Constantly through all my reviews on Patterson books I have continually said that i have yet to find a bomb so to speak. The Thomas Berryman Number was my 21st Patterson novel and how ironic the bomb i would find planted within the Patterson bibliography would be his very first book ever??!! Now everyone sets out in life in their chosen profession on a trial and error basis, given that I am no way at the point where i would say well that's it hands down...no more Patterson however if The Thomas Berryman Number was the very first book i had ever read of Patterson's i would've definatly thought really hard about reading anymore of his work.
This book was so hard to follow i can't even with a clear head come up with a proper review on the synopsis as i usually do. Black Senator has been elected...assassination plot... an author who is writing about Berryman the killer??? So sorry i just can't. This was once again for the record James's first novel, and hell..i have never even attempted writing a book let alone how many he has so whom am i to criticize? In my journey through his books from A-Z I have enjoyed every single one of them up to reading this..he definatly gets a pass this time round! So in short if you are, like me, reading through his works you can either pass this, as i should've, or read it just to say it's done, as i did also, but just be forewarned tis all!
