I have to admit that I have stayed clear of James Patterson's books for a few months. That should sound odd because most authors bring out one book a year, maybe two but Mr Patterson has been churning them out at a rate that three authors would find difficult and the 'thriller effect' became lost. Maybe that's because he rarely writes books alone but with other writers.
That said he was always one of my favourite authors and I always looked forward to his next book, especially the Alex Cross and Lindsey Boxer novels. 10th Anniversary sees the next instalment of Boxer and her intrepid group of chums in the Women's Murder Club. They get involved in three stories running consecutively. One sees Yuki prosecuting a female heart surgeon for the murder of her husband, a serial rapist date raping his victims and a young girl who is found wandering around nearly naked after giving birth to her now missing baby.
The book is okay and has the usual short chapters and so is quick and easy to read but is more evidence that James Patterson is concentrating more on churning out books rather than the content. Even on the inside cover there are dates of three more books in the coming months. I would honestly rather read one really good book a year than half a dozen drab stories. Although I wouldn't describe this as drab it's below par for such a writer and only worth three stars.
