I’m not so sure about this one. I hope it surprises me. I’ve read and enjoyed only a couple of James Patterson’s novels, but know of his large following. I have no-doubt that Tyler Perry and Edward Burns will give good performances, it’s Matthew Fox that gives me some concern. I just don’t see him pulling this off.
