Harris and Oates aren't for your average discount bookstore reader, both require a far more sophisticated individual leaning towards the intellectual who can appreciate the depth of their work which is more fictionalized reality than make believe heroics. Granted, Patterson and Patricia Cornwell as well as a whole busload of other wannabes writing in the genre are nothing more than hacks.
