James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than
any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records.
Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's
books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of
the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of
the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and
Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in
Florida with his family.
"Chapter endings are suspenseful cliffhangers and urge even the
most tentative reader to keep reading! We can expect more from this
dynamic sibling team in the future."--San Francisco Book
"Dialogue-heavy and action-packed, the writing throughout is inventive and colorfully detailed. Written in a conversational tone by Patterson and co-author Ned Rust, it's as if the reader's craziest best friend was recounting a wildly apocryphal tale, and doing so for about four hours, which is about how long it takes to read the book. It's easy to visualize the story, which may explain why movie rights to this series have already been snatched up."--LA Times
