This is another book in the Women's Murder Club series. As usual, there are many twists and turns in this suspenseful thriller. Lindsay Boxer is investigating two different cases. One of them is about two young men who like to burn the houses of rich couples while they are in the house. The other storyline is about the famous and well liked son of an ex governor who has disappeared several months ago. Someone confesses to murdering him, but later recants. Although the two storylines do come together, it seems rather forced. Overall, this book is still worth reading.
Alex Cross' wife is shot by a serial murderer/rapist, but is never caught. 10 years later, he has another chance to catch the murderer. As usual, this Patterson book is a suspenseful thriller, but does not have as many twists and turns as expected.
This is an exciting fast paced book. The title refers to the fact that burglars have two minutes to get in and out of a bank before the police arrive. If they take longer than this, they have a greater chance of getting caught. An ex con who just gets out of jail finds out that his son was killed the night before he is released. There is also some controversy about dirty cops who are stealing money. Overall, this is a suspenseful thriller which is pretty quick to read.
This book has its humorous parts, but is also on the weird side. The author tells the story of his childhood and his dysfunctional family, which leads to many funny stories.
This is a pretty interesting book about a burglar/bookseller who also happens to solve mysteries. He goes away on a weekend getaway in order to steal a book but gets caught up in a scandal and must solve a murder when the guests are all snowed in.
