Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arriving home disillusioned from the Crusades, Hugh De Luc discovers that his village has been ransacked and his wife abducted by knights in search of a relic worth more than any throne in Europe. Only by taking on the role of a jester is he able to infiltrate his enemy's castle, where he thinks his wife is captive.

With the unstoppable pace and plot of a page-turning Alex Cross novel, The Jester is a breathtakingly romantic, pulse-pounding adventure — one that could only be conjured by the mind of James Patterson. Everyone who has ever hoped for good to defeat evil or for love to conquer all will not be able to stop turning the pages of this masterful novel of virtue, laughter — yes, laughter — and suspense.

Review:

"[W]hether the majority of words are contributed by Patterson or Gross, this terrific new novel is prime Patterson all the way....From start to finish, this is supersmart popular fiction, slick yet stirring, packed with colorful details of medieval life, bursting with unforgettable characters and clever tropes and themes. Patterson's fans will adore this one." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Replete with his trademark short chapters and surprising twists and turns, Patterson, along with coauthor Gross, keeps the excitement levels high in this rousing adventure tale." Kristine Huntley, Booklist

Synopsis:

With the unstoppable pace and plot of his page-turning thrillers, The Jester is a breathtakingly romantic, pulse-pounding adventure set in the Middle Ages — one that could only be conjured by the mind of international bestselling author Patterson.

You are about to begin the most thrilling James Patterson novel yet. Hugh De Luc returns from the Crusades to discover that his terrifying nightmare has just begun.

The Jester by James Patterson is a great read. The main character Hugh, a french peasant in the time of the first crusades, takes on the powers that be to avenge the death of his family. Very good story, the only reason I didn't give it five stars was a nitpicky one: the characters talked like they live in modern times and not the middle ages.
Despite that it was enjoyable and worth reading.
