The story is good and, as always, I get so angry at the antagonists and keep rooting for Alex to prevail. THE ENDING TO THIS BOOK IS HORRIBLE, apology from the author notwithstanding. Oh, and really--Alex's house is bugged again, James Patterson?? It was just bugged in the previous novel. Sloppy work.
The other thing I absolutely hate is that the Kindle version of the series always ends when the book shows about 90% done, just to have a sample of the next book. Stop that! I don't want to read part of a new book; I want the percentage read to apply to the book I bought for my Kindle.
