“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)
DO NOT GET THIS BOOK TILL THE FOLLOW UP IS AVAILABLE, AND MAYBE NOT EVEN THEN. If you dislike paying full price or 2 credits for half a book or double paying for one book, then don't. the book ends at a good halfway point with nothing resolved. the author clams this is to give us a opportunity to learn how to live with tragedy... I see it as nothing more than a gimmick that I am absolutely not a fan of. buyer be warned it's a" cliff hanger", and if you hate that as much as I do, just wait.
I listen to a book a day just about. I am 49, I love mystery, thriller, true crime. G.Guidall best reader for me.
JP makes enough money that he needs not force us to buy the next Cross book to see what happens.
End the book or give credit for free book!!!
So upsetting that James Patterson is so money hungry. What a slap in the face to his fans. I will for sure never buy another book by JP. Bootleg, copy, download and share all his work is the word many of us are spreading on this greedy selfish person. What comes around goes around James, lost all respect for you.
I didn't read the printed version so I can't answer this.
I enjoyed the multiple plots in the novel. Just when one crime is solved, there is more going on. Who can you trust? Just when the characters think they have the answers, they are wrong.
My favorite character is Bree Cross because she is a strong woman who doesn't give up.
The book is a cliffhanger that has me ready for the next installment.
So of the Cross series are predictable, but this one really got my attention. I enjoyed it and I am ready to read the next book in the series.
Say something about yourself!
Haven't read the print.
The wonderful interlacing of two "sets" of villains.
Yes, but the voices were terrible on some points.
When Alex needed someone and she was there....
I thought the book was good. I was beginning to worry that the ending would be rushed and full of holes, then ..... What an interestingly frustrating, tantalizing, maddening concept for a story plot. It took me minute or two to get past the shock, then i had to laugh and applaud the concept. Enjoy the book it is worth the investment. The language is not so foul you cannot listen and the storyline is excellant.
Probably one of the best Alex Cross Novels in a long time. This one took me completely by surprise. It takes Alex Cross to the darkest place in his life but no spoilers here - you'll have to read it to find out. Enjoyed more details about the kids and moved along at a nice pace - keeps you guessing to a point. If you haven't read any books in the Alex Cross series I think you can pick this one up without being totally lost though after this one you will want to read all of the others. Very much enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next...you'll see why once you read it :)
I am always waiting for the next book to come out - which never seems quick enough... but I also hate a rushed story - that doesn't make me feel satisfied at the end.. This wasn't my most favorite Cross story, but it was right up there... The narrators were very good - the story was pretty good - the mystery kept me reading, and the ending will once again keep me waiting for the next!!! Don't make us wait too long!!
I loved the book and the narrators. I have listed to all the Alex Cross novels and have never been disappointed. I fell in love with all the characters many years ago and would be very disappointed if the series ended.
Yes, it was suspenseful and the ending was a shocker.
The suspense. My heart broke with the kidnapping and murders.
No I have not.
Yes. Couldn't wait to get back to it.
This story was terrifying I don't remember any other Cross book being so scary. The ending was a complete shock. I didn't expect the story to end with a cliffhanger.
