You can tell Patterson knows what it's like to live in the newspaper world, but with Under Your Skin, he's proven that he also can write one heck of a murder mystery. With a clever plot and characters you badly want to succeed, he is on his way to becoming a new era James Patterson.

- Josh Katzowitz, and author of Sid Gillman: Father of the Passing Game

Patterson’s storytelling feels as natural as James Patterson’s, and the short-chapter setup is the literary answer to Lay’s potato chips: you just want one more and before you know it, you’ve gone through the whole thing.

- David Bashore, Times-News, Twin Falls, Idaho

“Like a John Grisham novel, from the very start I was pulled right into the story and couldn't put the book down. It was as if I personally knew and cared about what happened to each of the main characters. Every chapter ended with so much excitement and suspense I had to continue to read until I learned how it ended, even though it kept me up until 3:00 AM.”

- Ray F., reader

Overall, I felt the writing to be rather weak, with the multitude of plot swings at times difficult to follow.
