    It's Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross has been called out to catch someone who's robbing his church's poor box. That mission behind him, Alex returns home to celebrate with Bree, Nana, and his children. The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again - a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Youngsters may like it more than I did. Just not that challenging, but it was entertaining though.

    Yeah, it was OK. Entertaining enough, somewhat predictable though.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was great, as usual in all ways.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It sparks family emotions, mainly.

    What disappointed you about The Anaconda Complex?

    Like nothing I've ever read. This is crap to the upmost degree, sorry author. Not worth the minimum stars in step one, but they require that you put down at least one.


    What could Bryan Cassiday have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Burned it before he burned me and countless others. How did this book get any positive ratings at all?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Its impossible to detract for obvious garbage.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, and more disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    This guy belongs in book writers purgatory. No, I guess I went too far. He ain't no freaking writer.
