I was reluctant to read this book, as I am more used to the Alex Cross and Woman's Murder Club books. I had mixed feelings as i did not want patterson to ruin the crusades for me. But I am really glad I did, it was a riveting fast paced action thriller. I am 100% certain that it was not historically accurate and I am sure Patterson used every cliche in the historical fiction/ romance/thriller genre, but I don't care I enjoyed reading it. I loved that it was full of what i would class as filth and dirty jokes, guess I am a dirty girl at heart.
