Ah, the era when Patterson wrote all of his own books. This book is *so* many steps above the dreck he publishes now, yet still not the greatest. I think my problem with lies in the complexity of the evil plot. I didn’t really buy it in this context, perhaps because the book takes itself seriously. You could have this type of plot in an Ian Fleming or Clive Cussler novel, because it is delivered with a wink and a nod. Here, it’s meant as a "this could really happen" scenario. There’s just too many pieces and plots for everything to be controlled by one man (or woman). That being said, I was still entertained, and it was nice to visit with Alex Cross again. I may avoid most of Patterson’s newer books, but I expect I won’t be able to avoid finishing this series.
