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!
Looking to spend more time with his family, Alex Cross has left the D.C. police for the FBI, swapping his near-legend stature for the rank of rookie. Even so, his reputation precedes him. When the kidnapping of an exceptionally beautiful, well-heeled mother of three is followed by a similar abduction, Alex is moved to the top to work with Monnie Donnelley, a violent-crimes specialist who expects the worst. But neither Alex nor Monnie is prepared for the information brought to them by Lili Lynch, a 14-year old computer whiz who has broken into "The Wolf's Den." Lili "heard" men, awful men, chatting about their "acquisitions", purchased from a Russian known as The Wolf. While it's natural for young Lili to be shocked and terrified by what she's learned, Alex knows better; he's beaten too many monsters at their twisted games. But this time could be different. So far, no one who's been bitten by this Big Bad Wolf has lived to tell the tale.
