I had stopped reading James Patterson, not that his books aren't good, but because I felt like they were way too short and he could have developed his books a lot more. I accidentally ordered Alex Cross's Trial through my book club. I must admit even though this book is not about Alex Cross it is a very good book. The subject matter is disturbing and goes into detail on lynchings and the Klan in Mississippi before the turn of the turn of the 20th century.
The Dresden Files just keeps getting better and better. I thought Jim Butcher had out done himself with Death Masks, but Blood Rites is just as good if not better. Harry learns more about his mother and gets to battle vampires again! Great book!
Michael Connelly is probably one of my favorite writers and Harry Bosch one of my favorite detectives. It was a pleasant surprise to find him involved in this book. I was not disappointed with The Brass Verdict, great story as usual.
