Hide and Seek (James Patterson)
This is a trial that has electrified the world. Not only because the defendant is Maggie Bradford, the woman whose songs have captured hearts across the globe. And not only because the victim is Will Shepherd, the internationally admired athlete. But also because people are saying that Maggie has murdered not just one husband, but two.
In Maggie's world - the world of fame and celebrity - things are never what they seem.
Quote: "I used to daydream all the time about stuff like this happening. Everybody does. So this had to be a crazy daydream, didn't it?"
My thoughts on this book: It was OK. The main problem was that the first 2/3 of the story were a woman telling us all about her life, particularly her love life. This was pretty boring as I do not read James Patterson for a woman's description of her beautiful wedding or how each new guy in her life made her feel so special. The ending is more classic Patterson with some good action, mystery, and twists.
Not one of his more exciting books, but the ending will probably make you forget how boring the beginning was.
