James Bond and Jason Bourne have just been topped! A battle for the world is set into unstoppable motion and Hays Baker is the only one who can save it.

Hays Baker and his wife Lizbeth possess super-human strength, extraordinary intelligence, stunning looks, a sex life to die for, and two beautiful children. Of course they do--they're Elites, endowed at birth with the very best that the world can offer. The only problem in their perfect world: humans and their toys!

The one with the most toys-- dies

The top operative for the Agency of Change, Hays has just won the fiercest battle of his career. He has been praised by the President, and is a national hero. But before he can savor his triumph, he receives an unbelievable shock that overturns everything he thought was true. Suddenly Hays is on the other side of the gun, forced to leave his perfect family and fight for his life.

Now a hunted fugitive, Hays is thrown into a life he never dreamed possible--fighting to save humans everywhere from extinction. He enlists all of his training to uncover the truth that will save millions of lives--maybe even his own. James Patterson's Toys is a thriller on a hyper plane--with a hero who rivals both James Bond and Jason Bourne.

Not a Patterson book. Written by Neil McMahon, that's why it isn't as good as other Pattersons - because it isn't one.

Publishers license the author's name these days, and will keep publishing a series even when the original author is dead, just by saying "So and So WITH and the name of the real person who wrote it. It's a scam.

They've done this with Cussler, Ludlum and Patterson to name a few. Watch for it.

Seems to be more like Gattaca meets Imposter meets Minority Report..

The Terminator meets the Matrix. It seemed Patterson was appealing to a young visual oriented sci-fi crowd with loads of special effects and gizmos. I was intrigued that the author would write something so different from his usual genre, and might have been a good story had it been better plotted out. I found the writing really bad, very juvenile.

Took some time getting into it. Lots of action, but few gaps here and there.

A sci-fic on the struggle between the elites (0.1 percenters of the future?) and the rest of the humans. Plot is good but only because I am not a avid sci-fic reader. (Obviously the work of the ghost writer though a departure of Patterson's normal genre of crime and mayhem.)

Could not get interested in this book because the futuristic nature of the story is just not my thing. The only Patterson book that I haven't loved.

Loyal Patterson fan. This one took me some time to get into, but i find it quite interesting, and very creative.

Wham!—no slow reveal, no fade-in. There are just bodies everywhere. Human beings are slumped in car seats, collapsed on sidewalks, lying on the floor in front of the counter at a once popular fast-food restaurant called McDonald's.
