I recently finished reading James Patterson’s “The First Lady”:
I’m not normally a big fan of the thriller / crime genre, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one, and I anticipate I’ll read more James Patterson books in the future.
The chapters are short, the font is reasonably clear and large (paperback edition), and it’s a large “floppy” paperback that’s easy to hold and read. (These things are important to someone who’s nearsighted and likes to read in bed). Each chapter ends on a cliffhanger, so you want to keep racing ahead to see what will happen.
Not to give away too much, but the story takes place in Washington, D.C., and is peopled by highly-placed government officials. When the First Lady goes missing, a mystery ensues – was she kidnapped? Is she in hiding? Where did she go, and why is she gone? And who is at fault – terrorists, someone with a personal grudge, those close to the First Lady, or perhaps even the President himself?
This would make a good beach read – fast paced and exciting.
