Now with the new authors writing his books, the reader doesn't know what to expect. But surely not this. A slow-moving plot with ...more

The same is true with this one. I'm not being sarcastic, I honestly believe that James Patterson is one of the greatest authors of our time. Will he go down in history alongside another notable author Shakespe ...more
