The Midnight Club (1989) by James Patterson is so page-turning and interesting, the reader will find themselves further into the book than they expect in no time.
James Patterson as a writer has a way of just drawing readers in and getting them hooked on his novels. And this book is no exception. It has a very quick pace and is action-packed. This story’s protagonist is Detective John Stefanovitch. His job: find out about the secretive Midnight Club and find out about their leader. With a host of characters who supply our suspect list, this book is an excellent read. I have heard it being spoken of as not one of Patterson’s best reads. Each to their own but I enjoyed it as much as any other James Patterson book. I loved the brilliant twists and turns, the mystery of it all and I loved seeing the personal and the working life of Stefanovitch. Stefanovitch is in a wheelchair after being shot by the Grave Dancer on the night his wife was killed. And now Stefanovitch is more determined than ever after years of rehabilitation to catch the Grave Dancer now part of the Midnight Club. I love that he had a detective who was in a wheelchair because that isn’t done often enough and I think we need to as writers represent all people in life and show that because someone is disabled it doesn’t mean they can’t achieve anything anyone who isn’t disabled can.
There is also a mention of the Twin Towers in this book which sent a shiver down my spine when I read it knowing what happened in 2011.
I found this an intriguing read. I was hooked to find out what would happen and I loved that this book was longer than many James Patterson novels leaving me with more excellent reading. For me James Patterson can do no wrong. I think he is an incredible writer and every time I find his books amazing and filled with plenty of interest and excellent writing. I loved it.
