Dr. Dylan Reinhart and Detective Elizabeth Needham—now known to audiences from the top-rated CBS series—reunite to stop the most sinister plot against New York City since 9/11. The murder of an Ivy League professor pulls Dr. Dylan Reinhart out of his ivory tower and onto the streets of New York, where he reunites with his old partner, Detective Elizabeth Needham. As the worst act of terror since 9/11 strikes the city, a name on the casualty list rocks Dylan's world. Is his secret past about to be brought to light? As the terrorist attack unfolds, Elizabeth Needham does something courageous that thrusts her into the media spotlight. She's a reluctant hero. And thanks to the attention, she also becomes a prime target for the ruthless murderer behind the attack. Dylan literally wrote the book on the psychology of murder, and he and Elizabeth have solved cases that have baffled conventional detectives. But the sociopath they're facing this time is the opposite of a textbook case. There's no time to study for the test he's about to give them. And if they fail, they die.

After being pretty unhappy with a previous James Patterson co-authored) book, I was not sure what to expect from Patterson and Howard Roughan's KILLER INSTINCT. What I got was one of best of the co-authored books yet. The story is interesting to begin with given that it is set in New York City with terrorist attacks that remind us of 9/11 in terms of committing mass murder. The story brings together two "operators" from different agencies who have worked together before. This story is all about "all hands on deck," and multiple agencies are working jointly to find out who is responsible and to stop them. This book has more twists and turns, many of which are very surprising, as it goes along. Yet the way it all unfolds is masterful, and I imagine more close to how things unfold in real life terror/disaster tales. Thus, I was surprised that the other reviews thus far are so much lower than mine. I really liked it. And to each, her or his own.

Not a typical Patterson page turner.
Couldn't keep my interest. Quit reading it half way through.

Quick read. Enjoyable and at times I got into the illusion of the story where I found myself not putting the book down. However, I found points of the book that I felt were weak and could have been done much better.

A little better than most. Think when his cowriter is Roughan, they're better.

This is the second of the Instinct series. The popular TV summer series Instinct is based on these books.
