The latest installment in Patterson's Alex Cross series is one that really took me by surprise. I remember with the last Cross book I vowed I would go back to listen to the audiobook but as it happened I got the book first and I really liked it. A high profile mystery that brings back all the characters the reader has come to love a while back and that truly vanished into the background lately.

The story builds up great but the revelation of who the killer is, is a bit of a letdown, not exciting enough and it seems everything Alex learns in his case was handed to him. Also there are a few points hardly to believe, especially when it comes to the cover ups.

In the end the novel is better than the past ones. It left me wanting more Cross novels.

A much needed improvement over the last book. This had to help save the career of Alex Cross for the fan base that is following. It is getting to the point though that Alex needs to hang up his gun. There can only be so much one man can do to fight crime in DC. Unless he is like Brett Favre.

Alex Cross is confronted with a couple of family issues as he tries to solve another case. The plot takes a while to build up and the climax is resolved in 50 pages or less. This book is good if you like Patterson. After reading the Cross series, this book is a little disappointing because the story development is long and the ending comes in from nowhere. The question of "where did that come from?" is asked as one nears the end of the book. Patterson usually wraps up his books rather well but this is wrapped up too quickly and not as clean as previous books.

As with all the other Alex Cross books, this was great. Can't wait to get the next one to read.

It has been a while since I've read an Alex Cross novel. Has it really been 16 of them?

It was a very fast book and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I was a little disappointed that Bree took a back seat to the action but still her role was pivotal. I also miss the interaction between Cross and Sampson. I did manage to figure out who the killer was before the end but it does keep you guessing.

Good read. I know the 17th book is out already so I better with the program and read that one too.
