Deadly Cross

I've heard of most of the highest paid authors, like J.K. Rowling, Stephen King and John Grisham. But perhaps the highest paid author of the last decade is someone I hadn't heard of until a couple of weeks ago: James Patterson. So I decided to give one of his popular novels, Deadly Cross, a read, and it did not disappoint.

The story was gripping, making it a quick read despite having many pages. It's one of those unpredictable murder mysteries that keeps the reader guessing right up until the end.

While I would read this author again in the future, there is one problem for me with this type of book: I don't feel like I learned enough. I prefer books like this that take place in another time and/or place, so I can learn more about some historical event or lost culture that I otherwise wouldn't have the patience to learn about in a non-fiction format.
