It was this or a James Patterson does Christmas and this sounded preferable. It’s an odd book – a serious crime is about to be committed and the perpetrators have set it up to look like the protagonist is going to do it. So there’s a massive manhunt.
That’s the start – The setting is New York City between a day before Christmas to New Year’s Eve. The tension is good and skillfully built, but it’s a bit light because this is Christmas, after all. There are lots of deaths though. And it’s pretty fun overall.
