At the San Francisio Muncipal Hospital, people have been receiving the wrong medication which induces a heart attack. The latest victim to this string of "accidents" is Yuki Castellano's mother Keiko, who suddenly collapses. After she's taken to the medical hospital, she's given the wrong medication and suddenly dies. Just like several others. Lindsay Boxer decides it's time to investigate. It's been happening too much to be just an accident.
It isn't such a bad book. For the most part, it'll keep you on the edge of your seat. If you like fast-paced movie-like books, The 5th Horseman is perfect. It instantly grabs your attention and takes you away.
Again, however, this book is plagued by what just about every James Patterson book is plagued with these days. Where's the meat? The substance? There's a lot of plot, but what about characters and steady pace? The book, like many of his previous books, moves much faster than it has to. And because it moves so fast, there's little time to feel for these characters.
Look at it like this, Yuki Castellano was introduced in 4th of July, the previous book (which was much better than this one). We learned very little about her. Here, her mother is introduced right after the prologue.Read more ›
James Patterson should stop lending his name to books by every mystery writer that asks. I will no longer buy these books. His name only adds to the price - and they are expensive. If you want to read something by the co-author, find something where the co-author's name is the only one on the cover. Books co-authored with Patterson have come to mean poorly written and very expensive.
The story about the doctor and the lawyer was interesting but which one the two writers came up with such a lame ending. After they had wrapped up the case with the two aforementioned characters, they probably found out they forgot about letting the reader know who the person was doing the killing and gave us some crappy ending in an attempt to let us know whoduit without ever really giving us a reason why. I had to go back and reread the chapters about this person to try and get a clue. How did this person get out of jail so quickly and move on to another hospital? And how did Lindsay Boxer know she would be there? Too many holes that needed to be filled in. I expected more. Next book I just wait until I can borrow it from someone else or wait until the paperback version comes out and get it at a discount store.
