A series of four stories called novels which are novellas at best. I think Grade 3 students might be able to come up with better adventure stories. 'The Trial' is mindless bang bang and less plot than a video game (half a star is generous). 'The Heist' is the best of a bad bunch (2 stars at most). 'The Women's War' is tripe (half a star is enough). 'Little Black Dress' is different but lacks a plot (one star at best). This is definitely the last time I waste any energy reading Patterson & gang.
