"Kingfisher was worse than all of them put together." ~ pg. 54
My Series Sunday pick is The Trial, #15.5 book in the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. Kingfisher is on trial for murder. Yet he still brings terror to the lawyers, judges, jurors and police involved with his case. How is he calling the shots and making moves under heavy surveillance? Surely there is more to the story than meets the readers' eye.
I have to give it to James Patterson. He's a literary genius, really. He has truly mastered the art of writing, selling and marketing bestsellers. Much respect to his methods. Hence the reason I am currently taking his MasterClass. The Trial, like other BookSHOTS, are necessary to read. If you are not up-to-date on the series, they can be read as a standalone; however, they cannot be skipped when reading the series. Sounds confusing but I find it true. Bookhearts, you will miss something if you read WMC #15 and #16 without reading this #15.5 BookSHOT. And for this reason alone, it was worth reading. Never mind that it held my attention and kept me guessing until the last page. The Trial is a fictional courtroom shocker.
