Thanks to Lori's Reading Corner for the idea for another Meme. I love these things lol
Basically every Saturday she will put up a new topic and everyone who participates posts on their blog about it. This week's spotlight (my first one!) is to tell about my favorite male mystery writer!
I had a hard type picking considering its true - I am gender-biased and usually read works by women - but I finally picked James Patterson. The first book I ever read by him was Along Came a Spider and it was AH-FREAKING-MAZING! One of the best suspense/thriller/mysteries of all time in my not-so-humble opinion. I could read it over and over again (if I ever locate my tattered copy lol). He really has a knack for pulling in his readers from page 1, paragraph 1 and not letting go. Naturally, he has had some misses (like most of the books in the Women's Murder Series!) but overall, he's a keeper and has earned his millions hehe. Other books I HIGHLY recommend by him are The Beachouse and Kiss the Girls.
