Alex Cross, working with the FBI, CIA and Interpol try to stop the Weasel and the Wolf from bombing places. This is a page turner from beginning to end.

I've read a few novels written by the author James Patterson and for me this one wasn't on par to the previous I've read. Its action is nonstop (literally from the very first page to the last) and to be honest, it was exhausting!
I read novels to relax god dammit!
Now don't get me wrong, I love a bit of action just as much as the next guy but jheeez after reading about 200 pages I was praying for a couple of chapters that just allowed Alex Cross to sit down and have a cup of tea! He must of been thirsty!!
Overall the story wasn't good enough to captivate me throughout and I was just slugging through it to complete it as I hate starting a book and leaving it incomplete.
If you like nonstop action (and I do mean nonstop!) This one's for you.
*Moves on to the Michael Bennett series*

Patterson fans will like this novel but I felt it was just O.K. A complicated plot with a master mind and a psychopath who holds four countries in his grasp and nobody even knows who he is. Really? Far too unbelievable with too many characters. It was reasonably entertaining but certainly not Patterson's best and possibly his worst.

I can say it wasn't a horrible book, but it was far from one of Patterson's best. As a reader, I could tell the words just weren't flowing, the author was trying hard and barely kept the book together

You just have to love James Patterson, however with this book he went way off course. Just not believable. Come on Mr. Patterson, lets write something more original.

A decent read about Alex Cross as he travels the world looking for the Wolf.. some excitement especially in the beginning, but nothing over the top for the rest of the book.. part of a series, so without reading the previous books, feel like you are missing something..
