Review

"Alex Cross remains James Patterson's signature character, a man who virtually owns the phrase 'high octane' and this outing is no exception." -- Michael Conaghan Belfast Telegraph --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

More About the Author

It is no surprise that in January, 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having "transformed book publishing," and that Time magazine hailed him as "The Man Who Can't Miss." Recently, NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams profiled Patterson's prolific career, AARP named him one of the "50 Most Influential People Who Make Our Days a Little Brighter," and Variety featured him in a cover story highlighting his adventures in Hollywood.

In 2013, it was estimated that one-in-five of all hardcover suspense/thriller novels sold was written by James Patterson, his books have sold over 300 million copies worldwide, and he holds the Guinness record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. And his success isn't based solely on thrillers like the perennially popular Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Michael Bennett series. Patterson is now also the current bestselling author in the young adult and middle grade categories.

He's been called the busiest man in publishing, and that's not just because of his own books. For the past decade, James has been devoting more and more of his time to championing books and reading. From the James Patterson Pageturner Awards, to his website ReadKiddoRead.com, to his College Book Bucks scholarships and his regular donations of hundreds of thousands of books to schools here in the states and troops overseas (see interviews on Fox & Friends, The Dennis Miller Radio Show and CNN.com), Patterson has passed on his passion of books and reading and supported those who do the same. Jim personally funded a major ad campaign re-printing a recent opinion piece on CNN.com about how it is our responsibility to get our kids reading. The ad has run in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and USA Today. Those ads are a call to action to parents to make their kids reading a top priority; and were featured by USA Today here. Patterson believes that we cannot rely on schools, teachers or the government to get our kids reading; only parents can make this crucial change in the reading habits of our kids. Here are links to some interviews on his first-ever dual lay down (two books, one for parents and one for kids, in one day): AOL's You've Got, NBC's "Today Show" with Hoda and Kathie Lee, USA Today and Family Circle, NBC's "Today Show" with Al Roker, as well as an interview with AARP.

The only book series I have ever followed continually has been author, James Patterson's, "Alex Cross" novels. From the moment I picked up my 1995 paperback, "Kiss the Girls", Alex Cross has been my all time favorite hero. I have read every single "Alex Cross", novel, that I have actually grown up with his family and feel like part of them. I am glad Nana Mama, is still around, watched him lose the love of his life, seen Janelle and Damon, grow up to be excellent teens, watched little Alex, be dropped off, then ripped away by his mother again from their lives, absolutely love his new wife Bree, and their new additon to the family, Ava...........

What draws me constantly back, is that Alex Cross, homicide detective, ex FBI Profiler, and highly trained psychologist, through out all of his novels, the author portrays his character as a grounded, humble everyday family man, that lives a normal life as possible. He thinks calmly before he reacts, has respect for the dead, and always gets the killers............. But this time he is up against two very, evil, psychotic, killers that will give him no time to breathe.............

Meet Elijah Creem, highly sought out, plastic surgeon, who has a sick, perverted taste for young girls. Once arrested, his life the way he has known it will never be the same and he is out for revenge. Now he has recruited a demented partner, Joshua, that joins him to play out his sick, deadly, killing game......

Dead bodies start dropping all over Washington. For the very first time in his career, Alex won't be able to think, as he races from one murder site to another. Will Alex and partner Sampson be able to solve the puzzle and catch these serial killers in time......

On top of everything else, someone is watching.

I am a big mystery fan and have enjoyed this author but not now. I felt that most of the action was gratuitous and did not enhance this story at all but rather hit you in the face. Very, very weak story which the author tried to cover with splashy sex and violence scenes that just did not work.
If it wasn't on my kindle I would have thrown it away. Now, I would like to get it off my kindle.
Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
