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 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.
