Pick up an old copy of one of his earlier works titled 1ST To DIE. Set in San Francisco where we visited last summer. I thought of you left coast guys as I picked it up with the GG Bridge on the cover.

It's a real page turner. I've read many of his crime novels but recently they are written often with someone else and are printed every other week. This one is good but is the first of a series of novels with the same characters solving the crimes and looks like I might be hooked yet again. My wife has like 10 of these.-- MERCY!

I'll try them-- got one for you-- Parker. He writes manly books. Characters are somewhat macho, mostly quiet or short sentence commnication. Very easy reads and some fun. He wrote three cowboy stories which don't sound good but are. Try it, you'll like it.

That Patterson was a good story but too much love and feelings for me. It also has a surprise ending and will keep you reading but somewhat unrealistic outcome of the story. Almost seems like a for TV movie kinda book. Give it a B at best.
