He had always wanted to be famous. When he kidnapped two well-known rich kids, it was headline news. Then one of them was found -- dead -- and the whole nation was in uproar.

Patterson at His Best
My book club decided to go back and read the book that launched Patterson's career. It's suspenseful and intriguing. A fantastic read that's great for discussion.
