    In the latest from the best selling author of Kiss the Girls and When the Wind Blows, Alex Cross is on the trail of a brilliant criminal known only as the Mastermind. Browse more Patterson.

    This was my first James Patterson book unaware of the order. I found it bonding. I couldn't put it down. Right from the beggining the story was so captivating. I have since read almost all of his books and I am still quite fond of this one among others. Highly recommended.

    In a departure from the legal thriller genre, John Grisham's latest novel draws inspiration from his own rural childhood in Arkansas. Listen and enjoy this moving tale about a 7-year-old boy and the dose of reality that comes, one autumn during the harvest, to take away his innocence. Also available abridged.

    Janelle Carter says: "Bittersweet way of life of time past...."
    "Unbelievable"
    Overall

    Now this was grisham at his worst. Definitely not his cup of tea. Unbelievably unrealistic and boring.

    Best selling author John Grisham (A Time to Kill, The Brethren) returns with a new tale for modern times, offering a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become a part of our holiday tradition.

    "A different kind of X-mas"
    Overall

    Captivating right form the beginning. A look at X-mas from the outside. A little fun, imagination and ofcourse a little magic makes for one excellent read. Shows how versatile John Grisham really is. Loved it.

    This book was grisham at his best. Very captivating approach to the legal system. Ofcourse I think the ending could have been a lot different. However I definitely recommend it.

    In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

    Overall

    Not the grisham of yesterday however very entertaining. It was a very interesting book. I could recommend it for many reasons but I don't want to get into the essence of the story.

    High school all-American Neely Crenshaw was the best quarterback to play for the Messina Spartans. 15 years have gone by since those glory days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into a football dynasty. Now, as Coach Rake's "boys" sit in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to signal his passing, they replay the old games, relive the old glories, and try to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake – or hate him.

    Alex Cross' first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks like a shadowy figure known as the Wolf, a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime, is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves.

    Ed says: "Alex Cross returns"
    "Captivating"
    Overall

    Patterson is definitely leaving room for the sequel. That's all I can say besides the fact that it was interesting.

    Six children have escaped government experiments, and a frightening brush with death. Living out in the world for the first time, they yearn to be reunited with Kit and Frannie, the couple who saved their lives, and to return to the cabin known as the Lake House. But before they can get there, they will face a horrifying evil, for one man has survived the laboratory that bred the flying children, and he is obsessed with reclaiming them for a new round of experiments - with an even more deadly outcome.

    Shannon says: "The Lake House, by James Patterson"

    Overall

    Okay, it wasn't one of his top ten. It was a fantasy type book that touched on human feelings. It was creative and more on the lines of a supernatural book. It kept my interest to the end.

    Overall

    This was the first jackie collins book I read. It really peaked my interset. So I have since read 2 more of her books and I'm not finished yet. Lethal seduction was educating as well as intriguing. I really can't give away any of the content because it was mystifying. All I can say is it was a very interesting read.
