About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
I just wish Patterson would do himself a favour and stop putting his name on any book thrown at him as his reputation is going to be dragged through the mud even more with books like this one. This is the last time that I get excited about one of his novels and pre-order it so I get it on day of release and I'll read a few other customer reviews before purchasing in future as this was a real waste of time and money.
Since ghost writers and assistant writers have written novels signed Patterson,
the quality of the story has deteriorated.
This last novel is by far the worst I have read.
The quickness of the chapters one used to feel, the incredible desire to want to read the next chapter is no longer there.
