EXCELLENT!!! I read this book in about 4 hours. I could not put it down. It is nonstop suspense and of course murder. I can't wait for the next Alex Cross book.

"Double Cross" is vintage Patterson. Definitely a thriller with a lot of twists and turns like most of his Alex Cross books. It also advances a plot line that Patterson has been reeling out over his last several Cross novels, which has the potential to sustain the Cross for as long as he is willing to write them. You cannot read "Double Cross" without feeling as if there are even bigger things yet to come from Cross and his creator.

Not as impressive as the first Alex Cross books like KISS THE GIRLS and ALONG CAME A SPIDER, but definitely better than CROSS, the last book.

Most of the characters are back to normal, acting more like themselves, and this book has a better mystery. In fact, it's a two-fold arc, with the devious and psychopathic Kyle Craig causing havoc from prison, and a new serial killer keeping Detective Brianna Stone, Cross's new love interest, busy with murders committed in the limelight.

It's a quick, okay read, but definitely not my favorite.

Excellent continuation on Alex Cross. Just when you think you got'em - WRONG! One detail a little farfetched (mask), but I guess anything is possible. Little hints about certain characters make you fear for them, but then he leads you right back to the situation at hand. Had to read it fast as daughter wanted to read it next! Looking forward to the next one!

Another good Alex Cross book. This book is not as good as the earlier Cross books, but it is much better than some of his recent co authored books. There are the usual murders, and twists and turns with lots of non stop action that you would expect from Patterson, as well as some surprises. A good book for a weekend read.

I guess I am on a James Patterson kick. This latest installment of Alex Cross has a killer who likes an audience. This is another fast reading story that concluded with not all the questions answered. so now I am on the hunt for Cross Country. I did enjoy reading this.

Suspenseful,intense,and thrilling!! I don't know how Patterson invents his demented characters, because the "bad guys" in this book mastermind situations that most people could never dream/nightmare of. This book deserved the title of "#1 NYT Bestseller" that it received.
