#9: Chase by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge

A man appears to commit suicide jumping from a New York skyscraper, but cop Michael Bennett quickly learns that he might not have jumped, and may have been living under an assumed name, in Chase from James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge.

Bennett learns that the mystery corpse had ties to various levels of military and government, making things more complicated and leading Bennett to a remote Pennsylvania encampment.

This is in the Bookshots line from James Patterson and various co-authors, slender novels with short chapters and very quickly-paced plots.  I grabbed a handful of these with Christmas money from Books-A-Million in Muncie, Indiana at two-for-one prices.  Stacking the four I bought together makes it about as tall as the average beach read.  And the two I have read so far have that tone.

Chase was brisk and enjoyable, for thriller fans who are eager for a quick read.
