Kiss the Girls by James Patterson

If I remember correctly, I got this book because I had a Target giftcard that needed spending and I decided I would spend it on books. At the time, this was evidently the pick of Target’s book selection. It was a fairly enjoyable mystery/thriller, imaginative in some ways and decidedly unimaginative in others. The plot and pacing were both fairly simple and another good indication of the kind of popular fiction I could write if I was interested in writing popular fiction. The most memorable part of the book was the furtive love affair that developed between main characters Alex Cross and Kate McTiernan. Memorable only because Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd played those characters in the movie, and although the movie eliminated that particular subplot, I still had a hard time envisioning Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd getting all lovey-dovey with each other.
