I love James Patterson's writing. He has that fast-pacing style that I just
love and I like that he always manages to bring out the suspense, the thrill,
the excitement, the mysteries, the romance, and the action. His novels are some of the best I have ever
read. Certain novel series of his like
Alex Cross and Michael Bennett have captured my attention and never once let
go. Even some of his stand-alone novels
like Kill Me If You Can, Honeymoon and Sundays at Tiffany's all have their
impact on me. But, just recently, I
found another book series of Patterson's.
A certain mystery/detective/thrilling series called, The Women's Murder
Club, and I just got done reading the first installment, 1st To Die.
To start off the review, let’s take a look at what the story
is about. The story is about a woman
named Lindsay Boxer, an Inspector, who is assigned to a murder case of the
killing of a newly-wed couple. She teams
up with three other women, Claire, Cindy and Jill, to form the Women's Murder
Club to help catch the killer. She even
partner's up with a man from the Mayor's office named Chris Raleigh.
I really love how Patterson brings in some of the elements
that have made some of his other books so good, especially from Alex
Cross. His attention to keeping the
story fast-paced, while also managing to throw in some character development,
really does fascinate me. Now, of
course, there are some authors out there who can do better, but still, you have
to admit that the guy has talent and does very a very good job at it. I've written a book once, and it wasn't an
easy task. I like how he goes into how
the murder goes down, while also learning about the victims before they are
killed, which allows us to feel for them.
We even get into the killer's head as well, which allows us to feel
connected with everything that is going on.
