Review: 14th Deadly Sin

14th Deadly Sin
14th Deadly Sin by James Patterson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The wife likes these books, she’s the target market – that CSI loving, police drama tv loving market. Sales are high, these guest-written Patterson books fill the top sellers lists, but they’re to crime what Mills&Boon are to romance – accessible and undemanding. The writing is awful, the plots are flimsy, yet they’re fast moving and written in the style of a daytime soap – addictive to the target audience. I would give this 2 stars, the wife 4, so 3 seems like a reasonable compromise.
