really liked it
Read in June, 2012

Alex's Cross very talented ,very beautiful neice has been abducted from her college campus. Cross discovers this has been a trend across the United States. A few of the women have been found later brutally tortured and murdered. Finally one beautiful blonde actually escapes and aids Cross and the FBI in their search for the missing women.
I really liked this novel,and its'certainly one of the best of a traditional genre. But this would be womens libber wonders why.Amazing that only one of all these highly intelligent women can rescue themselves.Of course the beautiful blonde (why wasn't she brunnette or a red-head?) falls madly in love with Cross. The romance ends because they're too much alike.
The racial differences between these two characters are never mentioned,and yet Patterson refers to racism in the small southern town where he begins his search. I don't believe either character would be that unaware of the differences and other peoples reaction to them even if it mattered little to them. Sadly even highly intelligent and gorgeous people can be racist or at least know people who would make inter-racial dating problematic. Just a mention would have been so much more realistic.
