James Patterson | Fiction
James Patterson has written 147 novels. He has had 114 New York Times bestselling novels, and holds The New York Times record for most #1 New York Times bestsellers by a single author, a total of 67. Wow. Amazing.
The 15th Affair is the fifteenth book in the Women’s Murder Club series co-written with Maxine Paetro. In this novel, Lindsay Boxer, the San Francisco police detective and main character, encounters a four-person murder in a downtown luxury hotel; an explosion that rocks the city, the country and the world; and a husband who goes missing. The Women’s Murder Club has four members, and Lindsay uses her esteemed female colleagues to help her solve these mysteries.
Patterson's writing is intriguing and suspenseful. While this is not a book to read for your dissertation research (unless you happen to be working on a Doctorate in Mystery Literature and are studying Patterson!), it is good, solid, interesting, edge-of-your-seat mystery. I liked it enough that I just requested from the library the first book in the Women’s Murder Club series, 1st to Die.
