To say that James Patterson is a prolific writer is a bit of an understatement. He has over 200 titles to his credit as a writer or co-author. Now, he is sponsoring a series of quick-read novels for people on the go, called BookShots. Patterson is coauthoring several of these, but many more simply have his name on the cover for recognition, while the content is written by another author. The Port Library has six of these slim volumes, and will likely add a few more.
Killer Chef by James Patterson with Jeffrey J. Keyes is a super-fast paced story set in New Orleans, with a chef by day and detective by night named Caleb. During the day Caleb sells the city’s best po’boy sandwiches out of his food truck called Killer Chef alongside his ex-wife Marlene. By night he solves mysteries as a detective with the local police force, and the latest case is a little too close for comfort. It seems someone is murdering diners in the neighborhood with poison.Who is behind it all? In true James Patterson style the answer is found, and then disproven, about three times before the case is finally solved. And all in under 150 pages.
