"Twenty years ago, I wrote, '"Along Came a Spider" is the best thriller I've come across in many a year. It deserves to be this season's #1 bestseller and should instantly make James Patterson a household name.' A household name, indeed." "Nelson DeMille""
"It's no mystery why James Patterson is the world's most popular thriller writer: his uncanny skill in creating living, breathing characters we truly feel for and seamless, lightning-fast plots. I do this for a living, and he still manages to keep me guessing from the first to last page. Simply put: Nobody does it better." "Jeffery Deaver""
"James Patterson is The Boss. End of." "Ian Rankin""
