This is the first book in a long time that I couldn t put down What a great story I thoroughly enjoyed this one It was fast paced and to the point I m disappointed it s over Christened The Dealer by the media the serial killer s calling card was literally that a playing card With it he identified the next person he would murder the police just had to figure it out before it happened NYPD Detective Elizabeth Needham was in charge of the case and when she alerted Professor Dylan Reinhart to the killer and his macabre murders the two of them immediately concentrated on following the clues Reinhart was an expert *In The Criminal Mind His *the criminal mind his had some connection to the killings was it possible he would see what agenda the killer was followingBut their frustration was immense as killings followed Who would be next Why were these people being killed What was the link What would be the outcome Murder Games by James Patterson is the 1st in the Instinct series and I thoroughly enjoyed it The sual choppy chapters that Patterson is known for kept the pace electric the action non stop and the adrenalin flowing An excellent thriller
which I highly recommend I m looking forward to the 2nd Killer Instinct soon it wasI highly recommend I m looking forward to the 2nd Killer Instinct soon it was ick read I felt like the authors had one speed driving on a straight flat desert road A little disappointing especially coming from James Patterson I think it s time to slow down his speed of writing focus on Knights of the Hill Country uality notantity Prolific author James Patterson and co author Howard Roughan really hit a home run with this one Intriguing story interesting characters and IMHO an exceptionally satisfying ending So much did I enjoy the characters in fact that I d love to see psychology professor Dr Dylan Reinhart and NYPD Detective Elizabeth Needham turned into a series one that includes I emphasize Reinhart s delightful partner TracyThe book reeled me in right from the start well if I don t count the opening remarks by a serial killer dubbed The Dealer with the introduction of 34 year old Reinhart who teaches a course on abnormal behavior and is the author of a book on what he calls persuasion theory Psychology is my own ndergraduate degree and just about any time I find a mysterythriller that focuses on that subject I m hooked Sometimes that s a good thing and sometimes not but in this case I got to the end with a big smile on my faceTruth be told Reinhart has a bit of an obnoxious streak but he clearly knows his stuff and his sometimes off putting personality is nicely tempered by the aforementioned Tracy The plot begins as Needham interrupts one of Reinhart s classes making the attention getting pronouncement that someone apparently wants to kill the professor Turns out that s her way of asking for help with a murder case in which the killer leaves a playing card Reinhart is skeptical but when a second murder takes place and another playing card is left at the scene he realizes as does she that a serial killer is on the looseReinhart and Needham develop something of a rapport albeit grudgingly at first Their investigative efforts are interspersed with bits of humor as they come to respect one another and follow clues that extend to a pesky journalist and even the local mayor who s in desperation mode while vying for reelection But is the deck stacked so far against them that the killer will end p with the winning hand Inuiring minds want to know at least mine #Sure Did Now I Do #did Now I do I m sorry to close the book on these characters Bring them back please Readable but pretty mediocre Not thrilling in the least The detective didn t much detect The psychologist didn t do much.
