What do you promise yourself after reading a great, unforgettable book? Find the author of the book and pick his mind? Assassinate a powerful figure? Or simply wish you’re one of the characters of the book and live one page at a time? Eight books and six more to go, I have made one promise to myself. Now I’m reading the ninth in my collection. I discovered Richard North Patterson through “Dark Lady” and the rest are simply irresistible.
