APPLAUSE FOR JAMES PATTERSON
"The Man Who Can't Miss"--Lev Grossman, Time
"Patterson boils a scene down to the single, telling detail, the element that defines a character or moves the plot along. It's what fires off the movie projector in the reader's mind."--Michael Connelly
"Patterson's novels are sleek entertainment machines, the Porsches of commercial fiction, expertly engineered and lightning fast."--Publishers Weekly
