James Patterson and Maxine Paetro- The 8th Confession (Grand central Publishing 2010) 3.5 Stars
The rich are dying in San Francisco and Detective Boxer is being pressured from up top to clear this case. No one seems to know the cause of these deaths until it slaps them in the face, but will it help them solve the case? Meanwhile Bagman Jesus has just been brutally murdered and his being homeless seems to make him less important, that is until Cindy Thomas gets things rolling for him in the newspapers. The problem is that he may not have been the saint they originally figured him for.
Another great introduction from Patterson, this is a great skill of his. I also really love his plots as they seem to twist and turn, shocking you at every chance. I did find that there was a little much going on in this novel. Too many characters are making for too many storylines, which is kind of distracting. I also find his need to throw in so many personal romances in every book to be fairly annoying. Too much personal drama makes for slower reading. The characters are usually very detailed because of this fact, but in this case it is the same information we found out in every other book in this series. Overall this book is a good addition to this series, but Patterson really needs to know when to end a series. This can be said of many authors though.
