Death of the Black Widow

We rated this book:


Death of the Black Widow is another excellent read by James Patterson and was co-written by J.D. Barker. Although this book was long, it read very quickly because Patterson and Barker did a fantastic job of keeping the plot going at a fast pace. The book follows the main character Walter O’Brien, ex-cop and ex-FBI, who finds himself chasing after the same woman from when he met her in 1986 to his final stand-down with her in 2009. Walter and his partners and teammates are perplexed at this young woman because they all describe her as looking differently. To one soldier, she is a beautiful black woman. To Walter, she is a brunette with gray eyes. This beautiful woman also leaves a trail of death behind her with what seems like a simple touch.

This book will have you running into dark alleys and bloody hotel rooms with Walter. The girl, whom Walter calls Amy, has many names and many identities. This story and its characters are fascinating and intricately woven into one tight web. Death of the Black Widow is exactly the next installation that Patterson fans are looking for.
