it was ok
Read in December, 2008

I'm still enjoying the Alex Cross series, and this one had a good adventure to it, but something JP is doing lately is really starting to bug me. It's his Public Service messages. It was horrible in "Maximum Ride: Final Warning" (Global Warming, OH NOES! Save the penguins!!!), and it started to creep into this book as well (Nigeria is a horrible place to live, OH NOES! Go tell the world about the corrupt police force and intolerable living conditions!!!) I really wish Patterson would stick with just writing an entertaining story and leave out the part where he tries to educate his audience about world issues. I read to escape and this isn't helping!
