Description

Chicago PD Detective Billy Harney was on the trail of a kidnapper, who as far as they knew, had a victim in the vehicle as they followed him.

After five teenage girls are abducted in Chicago, all eyes turn to CPD Detective Billy Harney to find them. With the loss of his partner fuelling him, Harney strengthens his resolve to find her killer - and to make sure the body count ends there. While I have had some issues with James Patterson and his writing, he has certain collaborators who coax out some superior writing to which the popular author is attributed.

The character of Billy’s sister was further developed in this book, which added depth to the series. He has written many other number one bestsellers including collaborations with President Bill Clinton and Dolly Parton, stand-alone thrillers and non-fiction. Hachette Book Group is a leading book publisher based in New York and a division of Hachette Livre, the third-largest publisher in the world. Your payment method will be charged immediately, and the product is expected to ship on or around June 20, 2022. Jericho Hooper is built up pretty big in the beginning but plays a smaller role than expected, and also comes across a bit stiff and one dimensional.

Now, in 2022, Patterson and Ellis have brought back Harney for a third thriller, changing the book type title lingo to “Escape” and setting up Detective Harney’s hunt for a child kidnapper. The ending was also set up like there might be a book 4 in the future so will definitely keep an eye out for that. Although the suspense and mysteries weren’t bad, there were some actions and outcomes that didn’t really make sense to me and hurt the plotting. I didn't realise it was book 3 in a series and I haven't read the previous books but I don't think that took away from the story. Following a few key leads, Harney and his partner travel to a rural home, where they hope to find the girls and solve the case with little issue.He’s mind candy – simple, fast-paced, detective and mystery-oriented adventures that can be read in about two to three days and easily left behind. Bill does standup at the cop bar when he’s needing to unwind and is on the special assignments force handling the tough stuff.

One that involves being the lead for a task force focused on a major gang bust, taking down Jericho Hooper, the leader of the Imperial Gangster Nation, the biggest and most powerful street gang in Chicago.While there are quite a few stereotypes here, the storyline still has some interesting twists, turns and tumbles. While not the best of the Patterson’s attributed series, it kept me intrigued until the final page turn, with a cliffhanger of its own. I have been a big fan of James Patterson for perhaps thirty years having read over a hundred novels but have been disappointed with the nasty language in the more recent stories. This was one of his best books (along with the list of his many co-authors) that I had read in a long time. Harney and his partner, Carla, follow a lead to a remote house, only to find themselves caught in a deadly trap.
