I'd pretty much given up on reading anything other than Patterson's Alex Cross series lately as nearly every book he has written (or at least put his name on!) has been nothing more than average, if that. A friend of mine lent me this book and so I gave it a read and I have since bought it to add to my collection as it is probably the best book he has written since the classics Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls!!
From the first word to the last it is literally non-stop action and thrills that had me glued to the page as it was just so exciting and suspenseful, with so many twists that you'd never seen coming and probably the best killer in a Patterson book since Gary Sonjei. Bennett is a fantastic new character that I think with a few more books behind him could turn out to actually be as good as Cross, which I feel has been dragged out a little too long now, to be honest.
Overall whether you're a fan of Patterson books or not, you simply have to read this book! It's without a doubt one of the best thrillers I've read for a long time and is definitely Patterson's best in years. Highly recommended if you need your faith in James Patterson being a top writer to be restored.
This is a lightweight thriller where we have a detective caricature (widowed, kids, weary but dedicated etc etc) against a clever psycho who is on a killing spree. Easy and effortless reading that you will forget within five minutes of the final page with very little to lift it from the below average. Some relentless and irritating product placement also detracted from any potential enjoyment but it would have taken a lot to make this anything like an enjoyable thriller.
One to avoid. And shame on you Patterson for selling out your name association.
The book is full of suspense and action however I did find it a bit predictable toward the end. I enjoyed the book and can't wait to read the next one.
