This review is from: Now You See Her (Kindle Edition)
I'm a fan of the James Patterson Alex Cross series so I'm deeply perplexed by this plot, writing style, and story telling. The main charecter is supposed to be a woman who is a tough survivalist, escaping a toxic and dangerous relationship. However when simply questioned or challenged by a situation she pulls the lower lip, uses her sexuality or simply runs. Frankly, it feels manipulating and I'm not sure why the author feels he has to write women in this way.
The plot is to say the least, silly. It's not even worth spoiling to explain how silly, just trust that there is zero base in reality. There is nothing the reader can relate to here. The charecters throughout are supposed to be slick, some are multiple serial killers, and they read like bumbleing sterotypes. Why bother?
I'm saddened by this constant fast food literary habit. Even for a good quick read , it's not at all good. James Patterson is doing his craft a disservice regardless of the payday. These colaberations are really like shooting a fish in a barrel, lots of floaters, no challenge.
I've given it it 1 star only for the effort the author made by sitting down and typing it out.

I love James Patterson's books and recently have been very disappointed in the ones that I've bought! As some of the readers suggest a lot of them are boring and stupid. So, thanks to the comments I will not purchase this book.
