Publisher's Summary

In broad desert daylight, a mysterious platoon of soldiers evacuates the entire population of Sunrise Valley, Nevada. Minutes later, a huge bomb detonates a hundred feet above the ground and lays waste to homes, cars, and playgrounds: a town annihilated in an instant.

Alex Cross is on vacation in San Francisco with his girlfriend, Jamilla Hughes, when he gets the call. The Russian supercriminal known as the Wolf claims responsibility for the blast.

Major cities around the globe are threatened with total destruction. The Wolf has proven he can do it; the only question is, can anyone stop him in time? Surveillance film of the blast reveals the presence of another of Alex Cross' most dangerous enemies, the ruthless assassin known as the Weasel.

World leaders have just four days to prevent an unimaginable cataclysm. Joining forces with Scotland Yard and Interpol, Alex fights his way through a torrent of false leads, impersonators, and foreign agents before he gets close to the heart of the crimes. Racing down the hairpin turns of the Riviera in the most unforgettable finale James Patterson has ever written, Alex Cross confronts the truth of the Wolf's identity, a revelation that even Cross himself may be unable to survive.

    "London Bridges"

    The Wolf at the door, again. The spinning of a tale. The spinning of the listener. So well done. Thoroughly engrossing. Many surprises. Very enjoyable.

    "London Bridges gets woofed down"

    I'm an avid James Patterson reader and I loved the book. I couldn't wait until the next chapter to "hear" what was going to happen next. It had my attention the entire time and the Wolf is a real , badboy , that kept me riveted to his exploits and the absolute ineptitiude of the FBI and police. Alex Cross is a great character to revolve a story about and his family .
    The sounds made the book more interesting than other books that are read like a funeral dirge. Don't even listen to the negative comments because if you like this series and characters , you will like this book.

    "Exciting and predictable"

    Well read which helped a lot. Patterson is running out of steam. Time to get a new hero or something. Not up to his previous thrillers.

    "Alex Cross -- International Man of Mystery?"

    I, too, have enjoyed a couple of Alex Cross mysteries before this, but I'm afraid this one just doesn't measure up. The plot and the "Wolf" character kept reminding me of the silly Austin Powers movies. I think even Mr. Patterson was in a hurry to complete it, as some serious incidents in the book were left largely unresolved, or at least poorly explained. Listen to "Along Came a Spider" instead; it's much better.

    "Made me want to jump off the bridge"

    Too bad that this story started with potential and quickly deteriorated into a Superman comic book. I kept waiting for Alex Cross to whip out his cape and fly.

    "London Bridges fell down"

    This is the worst Patterson book I have ever read. Did he really write this, or did someone else just follow the pattern and put Patterson's name on it? The plot is terrible and not believable. There is no character development. Not even worth spending any more time on the review...

    "Anti-climatic ending for the Wolf...."

    ...because endings to other characters within in this book and "The Big Bad Wolf" were much more exciting. Come on! All of this excitement surrounding the guy and an elaborate takedown for the dude that got his face changed, and then it was very short and unexciting for the true wolf to go down. Same with the Weasel. Thought both of their endings could have been a little more dramatic.

    "Action packed"

    Alex Cross is at it again. This story has so many twists and turns you must listen to it-- This is my first review after almost two years of listening audible.com. I enjoyed this book so throughly that it rates my effort to complete this review. This shows James Patterson is becoming better and better.
