Heist is part of the Bookshots series and because it is such a compact story it is really challenging to review it without any spoilers! James Patterson has a knack for writing action packed stories that are driven by action and characters, and when he finds the wright co-author it is like magic. Of all the partnerships he has had I have always liked his collaborations with Michael Ledwidge best as they have a really seamless style and great writing chemistry - and I feel the same way about the writing chemistry between Patterson and Rees Jones. They are yet to write a full length novel together, but the Bookshots with Patterson and Jones working together are my favourite so far!
Bookshots have a wide variety of books in the series - some tie in with other full novel series, while others are stand alone novellas. Heist is a stand alone novella which means you can dive in with no background and enjoy with no strings attached! Here's hoping there are many more Patterson and Jones collaborations to come as they have a great writing chemistry with strong characters and fast paced action filled scenes.
