About this deal

The kidnapper, a known mass murderer and serial killer named Thierry Mulch, is living under a false identity, stalking and infiltrating the home and life of Cross. I have not read many of the Alex Cross novels but James Patterson has such a fluidity to his writing that It did not feel like I was reading a book late in a series.

To summarize: I love Patterson's machine gun writing style, but find the premise of the Alex Cross series tired and unrealistic, i.Patterson still has a knack for writing fast-paced, engaging thrillers that have readers gripped from the first page. I don’t tend to read any of the Paterson/any other novelist co-authored books as they don’t appeal to me as much and I don’t hear as much positive feedback. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.

C. Alex Cross's wife, Bree Stone, must either solve the case or lose her position as the city's newly elevated chief of detectives. His family, which are usually an integral part of the books, include: Nana Mama (his 90-something Grandmother who raised him); Damon (his eldest son, away at College); Jannie (his daughter, in high school); Ali (his youngest son (just starting school); Bree (his second wife, we don’t count Christine, who was his fiancé and Ali’s mother), John Samson (his best friend since they were 10, and a fellow police officer), and Ava, a young street person who they wanted to adopt.

When a string of young, blonde women go missing, the investigation leads Cross and Sampson to the most depraved, darkest corners of the internet, where murder is just another form of entertainment. In broad desert daylight, a mysterious platoon of soldiers evacuates the entire population of Sunrise Valley, Nevada. I would have love to have picked back up on more of the sub plots, it particularly the Cross children responce to what had happen to them back in their enviroments ie. As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes-one that may alter the fate of the entire country. As Alex and Siegel battle over jurisdiction, the murders continue-and they won't stop until Cross and his family are gone for good.
