Short & Sweet Review: Chase by James Patterson

Title: Chase

"This was no suicide," says Detective Michael Bennett.

A man plunges to his death from the roof of a Manhattan hotel. It looks like a suicide--except the victim has someone else's fingerprints and $10,000 in cash. Enter Detective Michael Bennett.

***Short & Sweet Reviews are short, quick reviews. These will mainly be used for series books where I have already done full reviews on some of the earlier books or for books that I feel will suffice with a quick review. These will not be used for review requests or blog tours.

My thoughts:  I love these little BookShots that James Patterson has added to his repertoire and I love that he has brought them into just about all his series. They provide a nice little break from the full-length novels. Not that there is anything wrong with those, but every once in a while, it's nice to just have a book that is all action and not bogged down with the details. And that is exactly what we have here...a book that gets straight into the action, doesn't take time to fill in any backstory, and focuses completely on the one case. That's it.

The case itself was quite a mystery for our beloved detective. It seemed to take him quite a while to figure out just what was going on, but then it wrapped up rather quickly. The one thing I did miss though in this short novella was all his interactions with his family...that's why I love this series so much. So as much as I like the brevity of these BookShots, I do love the full-length novels a bit better.
