really enjoyed this book. I love having a book with strong female characters. There were definitely some twists that were unexpected. I read the book in one day, a real page turner. ( )

The main character - a female detective struggling with emotional and serious health problems - hunts a serial killer focussing on couples on their wedding day.

This book was a fast and entertaining read. I liked the style element of writing chapters from the pov of the killer, without giving too many clues. The ending was ok, although I would have preferred a little less surprise twisting of the plot.
The characters are not very well developed and their behaviour and interaction is a little implausible from time to time. I disliked the way the author divided the book in too many short chapters.

I added the second part of the series to my too read shelf - sometimes I like fast and entertaining crime stories in between other books and I read somewhere that the series is getting better because of a co-author ( )

This book was a giant cliche. I knew almost immediately that this was about framing the actual murderer. The only thing surprising was the epiloge, which made no real sense. Like seriously, he had no reason to go to her apartment and try to kill her. None. I read this book to get a feel for James Patterson and as popular an author he is, I had much higher expectations for his writing abilities. ( )
