I thoroughly enjoy reading about Doctor Detective Alex Cross. James Patterson certainly does not shy away from the gruesome details which is what really makes this a great, shocking mystery.

A murderous duo, who've dubbed themselves Jack and Jill have come to Washington to kill, kill, kill. At the same time, there is an elusive and brutal killing of a young girl In Alex Cross' neck of the woods, and yet all of the attention is focused on the celebrity killings of Jack and Jill, and that certainly doesn't sit will with the newly dubbed Truth School killer. So Alex serves double duty in this installment which follows two cases (which claim to be connected but really aren't which makes the book a tad disjointed).

This book does inspire some real fear because it occasionally alternated POVs to the multiple killers and Alex Cross. I don't read too many of these thriller types, but the idea of seeing things from a psychopath's point of few is something that Patterson does well.
