The Inn by James Patterson and Candice Fox
The Inn at Gloucester stands alone on the rocky New England shoreline. Its seclusion suits former Boston police detective Bill Robinson, novice owner and innkeeper. As long as the dozen residents pay their rent, Robinson doesn’t ask any questions.
Yet all too soon Robinson discovers that leaving the city is no escape from dangers he left behind. A new crew of deadly criminals move into the small town, bringing drugs and violence to the front door of the inn.
Robinson feels the weight of responsibility on his shoulders. His sense of duty compels him to fight off the threat to his town. But he can’t do it alone. Before time runs out, the residents of the inn will face a choice. – from the blurb
Candice Fox really gives a fresh feel to James Patterson’s style of writing. As usual with Patterson/Fox collaborations there is a great storyline and cast of unique characters. You could even say quirky characters in some cases.
Even though parts of this story were predictable, I found this novel to be a page turner, with many twists and turns which kept me guessing until the end. I really enjoyed the short chapters, which I think work well in a crime novel. building the tension.
