More About the Author

It is no surprise that in January, 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having "transformed book publishing," and that Time magazine hailed him as "The Man Who Can't Miss." Recently, NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams profiled Patterson's prolific career, AARP named him one of the "50 Most Influential People Who Make Our Days a Little Brighter," and Variety featured him in a cover story highlighting his adventures in Hollywood.

In 2013, it was estimated that one-in-five of all hardcover suspense/thriller novels sold was written by James Patterson, his books have sold over 300 million copies worldwide, and he holds the Guinness record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. And his success isn't based solely on thrillers like the perennially popular Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Michael Bennett series. Patterson is now also the current bestselling author in the young adult and middle grade categories.

He's been called the busiest man in publishing, and that's not just because of his own books. For the past decade, James has been devoting more and more of his time to championing books and reading. From the James Patterson Pageturner Awards, to his website ReadKiddoRead.com, to his College Book Bucks scholarships and his regular donations of hundreds of thousands of books to schools here in the states and troops overseas (see interviews on Fox & Friends, The Dennis Miller Radio Show and CNN.com), Patterson has passed on his passion of books and reading and supported those who do the same. Jim personally funded a major ad campaign re-printing a recent opinion piece on CNN.com about how it is our responsibility to get our kids reading. The ad has run in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and USA Today. Those ads are a call to action to parents to make their kids reading a top priority; and were featured by USA Today here. Patterson believes that we cannot rely on schools, teachers or the government to get our kids reading; only parents can make this crucial change in the reading habits of our kids. Here are links to some interviews on his first-ever dual lay down (two books, one for parents and one for kids, in one day): AOL's You've Got, NBC's "Today Show" with Hoda and Kathie Lee, USA Today and Family Circle, NBC's "Today Show" with Al Roker, as well as an interview with AARP.

I couldn't put the book down until I finished reading it.
Kenneth A. Deitcher
The only complaint I could have about The 6th Target is that it might contain a little too much of a good thing.
Jennifer Sicurella
James Patterson did a great job writing this next book in the Women's Murder Club series.

I have my doubts. . . Did James Patterson really write this or did Maxine Paetro? James Patterson writes page turning thrillers that keep you hanging onto the edge of your chair. This book is more of a sad romance with little action and mixed plot lines. James Patterson is capable of much better. The Women's Murder Club doesn't even solve anything in this would-be whodunnit. If your looking for a good read, don't look here.

I'd have to agree that this installment of the Women's Murder Club was very disappointing. I love JP, but I'm not really a WMC fan. I really do not like Boxer at all. The ME is terrific though - she should get her own series. But this sixth installment is terribly bland, boring, and scattered.It started out with a bang (literally!), but died 10 pages later. And was never resurrected. Especially there was no "club". The other girls were more or less a sideline and had no real part. It was really boring.

This book reads as if it were writtem by a committee of people who have never met. There are three crime story lines going on at once and one about the lack of romance. To tell you the truth, I didn't care what would happen in anyone on the "plots", and all I am doing now is wondering why I wasted my time reading this book at all. Thank God I did not pay for it.
There are so many good books out there. Don't waste your time on this one.

I have read each and every word that James Patterson has ever published or colloborated on.

While the book reads fast and engagingly, I was left with the basic question - WHAT WAS THE POINT OF ALL THIS????

It's Woman's Murder Club, and there are three different sets of murders, but these women never collaborate on their solutions. What a club.

The different murders have nothing to do with one another - the only time they intersect is by coincidence or in conversation.

I was left with a clear sense that Patterson/Paetro had three small stories, none of which they felt they could grow into a gripping tale.

Format: Hardcover
I have purchased and read all of this series and I must say this one is a real disappointment. The book comes across as something he wrote ten minutes before the publishing date. The plot line was very thin at best, no drama, character development, real mystery. I expected more for $24. I won't buy another in this series. I've been sad with the last few books in the Alex Cross series, the thrill is gone!

I have read most of James Patterson's books, and all of the Women's Murder Club series and I can honestly say that this book was disappointing for me. While Patterson stayed true to his characters, he did too much with the plot. Most of the main events in the book had nothing to do with each other making the storyline very choppy and almost annoying at times. Not a horrible book, though not worthy of a thumbs up either.

Not worth your time. I have read every book he has written and it seems they are more and more predictable. I keep hoping he will write something more exciting, or mind boggling, but no such luck. Read it you have nothing else to read.

Format: Hardcover
This book just didn't get it done for me. It's obvious which chapters Patterson wrote and which the co-author wrote. The plot was good but he failed to build enough suspense to make the book interesting. Patterson's latest books just aren't up the his former standards. Alex Cross stories are some of the best mystery novels I've read but of late it seems that Patterson is more interested in getting a book published every 3 months than he is in writing quality suspense novels. Too bad. I'll take quality over quantity any day. Bring on Koontz, Coban and Stanford.
