This is the worst James Patterson book I have ever read. I only got through the first section and decided to return to the library as there was a waiting list. The characters are not endearing and the name of the teenager "Bailey Mae" is irritating. Who names a child Bailey Mae?

I am only writing this comment in response to the first comment. The book is broken into three sections but it is not three different stories. The entire book follows Mitchum while he investigates different crimes as a "private investigator". Each section follows the same timeline put the different cases that Mitchum investigates. I don't think it was necessary to split the book into three sections but it's understandable being that it jumps ahead a few months at a time after each case. Also, the ending is satisfying.

Full disclosure - I did not realize when I picked THE RIVER MURDERS up that it had 3 shorter stories by James Patterson and James O. Born instead of a full-length novel. That's on me. I didn't discover that until I reached the end of the 1st story - 114 pages later. The story was interesting and I was ready to keep reading until the end of the book - but the story stopped. And it did not stop with a true ending. Totally left me hanging and frustrated. I decided not to read the next two stories, figuring they may end the same way. So in fairness, my mediocre rating for this book is based on only 1 of the 3 stories. What the first one seemed like to me was the beginning of a full fledged novel that someone decided not to finish. It could have been a good full-length novel giving all the twists and turns and story set-ups in the 114-page version. No comment on the other two as I didn't read them. caveat emptor.
