2nd Chance by James Patterson



2nd Chance by James Patterson

Synopsis A brutal madman sprays bullets into a crowd of children leaving a San Francisco church. Miraculously-or was it intentionally?-only one person dies. Then an elderly black woman is hung. Police homicide inspector Lindsay Boxer senses a connection and together with medical examiner Claire, assistant D. A. Jill, and Chronicle reporter Cindy, finds a link that sends a chill through the entire nation. This killer's motives are unspeakable.

Thoughts The book snob in me would have never thought of reading something by James Patterson but then I read two of his books last year and enjoyed both of them immensely. One of them was part of the Women's Murder Club series. It's of course another crazy killer and impossible case but with Lt. Lindesy Boxer as the main protagonist partnered with three other fiercely strong, independent and brilliant women it makes it a great girl power kinda read which is a huge plus. Also you don't expect to be getting all teary eyed while ready about grisly murders but this one had been welling up on the second page and then again 3/4th in. I'm definitely going to continue reading the other books in this series.

Patterson was one of my late sister's favorite authors, but I've never gotten around to any of his novels. I should someday because they always sound so good.

Wow this is dark. But in these times it is not surprising. I have not read anything by him, right now I am reading a book on the French Revolution.

I know what you mean -- I often find myself avoiding the most popular/published authors because of all the hype, but sometimes they're SO worth it! Sounds like a great read that I'll have to check out.

I've only read one book by James Patterson and he really does know how to craft those compelling page turners. This one sounds dark but riveting.

I might need to pick this one up as a beach read!

Hmmm...sounds like a dark read here. Books like this have a terrible effect on me so I tend to stay away from em.

Oh, I need to continue this series! This is just about the only one (and maybe Rowling's Cormoran series) mystery series that keeps my attention. I haven't been impressed by any other modern mysteries.
