Who wrote this tripe????

By chapter 30(and I had to struggle to stay with it that long) I didn't have a clue what was going on and was really very very tired of all the references to past Presidents, movies and songs!!

Patterson should've proofread this one before he put his name on it!

Boy, all the reviews on this book are varied, from one star to five! I thought it was an exciting non stop thriller and enjoyed the humor throughout. However, Ben's OCD was annoying as he kept spouting references to movie stars, movies and other trivia ad nauseam .

The good news: There are a couple of twists that make the book worth reading. The bad news: You have to live inside the mind of an ADHD Washington reporter to get through the book. The book has entire paragraphs of ramblings that have absolutely nothing to do with the plot or characters. About 1/3 of the book is the main character sharing his thoughts about his favorite moves, presidential trivia, or what would Matt Damon do as Jason Bourne if he where in this situation, etc... Not one of Patterson's best
