Andrew Cross was one on the writers from Patterson's stable. This novel has the flavor or Patterson's early riveting novels. I was reading a Patterson hardback and this on audio at the same time. The plot of No Way Back outsshined the 12th of Never.
The plot grabbed you from the prologue and never let up. A terrific read and I am not easily satisfied. View 1 comment.

For some reason, No Way Back was recommended by either the Washington Post or more likely Costco's magazine -- but make no mistake; this is a bad, bad book. The cover itself should have been a giveaway -- it looks like an L. Ron Hubbard screed, or a Hitchhiker's Guide parody. It is badly plotted both "twists" are telegraphed early on ; it is badly written see below ; and it stars one of the most unsympathetic heroines I've ever read about.
She is described as an ex-cop, but never acts in any For some reason, No Way Back was recommended by either the Washington Post or more likely Costco's magazine -- but make no mistake; this is a bad, bad book. She is described as an ex-cop, but never acts in any way like she's had even the slightest law enforcement training; instead she comes across as a whiny soccer mom who repeats her tale of woe to everyone she runs across, so that we have to hear the same story over and over and OVER again.
As to the writing, it's laughably bad. Except the orange was in my gut. And it was throbbing. Her adrenaline rises, the bottom falls out of her stomach, she receives "glowering glares," she "giggles amusingly. Apr 26, Dale rated it liked it.
Unlike in his other novels, the characters in No Way Back failed to connect with me. The hallmarks of an Andrew Gross novel are all present here: an easy writing style, a quick-moving plot and some sort of shocking event that causes the main characters' lives to spin out of control. But, unlike the other books, I found myself to be lukewarm to all of the "good guys" and the sinister plot that held the bad guys together to be forced. In No Way Back the reader meets Wendy Gould, a married suburbanite who almost has a one night stand with a handsome piano player after she has had a horrible fight with her husband.
She stops it before they progress to the actual deed and while she is in the bathroom re-arranging her clothes a stranger enters the room, argues with the piano player, tosses a gun to him and then kills him. Wendy steps out, picks up the gun and then kills the attacker. Then she flees and is framed for both murders. As the bodies start to pile up, Wendy digs into her case and discovers connections that lead her to a Mexican nanny with a dangerous past. Nothing about this book was particularly bad, but Mar 02, Teena in Toronto rated it really liked it.
Wendy and her husband, Dave, had a spat last night and are still not speaking. She is meeting up with her friend, Pam, in a bar to have some drinks and to talk about it. Pam is running late and Wendy starts chatting with Curtis, who is also at the bar. Pam texts that she can't make it after all and Wendy ends up in Curtis' hotel room. Before it goes too far, Wendy stops things and goes into the washroom to freshen up.
While she's in there, she sees a man come into Curtis' room and shoot him. To Wendy and her husband, Dave, had a spat last night and are still not speaking. To save herself, Wendy shoots the guy and ends up on the run when she is blamed for the murders.

Wendy and Lauritzia have to work together so they can both get their lives back. This is the first book I've read by this author and I enjoyed it. I liked the writing style and it sucked me in right away. It's action-packed and never slows down. The chapters are short and snappy which I like. While I liked Lauritzia, I didn't care much for Wendy. Yes, I was cheering her on but I couldn't warm up to her for some reason. She had the bad luck to be in the wrong place at the wrong time that set off the chain of events. Despite not liking one of the main characters, I really enjoyed the book which is a testament to the writing and story.
The bad guys are ruthless and cold.
The pieces start falling together at the end as to what's going on and I was happy with the ending for the most part. Not to give anything away, I wasn't buying the possible love connection that was hinted at, though. It had only been four months. I look forward to reading other books by this author. I'm so glad I realized recently that I hadn't read this book when I went through an Andrew Gross reading marathon back in It was one of the best of his novels, in my opinion. I loved how he started with two seemingly unrelated story lines and brought them together about half-way through.
I kept trying to figure out how they could be related but hadn't guessed. As someone who is fascinated by Mexico and Mexican culture, I always enjoy reading novels that include Mexican 4. As someone who is fascinated by Mexico and Mexican culture, I always enjoy reading novels that include Mexican characters even though some of them were definitely not "good guys" in this one. I found, as usual, a couple of copy-editing misses seems to be pretty typical in e-books , and one small but glaringly improbable scene in which Wendy, the protagonist, colors her dark hair to blonde in "a few minutes" in a public restroom.
It's a minor point, but any woman who knows much about hair coloring could have told Gross that going from dark brown to blonde is a somewhat lengthy process involving bleach and toner and would be tough to do in a public restroom without a shower to rinse everything out, and in "a few minutes".
