Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever encountered: a predator known only as the Wolf.
Alex Cross' first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks like a shadowy figure known as the Wolf, a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime, is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves.
Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive.
As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home, too. His ex-fiancie, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life-and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.
Full of the unexpected twists and heartrending surprises that James Patterson delivers better than any other suspense writer alive, The Big Bad Wolf is an unforgettable thriller.
"Vastly entertaining." (Publishers Weekly)
"Phillips proves himself once again to be a wildly creative storyteller." (Booklist)
I was not happy with the addition of music to the reading. I felt it was not necessary and at times, it was loud enough to cover the reader. Eliminate it and let the story tell itself. Save the music for a film or television production.
I had never experienced any auto book before this one, however, during a road trip, decided to try this one. I have read James Patterson's books before, but never one done like this. I was lucky to stumble upon this specific narrator. I tried samples of other books and did not care for the readers. The Russian accent, the almost Morgan Freeman like way he spoke when reading, kept me alert and completely captivated. I loved the story line, and have grown attached to the Alex cross series. I will probably keep one audio book on hand as well as one to read from now on!
I have never gotten a bad novel from him. This is one of the best.
I love this story! I enjoyed that I was not able to predict the story. Alex Cross has a scary understanding of the criminal is out of this world. This is a fast moving book. Never a dull moment.
Please stop the sappy, distracting music it adds nothing to the story! It just makes one think the story is poor and needs beefing up. But it was not! I liked the story but could hardly get past the music, sound effects and crickets!
Well told, well written but unfinished. This is the second incomplete novel I have read by Patterson. It was a good story but I, personally, am not satisfied with an incomplete story. ....sad.
I received this audible edition for free for my honest review.. in true James Patterson style you will not be disappointed.. gritty and suspenseful.. very easy to follow.. thanks for the great novels
struggled to finush...moving on to the next book in the alex cross series blah, blah, blah...
Great book. One of his best. Great story. Love Alex Cross. Never gets old. Great for long trips.
I have enjoyed other Alex Cross books but this one was a let down. There wasn't much suspense, the plot about the Wolf didn't make much sense and the ending was terrible. It didn't wrap up loose ends at the end. I am returning this book.
