The Junk Run
By James Patterson
Reviewed by Heath Henwood
Engaging, but not Patterson’s Best
James Patterson has a reputation for fast paced, intriguing mysteries, that hold the read on the edge of their seat. This book is a letdown.
The plot rolls along, like travelling down the winding Scottish lanes, but fails to develop the tension that I was waiting for. Detective Standon is asked to consider the mysterious disappearance of playboy Paul White.
The characters lacked depth and life, which, along with the lack of pace in the storyline, gave the book a formula approach to writing.
