Praise for 22 Seconds

No one gets this big without natural storytelling talent - which is what Jim has, in spades.

LEE CHILD, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series

Patterson boils a scene down to a single, telling detail, the element that defines a character or moves a plot along. It's what fires off the movie projector in the reader's mind.

MICHAEL CONNELLY

James Patterson is the boss. End of.
