James Patterson can keep us turning pages, but don't expect a satisfying conclusion from this book. Instead, imagine turning to the last page and finding "TO BE CONTINUED" in all caps. Although the last page doesn't read that way, it might as well. This is clearly the first in a series of at least one additional book that will feature Patterson's latest antagonist, a particularly nasty Russian Mafia boss who calls himself "the Wolf."

Another winner from James Patterson. Pulls you in and keeps you enthralled until the very last page! I've spent way too many late nights with James!! I just can't put his books down....and this one is no different! Always keeps you guessing!
Another page-turner from Patterson. He brings these characters to life! I couldn't put it down once I started it. And, true to Pattersons' writing he left me wanting more, getting to the next book in the series as soon as I finished this one. As I was reading Big Bad Wolf, I found myself wondering if people like this really exist in our world. I guess they must, or we wouldn't have need for FBI, HRT, etc.

Being an Alex Cross follower, I really enjoyed this book. I like the Alex Cross character as he is both riveting and is sensitive with his family. I wish they would make more films out of the James Patterson books as they are worth watching.
