Critics Review

  • It’s no mystery why James Patterson is the world’s most popular thriller writer: his uncanny skill in creating living, breathing characters we truly feel for and seamless, lightning-fast plots. I do this for a living, and he still manages to keep me guessing from the first to last page … Simply put: Nobody does it better

  • Behind all the noise and the numbers, we shouldn’t forget that no one gets this big without amazing natural storytelling talent – which is what Jim has, in spades. The Alex Cross series proves it.

    LEE CHILD, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
  • James Patterson is The Boss. End of.

    IAN RANKIN, bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus series
  • Twenty years ago, I wrote, “Along Came a Spider is the best thriller I’ve come across in many a year. It deserves to be this season’s no. 1 bestseller and should instantly make James Patterson a household name.” A household name, indeed.

    NELSON DEMILLE
  • Every once in a while a writer comes along and fundamentally changes the way people read. He or she is so bright, so innovative, so industrious that what they envision and create becomes the measure by which all others are judged. In 1993 one such writer – James Patterson – began to do just that … James Patterson is the gold standard by which all others are judged.
