Kort biografi
James Patterson and his wife live with their son in Palm Beach.
James Brendan Patterson (born March 22, 1947) is an American author and philanthropist. Among his works are the Alex Cross, Michael Bennett, Women's Murder Club, Maximum Ride, Daniel X, NYPD Red, Witch and Wizard, and Private series, as well as many stand-alone thrillers, non-fiction and romance novels. His books have sold more than 300 million copies and he was the first person to sell 1 million e-books. In 2016, Patterson topped Forbes's list of highest-paid authors for the third consecutive year, with an income of $95 million. His total income over a decade is estimated at $700 million.

In November 2015, Patterson received the Literarian Award from the National Book Foundation, which cited him as a "passionate campaigner to make books and reading a national priority. A generous supporter of universities, teachers colleges, independent bookstores, school libraries, and college students, Patterson has donated millions of dollars in grants and scholarships with the purpose of encouraging Americans of all ages to read more books."

Patterson was born on March 22, 1947, in Newburgh, New York, the son of Isabelle (Morris), a homemaker and teacher, and Charles Patterson, an insurance broker. The family were working-class and of Irish descent. He graduated summa cum laude with both a B.A. in English from Manhattan College and an M.A. in English from Vanderbilt University.

Recensioner

En thrillerklassiker med en rätt så långsam och utdragen start som varken väcker känslor eller motiverar till att läsa vidare. Den andra halvan av boken är dock magnifik - spännande, fartfylld, överraskande och skickligt skriven. Patterson har ett vardagligt, något ålderdomligt språk, som flyter på bra under dialoger och fartfyllda scener men fallerar lite grann under beskrivningar. En helt okej thriller som dock är oerhört ojämn och vars karaktärer är oerhört svåra att känna sympati för. Den känns även ovanligt främmande och avlägsen för amerikansk thriller.… (mer)
