    Lame, convoluted plot. Shallow characters. Surprised Patterson put his name on this book. Rated it 1/5 stars so there would be no confusion that I submitted a rating.
  • Not a great read...

    Not up to the standard of his previous books. There was lots of jumping around and it made me not like the main character. Not a great effort.
  • Not worth 5 minutes

    Took a long time to develop as I was taken on a tour of nworlins to set up the sequel Ex cop chef smarter than the police/feds Ok but tied together nicely at the end
  • The Chef is hard to swallow

    Not up to James Patterson standards. Dialogue and characters are mostly laughable. Read during a transcontinental flight and was easy to speed read since much of the narrative was pure drivel. Sorry I wasted my time.
  • Very lame.

    I HAVE ENJOYED PREVIOUS BOOKS BY JAMES PATTERSON, BUT THIS BOOK WAS SIMPLY HARD TO FINISH. THE PLOT LINE WAS SIMPLISTIC , WITH MOST OF THE FOCUS ON ONE UNREALISTIC HERO CHEF. OUR AUTHOR MADE A SUPERMAN OUT OF THE CHEF WHICH DOES NOT EVEN RESEMBLE REAL LIFE. THERE WERE PAGES OF DESCRIPTIONS OF CAJUN AND CREOLE FOOD, WHICH I FOUND TO BE NOTHING BUT PAGE FILLERS. PATTERSON OBVIOUSLY GOT PAID BY THE PAGE FOR THIS ONE...
