117 Days of James Patterson - Day Fourteen

Day Fourteen, Chapter Fourteen
In the midst of canvassing the neighborhood around the Dowlings' house, Lindsay interviews a kid who claims to have seen shadows running around, dressed in black. Then she gets a text message from Yuki, who she calls back right away. Sometimes I think it's best to just let James speak for himself.
"God! I know her!" Yuki said.
"Know who?"
"Casey Dowling."
Frickin' grapevine. How could she have heard already?
"We went to law school together, Lindsay. Damn it. Casey was a sweetheart. A doll. When you catch the shooter, I'm going to fight for the case, and then I'm going to send Casey Dowling's killer straight to hell."

  1. Are you frickin' jealous that I'm starting "Tinkers" tonight? You know: A real book? (Or so they say.) Mwahahahahahaha.

  2. So cruel. I'm a trailblazer! A pioneer in a forbidden landscape! And it's not like I'm curling up every night with JPatt (either figuratively or literally). I've been reading (real book) Matterhorn as an escape - yes, I prefer the horrific bloodshed of war over any more Patterson than I'm already dealing with.

    Besides, Tinkers sounds like kind of a bummer to me. Let me know how it goes.

  3. I think this project might get you a slot in James Patterson's stable of co-writers. I think reading one of his books is the only pre-requisite.
