Kill Me If You Can - by James Patterson & Marshall Karp

This book opens with expert assassin "The Ghost" skillfully executing a hit at Grand Central Station and then disappearing in the chaos he creates, like he had never been there in the first place.  Art student Matthew Bannon is also there, and, on his way out of the train station, runs across Walter Zelvas, and his stashed bag of diamonds, as he is dying from a gunshot inflicted by "The Ghost."  His choice to take the diamonds puts him, and his art professor girlfriend Katherine in serious danger, with the ruthless international Diamond Syndicate on his trail and willing to do what it takes to get them back and make those responsible pay.

The novel is fast paced and has a lot of interesting plot twists, including a rather surprising revelation about midway through the book.  I found the book hard to put down.  Matthew Bannon is very likable and it would not surprise me to see him re-appear in a sequel.  If you enjoy a good suspense-thriller, I would recommend giving this one a try.
