The review of this Book prepared by Tracey Ray

Absolutely wonderful. There is no one better than Patterson, other than his one poor book, I've never read anything I disliked. This book is the most suprising and fantastically written book I've encountered in a long time. I love this book, it's on my heavy rotation of books that I re-read. There is nothing about this book I'd ever want to see changed. I absolutely recommend this book.
