Author Info
James Patterson
James Patterson grew up in Newburgh, New York, 50 miles north of New York City. Valedictorian of his class at the Christian Brothers school, St. Patrick's, in 1965, Patterson graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in English. He first entertained the idea of becoming a writer in 1971 when he worked as a college student in a mental institution, a job that afforded him abundant time to read. He came up with the idea for his first novel during that time, and five years later, after 26 rejection slips, his first effort, "The Thomas Berryman Number", appeared in bookstores. Since that time, Patterson has written numerous best-selling thrillers featuring the sensitive, modern-day hero Alex Cross, including "Kiss the Girls", which was made into a major motion picture starring Morgan Freeman.
Praise
"1ST TO DIE follows the Patterson formula for success: short chapters, likable characters and graphic violence. This one has screenplay written all over it, but it delivers a sharp punch."
"This creeped-out murder mystery...features a fairly clever plot with enough last-minute revelations to keep you guessing (or at least, going)..."
From the Publisher
Annotation Introducing the Women's Murder Club--a quartet of San Francisco women who have teamed up to apprehend the city's most terrifying serial killer. They are, in no particular order: a journalist; a medical examiner; an assistant DA; and SFPD detective Lindsay Boxer, this new series's tormented heroine. In FIRST TO DIE, the club is on the trail of a murderer who kills couples on their wedding nights and sexually molests the brides' corpses.
