    Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, DC, Police Department when an unknown shooter gunned down his wife, Maria, in front of him. Alex's need for vengeance was placed on hold as he faced another huge challenge - raising his children without their mother. Years later, Alex has left the FBI and set up practice as a psychologist once again. His life finally feels like it's in order. Then his former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. Now Cross must go on the hunt for the most cunning killer he has ever faced....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Patterson's novels tend to follow the same pattern. If you like that pattern, you'll enjoy this. The performance is adequate, but not great, so listening doesn't really add to the experience. If you have a vivid voice in your head, reading this one might be better.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No surprises to spoil.


    What three words best describe Peter J. Fernandez and Jay O. Sanders ’s performance?

    Adequate, distinct character


    Did Alex Cross inspire you to do anything?

    nope

    Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we're the number one nation at being the best at greatness. But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can't exchange it because we're 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around - we don't make anything anymore, we've mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If your politics lean to the left, and if you are a big fan of sarcastic humor, you'll enjoy this audio book. I wouldn't recommend this to all my friends, especially those who's politics are to the right of center or who take things literally too much. All in all, not for everyone, but if you fit the target, you'll love it.
