Shogun is the only transfer I think came close and that was because the author wouldn't give up his rights.
I like Cornwell. The information is interesting but gory. I have four of her books here. I prefer her latest books to her early ones. I don't really like Scarpetta as a person. Though her character seems to aging into a better person. lol
Patterson, have no clue where in the plot line this current book is. I'm not a big fan of Patterson. I've read a number and may have more in MN. But if I were cleaning out my books - his would be tossed. I only have one here. His writing style annoys me. I like his characters but dislike his plots.
