We often joke at work that each month there is a new James Patterson to enjoy, and with all the co-authored books he has written in the past few years it almost does seem like there is a new James Patterson and co every other month. Some of the books are hits, some are misses - and this is definitely one of the hits. The writing partnership of Patterson and Karp has created a dynamic read that keeps you turning the pages to see what happens next - it was easy to get lost in the story, and get dragged into the world of Bannon and those around him. The attention to detail is there is the little subtle details, but the story isn't bogged down in detail, or weighed down with too much detail. And the wonderful little twists and turns are fantastic when you stumble across them and make the book that much better.
Patterson and Karp definitely have a winner with this book, and there appears to be hints that there could be more in the series (don't worry - no spoilers here). I really hope there are more books to come as this is a dynamic writing duo who keep you on the edge of your seat with anticipation to see what comes next, and to see what action is coming up next.
