Another great mystery to resolve with Dr. Alex Cross and his wife Detective Bree Rock. Actually you will have several scenarios running through the novel, enough to maintain anyone guessing and entertained concerning connections, twists, turns and what the final outcome just might be.
There are a series of murders taking place and not only one or two, but at times multiple murders of to twenty people up. They all seem to be by vigilantes attempting to clean up the town of the criminal undercurrent. That is except for the opening murder of Chief of Detectives Tom McGrath and a young lady that he has been seeing.
Who would want to kill the chief of detectives? Better issue, who wouldn’t? But the answer shall be hard to find, or maybe it will not. That’s why is it an interesting section of the plot line.
Next question, who’ll be the brand new Chief of Detectives? Alex Cross? That is the logical choice, but will it be the one that is made?
Last question, what do vigilanty killings, the murder of a chief of detectives and trafficking of individuals and the sale of narcotics all of the have in common?
The novel is engaging and will keep your interest as you try and solve a few of the mystery. The other thing is that it’ll make you take a step back and ask yourself, “What has occurred to the America that I grew up in?” And, “What can we do about any of it.” So, don’t simply read as a novel. Visit times and ask yourself some hard questions, such as, what would I do?
I am a long time lover of Alex Cross and found this reserve to be equally as good as all of the others. I also paid the insane cost of $15 for a kindle! Lots of suspense and action as usual. I read it too quickly and now have to wait permanently until I discover what happened to Sampson as referred to in Cross Eliminate, the bookshot. Cross Kill should come out not before this book now. However, we forgive Mr always. Patterson.
Patterson is the very best and Alex Cross can be an enduring fictional character. I really like this series —- great character types, creative, unique writing, and a plot that’s baffles the reader’s imagination. With Patterson what may appear like a logical ending to the reader is definitely always the exact opposite. I came across myself reading this late in to the night.
