Critic Reviews

"Tough to put down...ticks like a time bomb, always full of threat and tension." (Los Angeles Times)

"A ripsnorting, terrific read." (Larry King, USA Today)

"Patterson hit the ball out of the park with his last go-round, the bestselling Along Came a Spider. Kiss the Girls is even better." (Dallas Morning News)

Perfect Patterson

Great narration. Typically Alex Cross drama...fun, exciting, suspenseful. Totally entertaining. Give it a shot. It was a great listen.

Great story but not a Kramer fan yet.

There is just something cheesy about the narrator's accent and voice interpretation. Like some dime store novel character. Just my personal opinion.

Performance shortcomings

Captivating story. The reader wasn't as good as the one for Along Came a Spider. it was distracting that he didn't pronounce the character name the same. voice not as suspenseful.

exciting!

love this series, bit I wish Michael Kramer had listened to the first one. Michael pronounces some if the characters names completely different than the first book. threw me off a little.

Edge of your seat

If you love a good cop vs. evil story, this book is meant for you!! I love books that keep the identity of the villain a secret until the very end. Once revealed it is like..... OMG!! yes! James Patterson is a master at writing stories that hold you to the very end. Root for the good guy with twist and turns could be this title! Definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves a good thriller, action, heart wrenching, and gasp out look read!

Loved it

I've read most of this series years ago, certainly my favorite book series. since I dont have time to read much I figured I'd try audiobooks and listen while at work and in the car. Glad I did. a

This was my favorite James Patterson yet!

I do wish the narrator would have stopped mispronouncing the name of the main evil character that was in a prior book with the same main character but there were so many references to him throughout the book

Dated crime story circa 1995

Hate to be critical, but story is long on gory rape details and weak on actual crime methodology. Narrator would be great in different venue but does not have a good African American voice (which Alec Cross is, by the way).,,not Patterson’s best in my view.,.

very good

i remember seeing the movie when it came out and liked it. and now im glad i read the book. i always love working with my headphones in and listening to audiobooks but every once in awhile i come across a book like this one where the narrator speaks softly and its hard to hear him when your running around doing stuff
