I haven't listened to this audio book - it was given to me and I have too short a commute to listen in the car which is where I usually listen to CD's. The back reads as follows:
A brillian criminal known only as the Mastermind orchestrates a series of bank robberies that are notable for their very precise demands - and their explosive violence when the demands are not met exactly. Detective Alex Cross takes on the case and recognizes that a particular kind of criminal mind is at work. But before he gets near identifying a suspect, the Mastermind pulls off the most outrageous kidnapping scheme in US history - and walks away witht he largest ransom ever paid.

But, the money is not enough. Alex Cross's investigation has gotten under the Mastermind's skin, and he makes it his personal goal to take revenge on Cross's entire team, one person at a time - before coming after Cross himself.

Amidst all this, Cross's relationship with his girlfriend Christine is falling apart because of her fears about his work, and his beloved daughter Jannie is hospitalized with unexplained seizures. The pressure rises on every front, utnil an explosive, shocking climax in which the Mastermind escalates his crimes to an unprecendented leve, and Alex Cross risks everything to stop him in time.

Read by Keith Davide and Jason Culp. This CD also includes a preview for Patterson's audiobook 1st to Die.

This was an awesome book! I liked the story line and the description of detail that Patterson gave. The only downfall is that there is a second half to the story in "Violets are Blue". Which I didn't know about when I picked this one up.

I just finished Roses are Red by James Patterson and it was a great read. I started the book on April 20th. The book was very interesting, I enjoyed out there was more in the book about his kids and their lives. There were some sad parts and surprises here and there as always. It was a good read like I said, some of his other Cross Series books were alot better than this one but I would give this one 3 out of 5 stars! I just started Violets are Blue.

I would recommend fans of the Alex Cross series not miss this book. It was a little bit of let-down after the previous 5 (I'm just reading them all now). That is, it was a let-down right up until the final chapters. The story had all the unexpected twists and turns, in fact, MORE twists and turns that perhaps any of the other books.

I love James Patterson and this is a good one!! In this heart-pounding new thriller, Detective Alex Cross pursues the most brilliant killer he's ever confronted, a mysterious criminal who calls himself the Mastermind. In a series of crimes that has stunned Washington, D.C., bank robbers have been killing bank employees and their families if the robbers' instructions are not followed to the letter. Alex Cross knows this is no ordinary criminal--the pathological need for control and perfection is too great. Cross is in the midst of a crisis at home--but the case becomes all-consuming as he learns that the Mastermind is plotting one huge, last, perfect crime.

Review -- Detective Alex Cross is called in to investigate a rash of robbery-murders in the area in this suspense filled novel by author James Patterson. A criminal calling himself the Mastermind is pulling off these crimes perfectly (to 9.9999 out of 10), using hired henchmen to do his dirty work for him while he reaps the benefits. Twists upon twists occur in this novel as the reader pores over each page eagerly, trying to find the killer even before the main character.

The Good: While not as fast-paced as 1st to Die, Roses are Red is a definite page-turner. The characters, as usual, are well-written and fully human in the reader's mind. The plot is thick, but not cumbersomely so, and the settings are vivid as ever.

Great book to listen to. Like all the books I've listened to in the Alex Cross series, it keeps you wanting to hear more. The narrators are good with changing voices to differentiate characters. This was my first cassette book, but it was still pretty easy to back track to re-listen to a portion I might have missed since I listen to the books while driving. Highly recommended. It also introduces a new nemesis....

Alex Cross, Patterson's detective hero, is back in a thriller that is guaranteed to hold his many fans spellbound. This time around, Cross' nemesis is the Mastermind, a cunning bank robber who recruits teams of criminals to do his dirty work while he orchestrates the crimes from the shadows. What makes the Mastermind especially frightening is that he takes the bank executives' families hostage in order to ensure compliance, and he kills in cold blood, seemingly at random. Cross is called in on the case, but he may have more than he can handle on his plate. His girlfriend has left him, his beloved daughter is in the hospital, and an old enemy has popped up. But Cross throws himself into the Mastermind case, aided by an attractive FBI agent named Betsey Cavalierre. Despite their resourcefulness, the Mastermind always seems to be a few steps ahead of them, even when the case seems to be coming together. Patterson keeps the pages turning all the way up to the jaw-dropping conclusion, which is sure to have readers eagerly awaiting the next Cross novel. Roses Are Red is far superior to Patterson's most recent novels and should impress readers who enjoyed his earlier Cross books, such as Along Came a Spider (1993) and Kiss the Girls (1995). This one is not to be missed.
