“Michael Boatman gives a first-rate narration in this latest installment in the Alex Cross series. A second narrator, Tom Wopat, artfully portrays the homicidal maniac who plans to destroy Alex by destroying his family. Boatman captures the tension in the plot and keeps the listener engaged with the action. His portrayal of a bereaved Alex Cross--voice trembling with despair--will have listeners spellbound. And his total command of the story is like a zip line to Alex's hell. Though the symphony of terror isn't over at the conclusion of the audiobook, fans of Michael Boatman will revel in his delivery of this captivating thriller.” (AudioFile)
"[Patterson's] books don't pussyfoot around when it comes to the villains. These are bad, bad people... [I, Alex Cross] is political, with a lot of intrigue in high places." (Al Roker, The Today Show)
I read it about three times, loved every one...
The fact that the bad guys almost go to his family.
I am a guy so I don't really get too emotional about books, but I still enjoyed the action and mystery
Thank you for the final note at the end. You have a valid point about life. Sometimes things happen that you have to endure as you prepare for the next stage. Bravo!!!! Waiting with anticipation!
This is one half of a complete book -- The family is kidnapped, Alex is injured -- oh my, now let's spend $20 to find out what happens... What a rip off... A complete con to spend more $$. JP should be ashamed...
Not worth the cost
I am so in love with Alex Cross I don't know why I am complaining. He does not have super powers so I just need some of the stuff he goes through to just be a little more realistic.
I love the books...I love - love the fast pace but this one was just a bit much. How much can one person go through and be ok. This one just way to over the top but I gave the 3 stars because I know I will either order the print book or donwload the next audio book.
This was my first listen to a James Patterson Novel. I loved it. The story line and the change in voices of the narrators kept me engaged and attentive throughout the book. The plot was intriguing. Patterson's take on stalkers and serial killers kept me interested throughout.
I enjoyed this book more than I have the past several Alex Cross novels. The performances were great. The only thing I found distracting was the ominous background music when something goes wrong. That seemed a bit hokie to me.
Loved it. Great writing. Great storylines, truly enjoyed the complete cast involvement loved how it all tied together and the she helped Alex in the end wile she helped her self even is she might not have realized.
I love the story how it was put together buy mystery to another mystery to be solved in each case on his own personal ground, the type of motivation that keeps the reader mind on the story.
