What is it with authors these days? They write a decent spell-binding plot, and then lazily sign-off on a boiler-plate conclusion. Patterson has a decent plot that held me up until a chapter or so from the end, and then ends with a climax dependent on bad weather and no cell service. Too many writers seem to burn-out by the time they wrap-up their latest novel, and fall into this trap. Storms and no cell= totally predictable.

A very enjoyable Alex Cross novel but I do feel that there could have been more explanation with the whole Soneji cult episode.

Patterson's Alex Cross novels remain his best work. Cross is such an interesting, complex, and believable character and his cases are always unusual and challenging. His family and friends are integral parts of these stories and often add tremendously to the reader's enjoyment of the tale.

Keep the Cross books coming, Mr. Patterson. It will be interesting to see where Cross's career goes with his new career venture.

This is the next book in the Alex Cross series. Not my favorite of the series, but I still enjoyed reading it and look forward to seeing what happens to Alex Cross and his family next.

This bored me too much. I have only read like three other Alex Cross books so I was barely interested in all the side characters. You'll only appreciate this if you've been reading all the Alex Cross books and the entire series.

Happily, yet another Alex Cross novel was totally satisfying. I love all the family dynamics in this series; everyone is integral to the plot in one way or another. There is plenty of drama -- and all without extreme graphics so the imagination can fill in the blanks. I am aways looking for the next Alex Cross as soon as I turn the final page.

What't not to like about an Alex Cross story by James Patterson. Nothing! This one is a cut above though. Two great story lines going at once, leaving Cross frustrated and doubting himself and his future. And, as usual, lots of family engagement, though this time with one very interesting subplot that impacts one of the main story lines [notice no spoilers here]. There is cybercrime, courtroom drama, missing people, partnership issues, and at the end a surprising career move. Really a great read and so hard to put down, it will go fast. Wish Patterson would hurry and turn out the next great Alex Cross story. Enjoy.

I enjoyed this book and all Alex Cross books like to hear about this family and what they are envolved in at the time. Fast Read

A good read and glad to know that we actually have tech weens tuned into the dark side of the net. Glad to see the Soneji crowd put to rest and Alex taking on his new assignments. Wonder where old John Sampson and friends will wind up in the future??? Contract staff to the Cross Agency?
