I have read/listened to several of Patterson's books and especially am fond of the Cross series.. I found the narration exceptional and the story line captivating.. even though I missed the previous book Mary Mary I backed up to listen to it.. there is where I filled in the gaps.
Kudos to James Patterson!

Mushy dialog and sterotypical characters, combined with jerky plot, makes this a trudge through sludge. I want my money back.
I believe I've read all of the books with Alex Cross as the main character and they are getting less interesting each time. This plot is ridiculously unbelievable as it has the worst villain ever. I hope we can get back to ordinary mysteries without the bizare nonsense. I really don't recommend it.
To each his own I suppose. This was my first Alex Cross book. If this is bad (as others indicate) I can't wait to listen to others. I found the book to be well written and the story line as believable as most other crime novels. The ending could have a bit more suspense, but I liked it the same. Narration was one of the best I have heard so far. This best seller is worth the investment and time. Cheers!
I just loved finding out who killed Cross's wife. As always Patterson keeps you interested with his suspense style... I highly recommend it. I rate it with 5 stars.
