Dead Drop by Jack    Patterson
"This is a great book.
I loved the characters. It pulled me in from the very beginning. Its a great mystery story and keeps you guessing who the bad guys are threw out the book. Its not an easy book to figure out way before its all revealed. "
Dead Line by Jack    Patterson
"Decent story. The Superbowl is here. Two unlikely teams are readying for the big day. But the fix is in. Or is it? Cal Murphy, sports writer in Seattle, is in the thick of it. Well worth the time. 5 stars."

Jack Patterson, Cross Hairs
