The Coast to Coast Murders by JD Barker and James Patterson
A detective and FBI agent join forces on what seems like an open-and-shut case -- but a new rash of killings sends them on a pulse-pounding race against time in this intense thriller.
Michael and Megan Fitzgerald are siblings who share a terrifying past. Both adopted, and now grown -- Michael is a long-haul truck driver, Megan a college student majoring in psychology -- they trust each other before anyone else. They've had to. Their parents are public intellectuals, an Ivy League clinical psychologist and a renowned psychiatrist, and they brought up their adopted children in a rarefied, experimental environment. It sheltered them from the world's harsh realities, but it also forced secrets upon them, secrets they keep at all costs.
In Los Angeles, Detective Garrett Dobbs and FBI Agent Jessica Gimble have joined forces to work a murder that seems like a dead cinch. Their chief suspect is quickly identified and apprehended --but then there's another killing just like the one they've been investigating. And another. And not just in Los Angeles -- the spree spreads across the country. The Fitzgerald family comes to the investigators' attention, but Dobbs and Gimble are at a loss -- if one of the four is involved,whichFitzgerald might it be?
From coastal California to upstate New York, Dobbs and Gimble race against time and across state lines to stop an ingenious and deeply deranged killer -- one whose dark and twisted appetites put them outside the range of logic or experience.
***** 5 STAR REVIEW!! *****
Wow!! What a book!! I have said this before and I will say it again, I will read anything and everything JD Barker writes. Now when you add a legend like James Patterson as a co-author with JD Barker, the book becomes the best of the best!! This duo does not disappoint.
The Coast to Coast Murders will literally have you on the edge of your seat from the very first chapter. It's action packed and will have your mind spinning nonstop with the possibilities of what is going on.
The story is told from multiple points of view but flowed from each character flawlessly. Every chapter you read will have you changing your mind. Once you think you have it all figured out, guess again. Barker and Patterson keep throwing twists after twists at you. My mind has whiplash right now! By the ending of the book, my jaw was on the floor because I didn't see that coming.
Now speaking of that ending, I'm curious if we are going to get more of this twisted story and incredible co-written madness. Don't be alarmed. You get an epic ending but there is so much potential for this story to continue.
I want to talk about all the characters in full blown detail but you have to go into this book knowing nothing. Just pick it up and get lost into the phenomenal, mind blowing story.
I am an addict to thrillers and I am craving more from this duo!!
