Praise for Patterson
This is a truly mesmerizing book, and James Patterson is an astounding author. The only reason I am giving this book 4 stars is because of the creative, yet some what disturbing ways in which he chooses to have the victims in this book killed. You still have to read this book because once you start you will never want to put it down.
I absolutely loved this book. It is very well written and very well read. IT will drive you crazy though and keeps you guessing. It will force you to buy the second book ( Violets are blue) which i am doing right now. Enjoy!
I love it, so much that i got the next one Violet are Blue.
