About this deal

I really enjoyed the mystery in this one, and loved the moment at the end when we find out who really was behind it all. The print is almost 400 pages (8:22 Hr for audio) of cat and mouse action-packed style crime thriller.

And to top it all off, Cross is receiving more texts from his personal adversary, the elusive “M”, who taunts him and has set his sights on taking him out for good. But before we get there, we have a lot to unpack as Cross and Sampson are not the book’s only stars. Me and my husband are huge readers of JP and have probably read almost all of them now, over the many years.I’ve lost touch with Patterson’s writing—his own, not his collaborations—for quite sometime and this one felt a bit different from the only other Alex Cross novel I’ve read, Along Came a Spider. Cross is his usual go-getter self, swooping in to help as best he can, while also rescuing his wife from danger as she investigates something over in Europe.

While some authors can use their name to sell a book, I cringe at that, as the reader is left wondering if the quality is there. Tiny chapters, sharp dialogues, crisp descriptions and the endearing characters from Cross’s and Sampson’s families—Nana Mama, Ali and Willow especially—make this one a lightning fast, fun read.

In the twenty-seven years following, there have been some good (and excellent) adventures and some less-than-stellar outings along the way, but I generally looked forward to the end of each year when another Alex Cross adventure was published. He has written many other number one bestsellers including collaborations with President Bill Clinton and Dolly Parton, stand-alone thrillers and non-fiction. Throughout the entirety of the Alex Cross series, Patterson has consistently included the strong bond of friendship and love, and this continues with Fear No Evil. Lots of characters and I sometimes had to re-read to figure out where everyone belonged but of course Patterson is worth it.It did pick up and settle in for the last 75 pages or so, when Alex and Sampson were trekking through the Montana wilderness. Caught in a web of assassins, Alex Cross enters the final battle with the all-knowing genius who has stalked him and his family for years.
