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 good one which is the second of a trio featuring a villian who appears again in the third of the series. Read "Pop Goes the Weasel" first, then this one, and then "London Bridges".

I was very disappointed in this book. There was no building of suspense and all the characters lacked personality.

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.

Nothing better than curling up with Alex Cross and trying to figure out what is going to happen next. You know it's coming, but you don't know when, where, or how! This one is no different. Great author, just keep 'em coming!

In the midst of his FBI training, former Police Detective Alex Cross is called in to investigate The Wolf, an ex-KGB agent turned master criminal, with links to the Russian Mafia, who uses the Internet to fulfill the fantasies of some of the sickest sociopaths in recent popular fiction. Each of these well-heeled villains pays megabucks to have his current obsession, male or female, stalked, kidnapped, and delivered--to him. As the complex plot unfolds, narrators Peter J. Fernandez and Denis O'Hare offer a variety of stunning characterizations. Alex has clarity and energy, The Wolf is vicious and sadistic, and the cyber-weirdos, particularly Mr. Potter and the Art Director, are despicable. Patterson's plot, rife with imprisonment, torture, rape, and murder, gives Fernandez and O'Hare plenty to sink their teeth into.

FBI agent, Alex Cross, battles the ruthless and powerful predator killer known as "The Wolf". Across the country men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight, then completely disappearing. Not taken for ransom, but rather bought and sold. An unforgettable thriller.

Alex Cross' family is in terrible danger--at the same time that his new job with the FBI brings him the scariest case of his career. A team of kidnappers has been snatching successful, upstanding men and women right before their families' eyes--possibly to sell them into slavery. Alex's knowledge of the D.C. streets, together with his unique insights into criminal psychology, make this mindbending case one that only he can solve--if he can just get his colleagues to set aside their staid and outdated methods. With unexpected twists and whiplash surprises, this is another brilliantly irresistible novel from America's bestselling suspense writer.
