The Washington Post Book World "Engrossing. Ambitious and well-written,No Safe Placeis a sort of ethical suspense novel. -The Wall Street Journal "What is striking is how exactly right Patterson gets the politics and the journalism while telling a gripping tale that intertwines abuse and betrayal, ethics and ambition, romance and dysfunction. -The San Jose Mercury News "Prescient. An important and impressive work of fiction.

After No Safe Place, Silent Witness,Escape the Night and Degree of Guilt Richard North Patterson proved to be my most favourite author, even over John Grisham and Steve Martini. The campaign trail is amazing, the romance touching and the way RNP takes us to the past of the protagonist Kerry Kilcannon is just great. com User, July 19, 2001. A Kennedyesque Senator Kerry Kilcannon is running for his party's nomination for president against the vice president. This book follows Kerry's campaign across the country in the days leading up to the primary. In the end, the focus is on California, where Kerry needs to win.

With rare authenticity, Richard North Patterson depicts the world of high-stakes presidential politics on the verge of an explosion that is as dramatic as it is thought-provoking. But No Safe Place is also a story of people at their best and at their worst: their passions, their ideals, their flaws. A novel that will hold the reader enthralled from the first to the last sentence. Prologue THE CAMPAIGN April, the year 2000.

No Safe Place centres on seven days in a closly contested Presidential primary, in which political violence, abortion politics and potential scandal all converge. Kerry Kilcannon is a young senator from New Jersey, the younger brother of a murdered presidential aspirant. Now Kerry, too, is seeking the presidency. But Kerry's past and present have begun to converge. Unknown to him, he is being stalked by Sean Burke, an anti-abortion fanatic intent on killing him before election day. And Nate Cutler, a political reporter for a national newsmagazine is trying to establish that two years before - while still married - Kilcannon had an affair with Lara Costello, another reporter covering Kilcannonm which resulted in an abortion. Through a narrative which weaves past and present, No Safe Place introduces the compelling character, Kerry Kilcannon, and raises questions about abortion politics, the gun culture in America, and the degree to which the press is - or should be - intent on exposing the private lives of political leaders. On the eve of the election, those forces converge in a sensational and shocking climax.

Richard North Patterson's books have always been an engrossing read--until now. No Safe Place starts off well enough. Patterson explains that he's accomplished what he originally intended; to write compelling court room drama novels. In this story, he wants the public to know of the turmoil, sacrifice, and risks our candidates endure to run for the presidency of the United States.

The author has a talent for dropping the reader right into the action in the first sentences. In this case, a demented, gun-wielding young man enters an abortion clinic and begins shooting. With this, Patterson embarks on entertaining us with political rhetoric, hammering us with protagonist Kerry Kilcannon's speeches ad nauseum. It's not that I object to his philosophy, it's simply overkill. The righteousness of the candidate meets that of his would-be assassin--again and again and again...

The story evokes the memory of both Kennedy brothers slain for political causes. Kilcannon's love interest is believable, as is the unscrupulous current VP, against whom our hero is running. The media, most notably the press, are portrayed convincingly; altruistic, conniving, and weary.

Patterson is a superb story teller and when he sticks to characters, plots, and sub-plots, he shows mastery of his craft. No Safe Place is not a prime example of his writing.

If you can overlook Patterson's lecturing, you will still enjoy the story.

I've read nearly all of Richard North Patterson's previous books. I've liked them quite a lot mostly. In this current series of 3 (of which this is the first) he is at the very top of his game. In several of his past books he seemed to spend a fair portion of the book ruminating about childhood traumas as the focus of the book. This series is different. The focus is much more in the present and the characters past is mentioned much more briefly as an explanation of their complexity. I couldn't put the book down and am in the middle of the rest of the series now - it really is one long story in three books. It shows a behind the scenes view of American Politics that is much like the view I get from the TV series West Wing. You get the feeling that the people really do and say and think the things his characters do. He has villains (of course) but they are also multi-dimensional people and even though you don't agree with their view of the world and why they do villainous things, you can see why THEY have those views. Highly recommended! This is an author who has only gotten better over the years.

This book was published eighteen years ago yet many of the same issues are as important today as they were then, especially the issue of gun control. Kerry is a little too wonderful for my taste. He spoke softly or softened his voice about every other page. I probably won't read the next book.

This was a great mix of fiction-excitement and politics. Being from New Jersey, I was able to confer with someone close to Neward politics and he said how accurate the Newark scenes were. While I don't often feel sympathy for politicians, this book at least lets us know what they have to go through to become President. WE COULD REALLY USE A KERRY KILCANNON IN POLITICS! Also, if anyone is a R.N. Patterson fan, you should read "Private Screening" and "Silent Witness" as small aspects of No Safe Place relate to the prior books. NOTE: you need not read them to enjoy Place.

This book was a bit slow at the beginning, but the farther I read, the better it got. The writing, plot, and characterization were all excellent. The most surprising thing to me was that the author made the entire thing so completely believable. I think that's a rare accomplishment. This is the first Patterson book I've read (he seems to write mostly crime/mystery stories, which I'm not nuts about), and I'm so glad I had the experience.

Very good read, but all the hyphenation were distracting. Maybe it's because I read it on a kindle, but I've never seen that before. Great story though.

Although I read the sequel first, I found the political intrigue, mixed with pure human curiosity enough to keep me reading.

I always enjoy REP's writing, and since getting my new Kindle Fire, am very busy catching up.
Content of book is great, but there were 40 pages missing, and 40 other pages duplicated in my copy. Aggravating to have to buy a second copy to complete a partially read book.
