James Patterson has struck gold with his mystery/thriller series starring Dr. Alex Cross. Starting with Along Came a Spider and continuing through this effort, London Bridges, Alex has solved crime upon crime and come close to death a number of times. In this installment in the series, Alex is up against two of his worst adversaries: Geoffrey Shafer better known as the Weasel and the Wolf whose true identity no one knows. These two criminals have teamed up to hold four of the largest cities in the world ransom. Unless they pay over a billion dollars and release a number of political prisoners, the Wolf will kill thousands of people in these cities, including Alex’s hometown of Washington, D.C. To prove that he is serious, the Wolf engineers the annihilation of a small desert town, evacuating first to prevent casualties. When this doesn’t get the point across, he blows up the Queensboro Bridge in New York and a bridge in Paris. Alex is immediately brought in on the case and begins following a number of leads that lead him exactly nowhere. With numerous partners from the United States and various other countries, he desperately works to find the Wolf before their deadline expires and thousand of people die.
