I came upon James Patterson in an unlikely way. I read Sundays at Tiffany's. I loved Sundays at Tiffany's, but found out that was not typical James Patterson. I don't usually like mystery and suspense, but after reading Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, also not typical Patterson, I was persuaded to look at some of Patterson's suspense books. I read and enjoyed Sail, although I thought it was a slightly odd story, but it was interesting and entertaining. So, I picked up some Patterson novels at the library book sale and used book stores this summer.
When the Wind Blows was very impressive! Frannie O'Neill is a Colorado veterinarian dealing with the recent death of her husband, a local doctor. Kit Harrison is a jaded FBI agent who wants to investigate a case that his superiors keep warning him away from. When Kit shows up in Colorado looking for a lead, he meets Frannie and together they meet Max- a most amazing girl. Max leads them to chilling and horrible discoveries in a plot deeper than even Kit ever imagined.
When the Wind Blows was full of edge of your seat suspense. It was an easy quick read. My only complaint- the continual change from first to third person. Aaaack! Just a pet peeve of mine, I guess. I definitely am looking for more Patterson suspense!
