Poor Narration

The narrator is poor, too breathy, too many pauses, not a enjoyable experience.

The story as usual is great.

Perfect Patterson

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

Patterson Delivers

I didn't like the narrator. I found his attempts to give everyone different voices unnerving. I gave him a 3 and that's really generous. The story as usual was a page turner. Kept me wrapped up in curiosity until the very end.

Loved it! Almost perfect!

Because I'm a nerd, the only reason I gave the performance 4 stars is because the narrator mispronounced some words... like, maybe 6 words throughout the entire book, but it kind of bugged me each time. Otherwise, excellent in every way.

Went a little long.

Good story. Character development fell short on a few key characters. The biggest shortcoming is the ending. It felt like Patterson wanted to add in a plot twist but sacrificed the story to do so. The audio quality wasn't the best. Kramer did a great job narrating but it sounded like an old recording. Still worth the listen as this is after all part of one of the best mystery thriller series out there.

Kiss the Girls

Another great book by James Patterson! I love the Alex Cross books. Again, not for everyone but I love murder mysteries. And Alex always gets the bad guys!!!

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.

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!
