I picked up the audio book read by Richard Ferrone at a yard sale, but the description of the book makes it sound more like a creepy suspense thriller than a mystery. I'm more a Janet Evonovich Mystery reader than James Patterson and my question is, do I just give the tape away, or dare begin?
Helga Voller Richard Ferrone has a great voice and John Sandford writes better than Patterson, and does not write creepy novels. His detective Lucas Davenport is worth getting to know!!
Marcia Chocinsky I enjoy Sanfords novels- well written, good plots, fully developed characters with flaws, etc. Some of Pattersons are just okay (Woman's murder club I think it's called) and I dislike most of his others. I read one evanovich book and doubt I will read another - I can't remember the reasons. So, perhaps since you like JE you will not like Sanford. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all
