While it's obvious that Alex Cross always gets his guy - he's been on a pretty bad losing streak and I don't want to say too much because I hate writing reviews that have spoiler alerts, but.... I thought right from the get go that there was something fishy about that character!! Read all the books and you will see where I'm going with this.

While the Cross books are never very in depth, it keeps me constantly interested and wondering what is going to happen next - kind of like a bad TV show except I can stay more focused when reading versus when watching TV. With that said, this is another of your typically Alex Cross books. There is a bad guy, Alex's family is affected by his work, and Alex gets the bad guy (or so he may think). I will be continuing to read these easy breezy beautiful murder books. :) ( )

I always enjoy getting another installment of Alex Cross. I feel like I know him, his family and partner. This story is a little about his romantic life, but of course, it's mostly about a high profile crime. Someone is robbing banks and killing people. He has to try to figure things out. The reader gets some from the point of view of each side, the perpetrators and the detectives with some twists thrown in. ( )

Whilst this is 412 pages it's actually quite a quick read with the numerous chapter breaks and line spacing. As for the story itself, it's good, a nice change from the standard fare of serial killer that have been the focus of the last few books. Whilst the perpetrator does in fact orchestrate the murder of numerous people, they're not a serial killer in the classic sense of such.

The writing itself, whilst not plentiful for a 400 page book, does crisply convey the story and its several twists and turns in a way that's easy to read and rather captivating. The ending itself is quite a cliffhanger that leaves you basically needing to read the follow up book Violets are Blue to see if you made sense of it in the way the author intended.

Overall, a very good addition to the series. ( )
