As usual, Patterson keeps me up until the early hours of the morning! (Just ONE more chapter!!!!)
There were two storylines in this book and both were compelling. Although I think the child killer characater could have been a little more developed. It was a page turner and I had a hard time putting it down. However, I was quite disappointed in the ending. It felt contrived and rushed. Even with that it was a very solid and enjoyable read.
I enjoyed this book as much as the first 2.
This is the 3rd novel in the Alex Cross series. After reading several other novels in the series, I decided to go back and read some of the ones I have missed. Well, I thought this one was one of the better books in the series. It was written right after Kiss the Girls which I thought was one of Patterson's best. This was before he started using co-authors to help with the writing. It was also longer and more detailed than some of the later novels. Anyone, very readable and a page-turner as usual. This one actually dealt with a pair of nasty murderers on the loose - the titular Jack & Jill as well as a killer of young school children. Both are complex and lead Cross down the wrong path on several occasions. The Jack & Jill part of the story almost reminded me of Vince Flynn's Term Limits where some high level Government officials were killed to promote change in the government. I thought Limits was a superior story, but overall I would also recommend Jack & Jill.
This was a great book .....But I do like all of James Pattersons books I have read so far.A must read........
Gripping mystery/thriller as always. Third in the Series. I cannot say enough about James Patterson or the Alex Cross series.
An Alex Cross novel. Someone is killing innocent children in the poor section of Washington and someone is stalking and killing celebraties in the capital city. Are the two related? Alex is pulled off the murder investigation of the children and is forced to be an investigator with the FBI on the celebrity stalkings. He is saddened by the lack of concern over the murders of the children in the poor section. How does he make the compromise?
Abridged, but still a thrilling Patterson gem.
