I have completed the first two Alex Cross mysteries, and I have enjoyed them very much. I love reading about his family. He is relentless and never gives up. I also watched the movies based on these two novels. Great reads and great movies!

Only 1/2-way through,
but I 'm kind of startled by how violent and gruesome the descriptions of the the crimes are , but the plot is suspenseful.

Now 80% read, and plot thinkens.
Finished. Pretty good .
Some minor plausibility issues , but many good scenes.

Psychopathic villain(s?) with the uncanny ability of deception and explicitly brutal toward women. I like nasty *believable* villains. This book was over the top and not for me.

Fast paced, decent read, but I did spend the entire time thinking "why haven't the detectives done [this] already?".

Seemed like they weren't particularly smart and was an action hero waiting for some drama.

This book definitely solidified me taking the Alex Cross plunge. Chillingly real, I was terrified to sleep without the light on!!

This was first Patterson e-book I read and it made me continue on with the Alex Cross series.
