Another "light" quick read from James Patterson
10th Anniversary - Maxine Paetro,James Patterson

Another "light" quick read from James Patterson, this novel centers around three cases, a missing baby, rapes and a murder. All the ladies of the Murder Club are involved and it's a satisfying read. The characters are reasonably well developed but it is interesting that nearly everybody is good-looking, well-dressed and intelligent. My usual gripe: who cares about the street directions that people drive through which may only mean anything to local residents, in this case, of San Francisco. A good book to read in between more serious stuff.

Alex Cross detective novel - OK but also disappointing
The Big Bad Wolf - James Patterson

 

 

Now with the FBI, Alex Cross gets involved in a case about kidnappings and murders while also dealing with a family crisis. Although the plot unravels well over 300 pages, it’s one of Patterson’s books where all is not resolved at the end, something which I find disappointing and unfair to the reader. I read these occasionally for a fast entertaining read but this was not as enjoyable as it could be.

About 100 pages too long
The President is Missing - Bill Clinton,James Patterson
THE PRESIDENT IS MISSING by James Patterson and Bill Clinton
 
Patterson would have done well to use former President Bill Clinton only as a resource and kept him away from the actual writing. This book is about 100 pages too long.
 
Terrorists are planning an attack on the United States and the president is a prime target. The plot is interesting and well plotted. The writing can be very verbose with little addition to the storyline. That said, I enjoyed the book and I skimmed parts of it with no impact on my enjoyment or the story.
 
3 of 5 stars

KILLER CHEF by James Patterson and Jeffrey J. Keyes
Killer Chef (BookShots) - James Patterson,Jeffrey J. Keyes

Diners are dying at upscale restaurants and Caleb, a chef and a cop, is called in to solve the murders.  I enjoyed this book.  I did not figure out who the killer was.  I liked Caleb and Marlene, his ex-wife and current business partner.  I liked their bantering.  I could tell they were comfortable together.  Just a short book to read in a couple hours.

CHASE by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge
Chase - James Patterson,Michael Ledwidge Chase - James Patterson,Michael Ledwidge
Detective Bennett has a jumper but as different facts come to light he wonders if it was suicide or murder.
 
I have never read the Michael Bennett series but I had no problem following the action and personalities of this story.  The action moves fast as the book is a little over a hundred pages.  I would like to say I'm shocked but the bad guys but I'm not.  It is a shame that the bad guys are who they are.  I also hated the attitudes of some of the other characters.  I liked Mike Bennett and Joe Walke--two heroes.  Too bad others were not as heroic.
 
This is part of James Patterson's Bookshots line.  I like this line--short reads done within a couple of hours.  I'll be reading more of this line.
