While the book had an interesting premise, I had extreme difficulty getting past the stilted dialogue. Does the author think anyone really speaks this way? I think the narrator did what he could with the dialogue, but couldn't overcome the starched language. I would not order another book by Morrell.
I have listened to other Alex Cross books, and this one is a bit of a stretch. In this book, there are revelations made by the police Feds, CIA, etc.), that suddenly add characters without explaining where information came from. There are characters added right at the end of the story. It was hard to keep the interest in what could have been a strong plot line.
While the readers did a generally good job, there were very annoying sound effects with every chapter. All in all, not one of the better Cross efforts.
