I love James Patterson, and this book did not disappoint. I hope he finds time to add another books to this series as with the Alex Cross stories. I was also VERY impressed with the reader of this book, but sadly disappointed with the reader of the 2nd. Too bad the 2nd was not read by Carolyn McCormick! I can't wait for more of this series!
As always, John Grisham delivers more than the story. We learn about small town Mississippi in marvelous detail as the story unfolds. I found it rather anticlimactic, however. Throughout, I was waiting for something suspenseful to occur, but it didn't. It was a nice story, told well and read exceptionally well by Michael Beck. The technical plots and sub-plots were missing in this one, which took me by surpise.
I listened to this story just before Christmas, so it was actually timely. However, I was not impressed with the story line. It was a gross departure from James Patterson's other work. Totally implausible and I finished it only out of curiosity...it did not get better, just worse. I hope that I do not waste my time on anything else so strange and farfetched.
