I would not. It was written in a very simplistic manner (which the horrible narration seemed to emphasize) and was incredibly predictable. I didn't have another book downloaded or I would have stopped dead in my tracks. I stuck it out - no surprises!
When I heard the first few lines, I knew the author should not have narrated this story. I actually think her narration made the predictable, simplistically crafted story worse. A better narrator could have improved the experience. As it was, you found yourself cringing at the narration more than the story.
Yes, Kyle Craig is back, but also James Patterson is back. Over the past few years, Patterson has been penning a growing number of books with co-authors. He's also been turning them out in mass quantity.
He seems to be back to normal in the latest Alex Cross novel (Double Cross). He's dating a new girl who is part of local law enforcement, and as we knew it would, his vow to stay away from the nasty guys didn't last long. Though his private practice is doing well, he is drawn into one of his new girlfriend's cases in a big way. Faster than you can say "Nana Mama", Alex is back in the know at the Washington PD and consulting on the latest mass murders.
About this time, his former buddy and convicted serial killer Kyle Craig makes an abrupt and unscheduled departure from maximum security and begins to reek his own special kind of havoc. We knew that Kyle was a bit miffed at Alex for bringing him in, and the Mastermind is back in action and consulting himself - with the new Washington area killer.
If you liked early Patterson, you'll really like this new one.
