A really enjoyable book this one, and a nice change to read something from James Patterson that's not an Alex Cross novel.
He's still sticking with the crime/police investigation side of things though, probably because it's easier to write about something you're familiar with, and he must have done plenty of research over the years for Alex Cross.
The book stretched the imagination some what though, a single man with a brood of adopted children that are all sick, yet he can mop up after them, be up most of the night, and only on an hour or two's sleep, he can still solve the murder that his much more awake and alert colleagues can't.
As for the murderer, he's a bit of an odd one, I didn't find myself caring much about who it was, just why he was doing it. It was a bit clichéd as well, with the murderer eventually becoming fixated on the detective, in a similar way to many of Alex's nemesis' became fixated on him.
It's not a long book, and doesn't take much effort to read it, so it'd be a perfect holiday book.
