About the author

Biography of Patterson, James

James Patterson was born in Newburgh, New York, on March 22, 1947. He graduated from Manhattan College in 1969 and received a M. A. from Vanderbilt University in 1970. His first novel, The Thomas Berryman Number, was written while he was working in a mental institution and was rejected by 26 publishers before being published and winning the Edgar Award for Best First Mystery. He is best known as the creator of Alex Cross, the police psychologist hero of such novels as Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls.

Cross has been portrayed on the silver screen by Morgan Freeman. He also writes the Women's Murder Club series, as well as the Maximum Ride series, Daniel X series, the Witch and Wizard series, and the Middle School series for children. He has won numerous awards including the BCA Mystery Guild's Thriller of the Year, the International Thriller of the Year award, and the Reader's Digest Reader's Choice Award. He also made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2012 with his title I Funny: A Middle School Story and again in 2013 with his title's Middle School: Get Me Out of Here! and 12th of Never.

Biography of Ledwidge, Michael

Michael Ledwidge is a former New York city telephone man and the author of "The Narrowback", which he wrote while working as a doorman in midtown Manhattan. He went to the all-boys school Mount St. Michael Academy in the Bronx. He is a graduate of Manhattan College where he decided to major in English because the thing he loved to do his whole life is read. Ledwidge was born and raised in the Bronx, where he still lives.

After college Ledwidge worked as a doorman on 50th Street and Park Avenue. He wanted to become police officer but was frustrated when it became clear that he would have to wait years to realize his ambition. Working as a doorman was losing its charm, so I said to myself, you know what, if you want to be a writer nows the time. Ledwidge sent Patterson a copy of his manuscript - Narrowback to review.

That was the beginning of a successful writing relationship. James Patterson forwarded the manuscript to his agent and the book was soon published. He is the co-author of a series of some of James Patterson's most profitable books. He co-authored Now You See Her which came out in 2011 and made Publisher's Weekly Best seller list. Their title Tick Tock made The New York Times Best Seller list for 2011 and their title I, Michael Bennett made The New york Times Best Seller List for 2012.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2013-05-15)

Patterson and Ledwidge (Now You See Her) team up again for another fast-paced thriller. This time, however, instead of the usual man Cs. man conflicts, the authors pit man against nature. Animals all over the globe have begun to behave strangely, apparently coordinating attacks against humans, but when biologist Jackson Oz tries to explain this to the world, he is considered a crackpot. Only when the animal attacks become more frequent and the daughter of the U.S. president is killed does the government call in Oz to figure out why. Jay Snyder narrates, conveying the intelligence and self-deprecating humor typical of a Patterson protagonist, as well as the suspense and quick pace necessary to move the action along.

Verdict: Though a bit of a departure for Patterson, this work has enough of his usual storytelling elements to keep fans satisfied. Michael Crichton buffs also may enjoy.
