come and Get Us". In Three Women Disappear we learn that a mob accountant named Anthony Costello has been killed and the three main suspects were the women in his life - his current wife Anna, his chef, and As we settle into 2021 with the date being the 2nd January 2021, I bring to you my first review for 2021. A new mystery by James Patterson and a new unknown author Shan Serafin. This book contained two mystery stories - one full-length novel "Three Women Disappear" and a bonus novella called "Come and Get Us". In Three Women Disappear we learn that a mob accountant named Anthony Costello has been killed and the three main suspects were the women in his life - his current wife Anna, his chef, and the wife of a police detective Sarah and a new immigrant, his maid Serena. Each woman though is telling their events of what happened and not pointing the blame at themselves. As the book goes along, we learn that each of these women has a strong motive to start fresh and it looks like everybody involved in writing their own story and finding a perfect scapegoat to go down for the murder of Anthony Costello. However, will the "real killer or killers" get away with the murder? I quite liked this story as it was written well and fast-paced despite having a high number of characters and their viewpoints. Three Women Disappear had a strong Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie / Strangers on a Train feel to the story. The second tale also written by the same authors was a short novella called Come and Get Us about a family ( dad, mum, and a little girl) who while driving is pushed off the road and now has to survive as they are hunted due to the husband's actions. Can they survive the nightmare or will they all be dead by the time nightfall hits? I know quite a few people judge James Patterson and therefore refuse to read his books, but I love that he gives a hand to authors starting and helping them leap-frog their platforms. If you love helping new authors like Shan Serafin, then check out Three Women Disappear/Come and Get Us as one of your 2021 reads.

    I'm really far behind in a lot of my reviews due to the dumpster fire that was 2020 and still may be 2021-- who knows at this point. Normal James Patterson fare here. Quick, short chapters. Intriguing characters. A few surprising twists and turns. Kept me engaged enough to not cheat on this book with another one. Did it blow my socks off? No . . . so four stars.

    Returned this book to the library. I read every Patterson book, and I know immediately if I am going to like it or not. No go on his one. Story related to mob. I grew up in a mob neighborhood, saw the real thing. NEXT BOOK.........................

    Pretty good book. Actually, it’s a pleasure to read about three disparate women in a seriously desperate situation: “the trophy wife, the maid, and the cook.” Kick-ass performance.

    Patterson needs to stick with the tried and true "co-authors" he uses. Shan Serafin wrote a very bad book. The storyline was predictable and the use of the first person singular for a variety of characters was honestly extremely confusing to follow. In addition, it's like this author watched Good Fellas or the Godfather to get an idea for how the "mob" worked. I wanted to put it down but thought what the heck it is short. And obviously the second "short" story was one of his book shots I had rea Patterson needs to stick with the tried and true "co-authors" he uses. Shan Serafin wrote a very bad book.

    I usually devour Patterson's books, but this one was a huge disappointment. The story is a typical who-done-it, but it lacked punch. It was told in a manner that was flat and unimaginative, it reminded me of the dialogue of the old TV show Dragnet. Three women fled the scene -- but did one commit the crime?

HIs wife, Anna, his chef, Sarah and his housekeeper, Serena are all under investigation, Tony's uncle Vincent demands that Police Detective Sean Walsh find them first and figure out who is responsible for his nephew's death. The ladies are all very interesting characters and I found myself cheering them on.

    Two Patterson novellas for the price of one...The 1st "Three Women Disappear" was like watching Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk"...The murder of a mobster told to us through a different prospective of each of the protagonists...Like the movie, kind of confusing until you get the hang of it...The Second, "Come and Get Us," if I'm to continue the movies analogies, was like "The River Wild," with a mother protecting her family from thugs who've forced them off the road as they attempt to survive in th Two Patterson novellas for the price of one...The 1st "Three Women Disappear" was like watching Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk"...The murder of a mobster told to us through a different prospective of each of the protagonists...Like the movie, kind of confusing until you get the hang of it...The Second, "Come and Get Us," if I'm to continue the movies analogies, was like "The River Wild," with a mother protecting her family from thugs who've forced them off the road as they attempt to survive in the wilderness...Just Okay!

    3.5 Stars The first story wasn't too bad. It was kind of a lot with the different characters but the murder part and unraveling it all was good. I had previously read the second story so I didn't listen to it again. Fast listen. 3.5 Stars The first story wasn't too bad.

    An interesting, but sightly confusing narrative interviewing the three women. It dragged on a bit, but when the three of them got together it sparked up the action. Go girls!!!!

    Was not one of James best outings. Lumbered along really just wasn't all that exciting. Story is told from four different points of view which i dont mind but not sure it helped this book.

    This was a quick read, but seemed sort of shallow. You mostly knew the gist of the story after the first few chapters, and there were only one or two things you didn't see coming, and some of the story line didn't feel like it was wrapped up by the end of the book.

    This novel moves along well and provides a quick read about 3 women that fled the death of one husband. The husband is the nephew of a mob boss. There is a lot of interrogation that throws off the flow a bit but comes back later to help layout the plot. It is typical of James Patterson's novels.
