Ragazze belle. Ragazze intelligenti. Ragazze sparite. Qualcuno sta trasformando la costa orientale degli Stati Uniti in un macabro terreno di caccia. «Il suo obiettivo non è uccidere – dicono i profilers – lui è un collezionista.» Anche sull’altra costa, a Los Angeles, qualcuno sembra avere un debole per le studentesse. Costui, però, le stupra e le massacra. Perché la polizia tarda a collegare i casi? Cosa spinge i due serial killer in quella che sembra un’orrenda competizione? O forse è uno solo? Per il detective psicologo Alex Cross è il caso più difficile della sua vita.
Da questo romanzo è stato tratto il film Il collezionista, con protagonista Morgan Freeman.

I received an ARC of Kiss the Girls via NetGalley and I would like to thank James Patterson, Random House UK, Cornerstone and Arrow. Although this is a well-known classic thriller, first released in 1995, a new version with that strikingly awesome cover is being published on 29 June 2017. Kiss the G Leggi tutto
This is genuinely the worst book I have ever finished. To be fair, it is tolerable when there is action, which is often. But every time James Patterson tries to put words coming out of a characters mouth, it makes you want to punch yourself in the face. When he writes descriptive, emotional paragraph Leggi tutto
Okay I am getting hooked on Alex Cross and may now have to read this series straight through. I really enjoy the pace of these books, the way each short chapter jumps straight to the next so the reader has no opportunity to put the book down. I read this one in one day staying up far too late in ord Leggi tutto
My book ish: Blog | Insta This is my second time reading this and I have to admit I'm having a bit of an existential crisis. Because, like, I used to genuinely enjoy this? I wanted to re-read this to scrub my brain clean from all the Women's Murder Club cheese-barf. I was thinking, "yeah some classic Leggi tutto
If this is what some people consider beach reading, they should drown themselves. If I could scrub clean that part of my brain where the stench of this novel resides, I would. While Patterson probably applauds himself for coming up with something as clever as an underground lair and the device of two Leggi tutto
In the entire history of my mature reading, spanning back to when I picked up Fahrenheit 451 at 15, I don't think I've ever read a single sentence as soul-crushingly, brain-batteringly, rage-inducingly bad as "He made a noise. It sounded like 'yaaaaaaagh.'" HE MADE. A NOISE. IT SOUNDED. LIKE. "YAAAAA Leggi tutto
If you see me rating a book 5 stars, make sure you jump on it. Very very thrilling ! Thoroughly enjoyed. This story is a bit touchy as brutality is at it's best. Two astute example executioners are teaming up, participating, contending - and they are working across the nation. Just imagine how terri Leggi tutto
Alex Cross is a cop. A damn good cop. He's 6'3" tall, taut with muscles, and strikingly handsome. He's a doctor, too. A damn good doctor. A psychologist to the slum kids. His washboard stomach gleams in the afternoon light, as he plays Nora Jones and Coltrane on his piano, stroking his children's he Leggi tutto
4 stars “Everything I loved was taken away from me, and I did not die.” I first read this book in my sophomore year of high school. I went through a HUGE James Patterson phase and have read a large amount of his original works. My grandmother had loved him too, so it gave us something to connect Leggi tutto
Good luck trying to put this one down after starting it. From start to finish this book will have you sweating with anticipation of whats to come. James Patterson does a great job of putting realistic characters in believable situations that will have you on the edge of your seat i guess you could
