This is a typical James Patterson book, but nothing really special. As in most of his books, 4th of July is a good read. It held my attention throughout and I had trouble putting it down as usual. However this is not his strongest offering. I found some of the events in the book to be a little contrived in that so many things happen to be inter-related. I also was able to quickly figure out some of the major "twists" fairly early on, so I wasn't constantly trying to figure things out because I already knew mostly what was going on.
All in all, I would recommend 4th of July to Patterson fans, especially those that are following the Women's Murder Club series. It was an enjoyable book, but let's hope that The 5th Horseman brings us back to the normally high standard of thriller that I'm accustomed to from Mr. Patterson.
I have always been a great Danielle Steel lover, i have found another favorite !!!!!!!!!!

Wait, what? Emily S., did I just read your review correctly? Jill Bernhardt was definitely killed off in 3rd Degree. I just finished reading it and cried like a baby over her death. How could Mr. Patterson forget he killed off one of the four Women's Murder Club members, geez. If the author can't keep his characters straight, what's the point in having a series and, more importantly, why would any of his readers want to stick with it? So far, I've found the Women's Murder Club books quite enjoyable and was so looking forward to reading the entire series. However, if Mr. Paterson can't keep track of his own main characters, what would be the point. Too bad.
This is a very intense book that I enjoyed reading.

I have been very pleased with all the women's murder club books so far. I am on the 5th Horseman now.
