Quotes & Awards

  • “With a steel guitar twanging blues in the background, Will Patton performs this reissue of Patterson’s 1976 debut novel...Patton uses a bluegrass drawl and the soft sound of a New York drug-world hustler, helping the listener understand the complexity of the characters. Patterson’s observations are masterfully transformed into critical insights with Patton’s skillful pacing.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by John | 1/22/2014

    " This, the debut novel from James Patterson, shows that he was once a promising name in literary crime fiction--though, now, he seems quite content to just stick his name on a whole lot of mediocre crap he didn't even write. That being said, although the writing in this book is excellent and reminds me of something by Dennis Lehane, the story itself is over-long and boringly simple. I dare you to read the last page and not think, "Is that it?" "

    " Finished reading James Patterson's The Thomas Berryman Number. The first novel by James Patterson. Was so so for me as the story line was about a reporter looking into 3 murders. However it was a start from this novel that lead to greater series and other stories from the great story teller. :) "
