Andrew Gross has made quite a name for himself as co-author to bestseller writer James Patterson. With Patterson
he has penned 5 bestsellers, the newest being Lifeguard. I am an avid Patterson fan and was not sure what
to expect when I picked up Andrew Gross's first solo project, The Blue Zone
The leading character in The Blue Zone is Kate Raab, a very intelligent young lady who has had the
perfect life. Her father is a gold trader and has done well for his family over the years. They had wonderful
homes, the best of schools and a devoted mother and father.
All this comes crashing down when Kate's father is arrested by the FBI and accused of laundering money for a
Columbian drug cartel. While he is being held under investigation an attempt is made to kill the whole family.
While Kate's father continues to protests his innocence, he is forced to turn in a close friend in order to
gain immunity for himself, and his family must go into the Witness Protection program.
Kate chooses to stay behind and continue her job as a medical researcher. All seems to be well until her
father disappears into what is called the Blue Zone and people close to him begin to be murdered. Kate attempts
to find her father and discover the truth.
I was not sure what to expect with a solo effort by Andrew Gross but I was not disappointed. The storyline
was good and tight and I never saw the twists and turns coming. I would gladly read another.
