Found this to be a cut above the usual James Patterson novel. For that matter a couple of his recent books felt more like his early ones that got me hooked on him, and this being one of them. It has been years since I was at the point of being absorbed in one of his stories that I didn’t want to put the book down. However, it got late (far too late at night) so I did practice common sense. To me when a story captures you like that it has a meaning. This is co-authored with Howard Roughan so it could be the new blood that brings back to life Patterson’s stories.

Basically this is a story about the search for a very sophisticated clever serial killer on a vigilante spree in New York City. The killer is meting out justice to those obviously guilty that escaped justice under the law, due quirks in the law. The search and investigation is an interesting chess match between a very surprising college professor working with a well connected police detective and the killer who is leaving hints about his next victim at the crime scenes.

Like I said believe this is one of James Patterson’s best recent works and anyone who enjoys a good story and does need overwhelming character development or, simply enjoys Patterson as a hidden pleasure will enjoy this latest adventure.
