Private No. 1 Suspect by James Patterson 

If you like fast paced and full throttle action then you will love James Patterson. His novels are a fantastic and gripping way to pass the time.

This story is part of the Private series that Patterson writes and I have to say that if you were going to read these I would start at the beginning of the series. Each book has it’s own plot but the characters and their history is the same throughout the series.

In this book Jack, the owner of Private is prime suspect in the murder of his ex girlfriend. Especially as she is found murdered in his bed! Each of the team have other cases that are taking up valuable time but can they help Jack prove his innocence before they all reach breaking point? 

As I said before these books are great time fillers and the pages just seem to turn themselves. If you are a fan of crime fiction then I must recommended the great James Patterson.

The Quickie by James Patterson 

This book for me is the definition of a quick read, it was so page turning that I just ate up the pages without noticing. The book has you gripped from the start and is so full of questions as to what would I do in that situation, makes it even more of a compelling read.

Homicide dectective Lauren Stillwell has found her husband cheating on her and decides to get back at him by sleeping with another detective. After her one night stand Lauren witnesses him being murdered outside his own house, she knows who the killer is but will she turn them in or destroy everything to cover the truth?

The murderer has no idea he has been seen, and Lauren knows she wasn’t spotted so a terrible game of cat and mouse ensues but just who is chasing who? 

A great read, certainly got my reading brain all fired up. Thats the main reason I adore Patterson, great reads everytime.

NYPD Red 2 by James Patterson 

I love Patterson books as they are easy to read, fast paced and give you characters you love.

NYPD Red 2 is no different as it has the same team of elite cops as it did in the first book. I  woul say as well to try and read these books in order as they contain references to the first book which would make no sense otherwise.

Can Zach and Kylie figure out who is the Hazmat killer before they kill yet another peorson. Life is made harder for the two cops as it seems these vigilantes have a lot of support out there and they also seem to know their every move.

The reader goes through the book knowing who the killers are and why they started on their vengful journey but it takes a while to finally figure out who they are in the later story as it keeps their names well buried until the end.

Great read for all lovers of crime.

Lifeguard by James Patterson 

I adore James Patterson books because they are easy to read and they pick up pace quite quickly, making them food holiday reads.

Lifeguard is a great book about criminals being double crossed during the robbery of their careers. Trying to figure out why people have been murdered because of this robbery Ned Kelly finds himself the only suspect in the case! 

He needs to prove to everyone that yes he was part of the robbery but he is no killer and that he didn’t actually rob anyone as the items they had gone to get had already been stolen! 

Who can he trust as the more he gets into the crime the more he thinks the police are involved too, so the only one he decides to trust is FBI agent Ellie. Will she believe his story or will Ned go to prison for cimes he didn’t commit?! 

A good easy read for lovers of crime everywhere.

Cross by James Patterson

Just cannot get enough of the Dragon Slayer that is Alex Cross at the moment, and Cross is a fantastic read.
For those who have read the Cross books from the start this will be an emotionally tense book for you, throughout Cross the reader learns more than ever about the murder of Alex’s wife Maria and how he never managed to catch the killer!
Now Sampson, Alex’s best friend has a case that is so similar to the events surrounding Maria’s death that they might just be the same perpetrator. Sending Alex into a tail spin of wanting justice and revenge for the love of his live can he and Sampson team up like old times and finally close the case?
A great read from start to finish, praise as usual for James Patterson.

Mary Mary by James Patterson

I hadn’t quite got my fill of dragon slayer Alex Cross yet so I moved on to the next in the series, Mary Mary and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed at all.
This was a great read even better than the previous book London Bridges.
Alex Cross is called in to investigate the cold blooded murder of several A – list celebrities out in LA. While there seems to be no obvious motive behind the murders a reporter at the LA Times finds himself being sent emails from ‘Mary’ addressed to the person that has just been murdered. Using these as a starting point Cross hopes to untangle this mystery before anyone else gets killed.
With police cooperation in meltdown and issues at home can Cross still bring his A game to the table and find the killer?
Well you will just have to read the book and find out.

London Bridges by James Patterson

image

When I am in need of a hero fix and an easy but thrilling read there is no one better to turn to than James Patterson and the infamous Alex Cross.
London Bridges is the 10th novel in the Alex Cross series and it also sees the return of previous bad guys. While thrilling and captivating, the book isn’t complex and is a proper get down to it good versus bad thriller.
I always feel bad for Cross as he goes through some hard times, is unlucky in love and has the worse cases imaginable. He also has the best family to fall back on what with nana mama and the kids, I think i miss nana as much as cross if I stay away from the seires for too long.
Cross is on a much needed vacation when he gets the call that a town have been completely vaporised and a man named Wolf is taking the credit.
The Wolf says he intends to do it again if his demands are not met, but who is the Wolf and why does no one know what he looks like?
Alex Cross must figure all this out and find a way to catch him before more people are killed in horrific explosions across the world, not to mention Cross thinks the Wolf has an inside man!
Great book for crime lovers, easy to grasp a good relaxing read.
