About Hard to Kill

Jane Smith is being hailed as James Patterson's greatest character yet, a tough-as-nails attorney up against a relentless killer. Hard to Kill features possibly the author's most stunning twist ever.

Attorney Jane Smith is mounting an impossible criminal defense.

Her client, Rob Jacobson, is the unluckiest of the unlucky. No sooner is he accused of killing a family of three in the Hamptons than a second family is gunned down.

It's not double jeopardy. It's not double murder. It's double triple homicide.

Jane's career has spanned from NYPD beat cop to Hamptons courtroom. She's tough to beat. She's even tougher to kill.

The defense may never rest.
