When I was almost to end of book it had so far had nothing to do with killing Alex. Poor title choice, in my opinion. And it felt like 3/4's of the way through the story, Patterson decided he'd written enough pages so just hurried up and ended the major mystery in the book. He tied up most of the loose ends before finishing, but it just seemed rushed to me-- yep, poorly written as I've heard lots of reviewers say of Patterson's later attempts.
This was not one of Grisham's best novels, but it is written in a way that we continue to love Alex Cross. It seems that after 17 book, we'd be bored with Washington, DC crimes, but we have grown attached to Nana Mama, Sampson, and who could forget when little Alex was born. Just a delightful series.
What I liked most about this story is that it added more depth to the inner mind of Alex Cross. While dealing with his family welcoming a new addition, Alex was passionate and expressed the emotions of a normal man.
Andre Braugher and Zach Grenier were great. Grenier's voice was dark and grave when needed and the production was overall excellent.
