The Hunt for James Patterson goes on

Last Friday, in a publishing first, a global online interactive adventure was launched.

Author James Patterson, writer of the Alex Cross crime series, has gone missing. The culprit – a super villain known only as Jane Doe – has got in touch with his publishers and 3.8 million fans via his facebook page, and informed them that, as the world’s best (undiscovered) villain, only she deserves to be written about by James. If fans can’t crack her clues in seven days he will be forced to write solely about Jane killing off his classic detective characters forever more.

The adventure has united crime fighters Alex Cross, Lindsay Boxer, Michael Bennett and Jack Morgan – from James Patterson’s novels- for the first time ever

The heroes will aid the community in the hunt by offering their expert guidance and helping solve the clues. Fans will be helping each other too, collaborating on the clues and interacting with both Patterson’s characters and Jane Doe herself.

Fans that discover James Patterson’s final whereabouts will be in with a chance of winning fantastic prizes and one lucky investigator extraordinaire will be immortalized as a key character in a new James Patterson novel.
