Fantastic follow up to The Big Bad Wolf! All of the twists and turns really leave you scratching your head until the last 20 pages. Definitely a page turner and a half!

"London Bridges" is another in James Patterson's Alex Cross series, and this book combines both the Wolf and the Weasel from earlier books.

In London Bridges, a Nevada town is wiped off the map by unidentified planes dropping bombs. Soon, the Wolf (a Russian Mafioso and terrorist) claims responsibility. Another Cross nemesis, the Weasel, is also seen near the scene. The Wolf soon demands that unless billions of dollars are paid in ransom and dozens of political prisoners are released, he will target four major international cities with nuclear bombs. Dr. Alex Cross is a former Washington, DC policeman who is now with the FBI. He is placed on the case because of his familiarity with both the Wolf and the Weasel. The FBI, CIA, MI5, Interpol, the French police and a host of other law enforcement agencies are all involved in trying to track down the killers, who are leaving way too many dead bodies in their wake. Cross travels across the US, as well as to London, Paris and Zurich--following the terrorists and tracking down clues. Unfortunately, the bad guys always seem to be one step ahead of law enforcement and it appears that they may be getting inside help.

Unfortunately, London Bridges is not without its problems. Having the Wolf and the Weasel together was way over the top. I wasn't quite sure why Patterson even included the Weasel, as his role is never really explained. The number of people the Wolf had working for him was totally unbelievable. And I think Patterson set a record for dead bodies. The ending was a stretch and left many questions unanswered.

I always enjoy Patterson's books, but I always keep in mind that these are typical beach books--short, fast-paced, exciting but not too intricate.

If you enjoy Alex Cross books, you will like this one. The bad guys are really scary and at times seem almost unstoppable. Of course, Alex prevails.

A great Alex Cross novel. I really like the short chapters. They really lead you to want to continue reading to find out what happens next.

If you like good mystery/thrillers such as Crais, Flynn, Connelly or Childs you want to skip this guy. I have noticed that he uses ghost writers now which is a good idea.

I do not usually post negative reviews but I feel a duty to warn folks off of this author.

It is rare that I can not finish reading a book. It was a chore to slog through this one. I found myself skipping entire chapters because I knew it was more drivel about Cross' beloved family that had no bearing on the story.

I really didn't care who the Wolf was or what happened to him by the end of this short story stretched into novel length.
