And in my humble opinion, Patterson is writing far too much mediocre stuff that people gobble up because of his name.
Half of what he's publlishing, sometimes three, four, or five times in one month, are clearly being ghost written and not very well.
Stop while you're ahead already; I for one will not be quick to order any more Patterson books for a good, long while!
First, the premise is identical to the "Brit in the FBI" series (jd robb?). Idependently wealthy, rule bending foreign cop meets American law enforcement. Unfortunately, this version's just not as well done. I especially found the choices of "voice" awkward- Luc's first person narration was awkward. Handling of his partner's actions even more so- "K. Burke crosses the room..." Use of present tense made it feel like stage directions from a play.
But agsin I don't fault the format and I think BookShots are a great option for a satisfying reading experience.
Two women were killed, then two women who were close to Moncrief, but it turns out the first two killing were to throw Moncrief off the trail. WHY? there was no trail, surely you would kill a target then a fake to throw police off the scent.
Moncrief goes to Paris to find out who the killer is by reading his old arrest reports, Why not just get them faxed/e-mailed over to New York?
I could go on, but what is the point. This Bookshot is not great, the characters are fleshed out enough, but the plot stinks.
