This is the tenth in Patterson's Detective (now FBI special envoy) Alex Cross series, and from the outset, we would surmise that if you are not a faithful follower of the previous nine, you will be lost. First, both central villains are reprised from earlier books (the "Weasel" from "Pop Goes the Weasel"; and the "Wolf" from "Big Bad Wolf"), but it's not so clear how or why they are in cahoots. The Weasel in specific gets bumped off so...more
The Villian this time: the bad ass Russian dude - the Wolf.
The Good - As usual I knocked this book over in a few days. Couldn't put it down!! Crazy arse twists and turns!!
The Bad - The fact that this badie had like 15 different people posing at him. (view spoiler)[He killed 'The Wolf' 100 times before figuring out he wasn't the wolf after all (hide spoiler)]. This book had seriously epic proportions that I'm shocked lil ole Alex Cross pretty much solved on...more
And yet I read the whole thing, and am even considering reading another Patterson novel on my shelf. Whatever Patterson sucks at, he's got the "What happens next?" factor down PAT.
The sentence in the synopsis: "Then, in the most unforgettable finale James Patterson has ever written, Alex Cross confronts the truth of the Wolf’s identity – a revelation that e...more
Although Cross has had a lot of experience controlling situations like these, the suspect is in control; he tells he F...more
Thank god I got it at a library, since I cringe at the thought of a dollar of mine greasing the gears of the Patterson book-writing machine. The writing is this book, the 10th in his Alex Cross series, is god-awful, the plotting lazy, and the characters thin as balsa. And so many exclamation points!
But to his credit, Patterson seems unembarassed (sp?) so th...more

This was another classic James Patterson book. Each chapter is like 200 words, there is constant action, and very little character development. I would rate this a 2.5 if Goodreads allowed it. I give it 3 stars only because it is such an easy read and suspenseful enough where I kep...more
