Patterson's murderers are twisted beyond belief, his detective is a
tad unbelievable, and the murders themselves are sick, sick,
But JACK AND JILL is still a thrilling, page-gripping read. I
started it at work, read it walking to the subway, on the train and
while waiting for my friends to show up for dinner. It burned a
hole in my bag through dinner, until I was able to tear it open
again at home --- reading into the wee hours of the night.
Yes, Patterson's bad guys in KISS THE GIRLS and ALONG CAME A SPIDER
are far from nice, but JACK AND JILL is over the top.
