"I can't believe how good Patterson is, whether he's doing a Washington police yarn or traveling a different road with a female narrator. He is always on the mark. I have never begun a Patterson book and been able to put it down."―Larry King, USA Today

I don't remember much about book 12, but as for book 13, I feel like James Patterson is writing less and less of his books. The style was confusing - parts were third person, parts were first. It just makes it somewhat hard to read. Also, procedurally, some parts were just epicly wrong.
There were also too many stories going on in this one. I think maybe the book wasn't "long" enough so they added in the story of Brady and Yuki's honeymoon which, although intriguing, seemed misplaced.
I'll keep reading though, mostly because I want to find out what happens with Cindy.
In this book, Yuki and her fiance finally take the plunge and get married in a very hurried ceremony that is beautiful. I could imagine Yuki in her beautiful wedding gown and holding a lovely bouquet. She and her new husband were then off to a wonderful honeymoon on an Alaskan cruise ship and they couldn't wait to get away.
In the meantime, Lindsay is horrified by what is happening to people in the San Francisco area. Somehow people are ingesting small bombs in hamburgers from a chain of fast food restaurants and are literally blowing up in front of horrified bystanders. The police at first have no clue as to how the perpetrators are doing this, who they are and why they are doing this to innocent people.Claire does the autopsies and finds that is what is causing people to actually explode.
In the meantime, Cindy has run across a dangerous and old nemisis who she wants to interview for the "interview and story of her life" for her newspaper job but it is a dangerous undertaking that Cindy doesn't tell the others about .
The book is full of suspense, but the ending leaves a bit to be desired. I think it might be because...I hope!...it picks up in the next book, the 14th in the series.
The wedding and honeymoon of the attorney in the group, and the cruiseline ship their on gets hijacked, and the return of a pyscho bent on killing the detective of the group makes for compelling reading.
The journalist becomes the heroine in a the twist at the end of the book.
The author spins a delicate trail throughout the book of the three stories. The reader doesn't know what to expect when they put the book and return again.
An exciting book to read that can be read by itself or as a continuence in the series

I think Mr Patterson et al need to concentrate more on quality rather than quantity in the future.
In addition to this, we see Yuki (2nd of the 4 WMC) get married to Brady (who also happens to be Lindsay’s boss). As they go off on their honeymoon, it appears that another thread to the story emerges with an attack on their Cruise ship. If that wasn’t enough then the return of Mackie Morales is the thread to complete the lot. Mackie was an ex-colleague of Lindsay’s who turned out to be a ruthless killer. She is now back and looking for her revenge. It seems that while Mackie is back, Cindy (the 3rd in the 4 of the WMC) is chasing her right back to give her, hopefully, the biggest story of her career in journalism. It appears that Clare (the 4th of the WMC) didn’t want to make much of an appearance.
The writing style is the usual short and sharp affair, which always maintains my interest. Although there are three threads to the story the downside was that it at times appeared a little disjointed. That aside, I thought it was pretty pacey and the reintroduction of Mackie Morales made for a pretty exciting story too. I think the series is a far cry from being where it was in the early days, however this latest book I think is a big improvement on some of the others.
