Can you say, "Over the top?" This one sure is......the villain is just a bit too nasty, and frankly, there are just a few too many twists and turns in this one. Patterson is usually pretty good, but this one doesn't do it for me.
I loved loved loved this book. It was heart pumping and action packed. THE WHOLE THING RIGHT TO THE END! I couldn't have read a more better book, well other than Pop Goes the Weasel. This book London Bridges was great it was a mix of Pop Goes the Weasel and Big Bad Wolf all in one! Of course I don't want to say too much to ruin your readings of other books up to this point. Just put it this way. I loved this book, it is a must read in my opinion. If you don't read all in the series read this one. I love adventure and the hunt for bad guys. I read Hannibal years back and it was a hunt for him, just like in this one. This book would be a FANTASTIC MOVIE!
