Mehr über den Autor

James Patterson sagt von sich selbst: "Ich bin schnell. Ich bin ein Ja-Nein-Typ, ich hasse Vielleichts." Und er ist tatsächlich so schnell, dass er an mehreren Romanen gleichzeitig arbeitet und pro Jahr mitunter fünf Titel auf Platz 1 der Bestsellerlisten landet. Begonnen hat seine Karriere, als er mit 27 Jahren den "Edgar Allan Poe Award" für seinen ersten Roman "Die Toten wissen gar nichts" bekam. Seitdem arbeitet er pausenlos an den Thrillern der "Alex-Cross"-Reihe oder schreibt über Detektiv Lindsay Boxer und den "Women's Murder Club". Hinzu kommen weitere Romane sowie Sach- und Kinderbücher. Patterson hat Englische Literatur studiert und war einige Jahre Chef einer Werbeagentur. Heute lebt er mit seiner Familie in Palm Beach City, Florida.

Patterson has found a way to disturb readers which is beyond the skills of most authors. To think about not only one, but two serial kidnappers/rapists/murderers, seriously upset this 17 year old high school boy. Alex Cross is one of the most realistic fictional detectives ever. He has lapses in judgment, just like real people, and the way he sometimes forgets something just as he needs to remember it is so true to life. Kate McTiernan is one of the most heart-rending stories in modern fiction. Hers is a highly endearing character; her toughness, her strength of will in situations that would break the strongest of us, her anti-narcissism, all of them engender not only our sympathy and compassion, but also our affection and admiration: we love her from the moment we meet her.
Patterson has a way of keeping us on the edge of our seats; he makes us need to see that Casanova and the Gentleman Caller are not just in jail, but are dead. Anyone such as Casanova (or the Gentleman Caller), who would consciously use something that is so special to a woman as her beauty and her sexuality, and make her loath it and wish it were not, while saying that he loves her, is an unspeakably evil person who needs to physically, emotionally, and psychologically feel the psychological, emotional, and physical torment of his victims. That statement is a basic truth of our emotional need for justice, and the scenario in this book intensifies that need for justice: The way in which the scenario plays out is what elevates this book far above even the excellence with which it was written. The most horrifying part of this book may be what is implicit from the content of the book: That there are actually people out there like Casanova and his friend the Gentleman caller.

Format: Taschenbuch
I find it disturbing that so many people have given this book the highest rating, because if any book in the whole history of bookdom deserves to be given a subzero-stars rating, this would be it. This book is the "Plan 9 from Outer Space" of thrillers. You cannot even say that the plot has holes, because it isn't solid enough to have holes in it.
The author expects us to believe no end of absurdities,for example, the "mind-bending" mystery of the "disappearing house," which can be guessed by anyone with a modicum of brains or imagination. And then there is the girl who did not escape a fate worse than death but at least she did escape from being killed in a manner most disagreeable and distasteful. You would expect her to make herself scarce, but nooo, she insists on going back to her house, from where she was taken, so we know that the rapist/killer knows where she lives. And it is not as if she lived in a well-lighted building with round-the-clock surveillance and lots of people around. No, she lives in an old, half-abandoned house full of dark corners and in the middle of nowhere, and no one thinks of placing her under surveillance, and the lights on the street don't work properly, and guess who comes a-calling! Well, I know it is a hard guess, but I'll give you a clue, it ain't Abbott and Costello.
Not to mention that Mr. Patterson belongs to the literary school of "Descriptions are Difficult, and besides, they are Boring." You know that when instead of taking the trouble to describe a character, he just says he or she looks like some old celebrity. So, we are told that the Gentleman Caller looks like "U2 singer Bono," and a prospective victim looks like "a young Grace Kelly," and so on.

Yes, this book is frightening and very suspenseful. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a passion for nail biting thrillers. This is a mystery that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. If you like mysteries this one was written for you. Kiss the Girls is about frightening man in his mid twenties. He goes by the name "Casanova". This creepy character stalks and then captures beautiful, inteligent, young women. Once captured he brings them to his home deep within the thick forrest of North Carolina and locks them up in a room. He then goves them certain rules to follow. If they break these rules Casanova puts a frightening end to their life. In this distrubing case there are many detectives trying to solve it. There is one detective Cross who is passionately involved because his neice Naomi has been captured by Casanova. Detective Cross refuses to rest until Casanova is captured and broughtr to justice. The terribly suspenseful, frightening ending has several surprising twists. I guess you'll just have to read it to find out. This book has a lot of good aspects. It is loaded with gripping suspense from start to finish. The frightening story never lets you take a rest. Another great aspect of the book is that it has very short, snappy chapters. Each chapter is only about 2 to 3 pages long and ends in a very suspenseful twist. This style of writing makes for non-stop, action-packed thrills. There are not many bad aspects about this book. One of the drawbacks is that the author goes into too many gory details. It is also very hard to follow who is who in this book. The good aspects of this story definitely outweigh the bad aspects, therefore, rush to your nearest bookstore and buy this book today.
