Book Review of “The 8th Confession” By James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

The 8th Confession

By James Patterson and Maxine Paetro

A wee bit slow paced with no mind games for the reader. The redundant presentation is now getting over the top. It is just an enjoyable murder mystery with Patterson’s knack of etching intriguing antagonists.

The story is about a series of, what appear to be, un-connected murders with no clues whatsoever, beginning with the explosion of a school bus/ meth lab on the streets of San Francisco.

Reporter Cindy Thomas, Detective Lindsay Boxer, assistant district attorney Yuki Castellano, and medical examiner Claire Washburn get ready to solve the mysteries while juggling their private lives simultaneously.

A good measure of fervent romance steams up the storyline without deviating much from the plot.

It is a page turner, no doubt, to a certain extent but does not build up any suspense. The climax seems a tad disappointing with the sudden revelation of the culprit – something not expected by the readers.
