>> “Confessions: The Paris Mysteries” is the third book in James Patterson’s “Confessions” series. The book begins with series protagonist Tandy Angel reuniting with her missing boyfriend. In the next paragraph, they already are accosted by her boyfriend’s domineering, possibly evil, father. Two paragraphs later, he is chased away by Tandy. That’s right. The main antagonist is chased away within the first three pages. He comes back later, but I was so dumbstruck by this sudden rush of action and payoff that I had to take a break from the book. I’ve never really been a James Patterson fan, but after that rush of excitement, I understand why so many people like his books. They are exciting and leave things such as character details to the reader’s imagination. Despite that, this book just wasn’t for me. Still Patterson does know how to keep his readers on the edge of their seats, which is always a plus when it comes to books. If you like Patterson, this is a must read.
