Wow. Did this make any sense to anyone? Was it just me or did the dates used in the book just not match up? It starts out in 1980 with characters that get killed off during the book in 1979? Please explain this to me if there is an explanation. Also, what was the motivation behind hiring these people to carry out all these murders anyway? That was never clear or explained. And lastly, what was up with the ending? Maybe I am slow, but it made no sense to me at all!

Read this in one day while sitting on the beach! What a confusing ending-I had to read the last few pages twice since the characters were confusing-who were the "good"/"bad" guys? Patterson has come a long way as a writer since this book was originally published in 1977.

Reasonable story idea but very poorly put together. Got some free used Patterson books from a friend, "The Thomas Berryman Number" was a similar type book about crime, but much better than "Season of the Machete".
Guess Patterson was still learning with this book.

Patterson writes great stuff that keeps you on the edge of your seat. This one seems to cheat. The dates set up a mystery that is not only not resolved but becomes contradictory........Jim.... HELP.... what is going on in this book

Season of the Machete was a bit disappointing. It might be a fine light read, but don't expect anything on the level with Jack and Jill, Kiss the Girls, or Along Came a Spider
