Two Quickie Reviews: Bloody Valentine & Bullseye

18709246 Will Robie is closing in on his next target when he finds himself in the middle of a bank heist–and he’s taken hostage alongside Oliver Stone. But is this just a simple bank job, or are the robbers after something even more valuable–and dangerous–than the cash in the vault?

I’ve been a fan of David Baldacci’s for some time now, however I’ve stuck mostly to his King & Maxwell series.  Until now, I’d not read any of his Will Robie series so, when I stumbled across this short story, I thought I might as well give it a shot.

I’m grateful I did.  While I don’t have any idea what the heck the Camel Club is (this was book 2.5 in the series), I’m now very interested to find out.  I want to know more about Will Robie and what got him to the point he was in this short story.  Color me intrigued if nothing else.

 

9593938 Mega rich restaurant owner Jack Barnes and his second wife Zee are very much in love. However, their plans for Valentine’s Day are about to be torn apart by the most violent murder.Who is the strange figure plotting this sick crime? Who hates Jack that much? There are plenty of suspects living in Jack’s fancy block of flats. Is it them, or could it be the work of an outsider with a twisted mind? One thing’s for sure, the police have got their work cut out solving this bloody mess.

James Patterson is one of my favorite authors.  He has this precise way of writing that makes the books very readable and quick to get through.  That doesn’t mean he skimps on the plot either.  I don’t know how to explain it, but I enjoy whatever it is.

This didn’t remind me of anything I’d read of his before, but it was still very enjoyable.  It was a little grittier and gruesome than his others, but the story was still engaging.  I have a couple other shorts by him, I do believe, and I need to read them soon.

    1. I don’t want to make a steady diet of them, but I think they’re great for when I’m in a reading slump or am pressed for time. Definitely a great way to find out if you’re going to like an author or not. And, if not? You’re out $2 instead of $20.

      But I totally get why a lot of people don’t like short stories and novellas. 🙂
