James Patterson – Truth or Die

As promised here’s my latest book review. I must admit this is probably a bit biased as Patterson is one of my favourite authors but noone ever claimed that reviews were objective pieces.

Truth or DieTruth or Die by James Patterson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If I had to describe Truth or Die with one word it would be addictive. It took me less than half a day to read it cover to cover. Those familiar with Patterson know he’s famous for his head spinning twists and Truth or Die is no exception. Patterson’s character development is intriguing and readers will find the plot simultaneously engaging and confounding. You’ll form an emotional connection with protagonist Trevor Mann before you even finish the prologue and Patterson draws you into his narrative. A must read for crime/thriller lovers.
