Death of the Black Widow Paperback – 5 October 2022
|New from||Used from|
|Paperback, 5 October 2022|| |
A rookie never forgets his first case.
On his first night with Detroit PD, Officer Walter O'Brien is called to a murder scene. A terrified twenty-year-old has bludgeoned her kidnapper with skill that shocks even O'Brien's veteran partner. The young woman is also a brilliant escape artist. Her bold flight from police custody makes the case impossible to solve - and, for Walter, even more impossible to forget.
By the time Walter's promoted to detective, his fascination with the missing, gray-eyed woman is approaching obsession. And when Walter discovers that he's not alone in his search, one truth is certain. This deadly string of secrets didn't begin in his home city - but he's going to make sure it ends there.

I couldn't wait to read this book and was definitely not left disappointed.
Death of the Black Widow will keep you turning pages long into the night, trying to imagine where these authors are going. I certainly couldn't put it down.
Well worth a read and definitely highly recommended.
The only downside, for me, it had to come to an end.
I continued to read hoping the story improved to reality, but sadly it didn’t.
Not one of Mr Patterson’s finest!

N.B. I posted the previous paragraph before I had read the book completely. It turned into a weird horror type story halfway though which has made me change my mind about it. It's not a believable story, in fact it reminds me of one of Patterson's I read years ago about babies being stolen and changed to fairies. Give me a much more believable crime story please or have another partner when writing a story. Sorry, I did stay until the end but No, No, No.
