Killed or Be Killed (4 Bookshots Thrillers) by James Patterson

Reviewed by Allen Hott

Kill or Be KilledA bit different as this book written by Patterson along with other writers is actually made up of four stories. Patterson does write quite often now with others but this is the first one that I have seen made up of novellas. Overall quite interesting although the one was a bit tough to follow due to being basically about Scotland Yard and some devious criminals. And another that was not at all Patterson style.

    The Trial

The first however is The Trial and features Patterson’s famed Women’s Murder Club. Lindsay Boxer and her cohorts get involved early when Boxer is called to the scene of a major disturbance and subsequent shootout at a place called the Vault. It appears two women were shot dead and then as several bad guys attempt to get away the police shoot two of the bad guys and capture one.

The one they capture turns out to be the shooter of the two women and is quickly identified as Jorge Sierra also known as Kingfisher. Boxer had known of him and was very eager to take him into custody.

However that then really turns into the story as while Kingfisher is in jail all sorts of things happen to thwart his trail and to cause deep concern to the police. These actions are all put together by the underground network of criminals that basically work for and report to Kingfisher.
