wow. there's a thread for Patterson fans! count me in then! i'm a HUGE fan. i've been a follower of the WOMEN'S MURDER CLUB series and read the latest installment 8th Confession in almost 2 days! i sooooo love Patterson because he's such a brilliant writer. his books are fast-paced, the twists in the plot are really shocking and yes, he always keeps you at the edge of your seat. always keeps me awake 'til the wee hours of the morning. and the reason of my poor eyesight!
