Triple Homicide by James Patterson Review
For any James Patterson fan, this was a fast, fun read. The characters are all well-hones favorites. You already know them. So it's the story that you focus on, and these were fun.
Detective Cross--what is there to really say? He is, in my opinion, one of Patterson's best. The difference here is that the story is peppered with subtle and not so subtle messages about the state of how US veterans are treated, or not treated. So it isn't really a story about Cross per se. Truly has a twist at the end that I did not see coming, so worth the build.
Women's Murder Club--I have only read two other books with these characters, so I did struggle to keep who is with who, who works with who, straight. Patterson and his co-author take the time to lay it out for the un-initiated, but it still takes some effort. I don't want to spoil anything, but this was really an unexpected story line. But a really good one! It was wrapped up well at the end, but I also feel it may be the start of a new direction.
Michael Bennett--This story started off fast and just got faster. As with Detective Cross, there were some subtle and not so subtle messages mixed in with a really good story. Hard to write much without giving the ending away, but as with most Patterson stories involving Michael Bennett, all is not as it seems.
Overall, I find this author (and his co-author) books read very fast due to short chapters, and "Triple Homicide" is no exception. Add to that favorite characters and good stories, and you have yet another winner! Really worth a look!
