Alex Cross sta festeggiando il suo compleanno quando una telefonata dal dipartimento di polizia di Washington gli comunica che c'è stato un brutale omicidio. La vittima era molto giovane. Ed è sua nipote, Caroline. Profondamente scosso, Cross inizia a indagare scoprendo presto cose che non avrebbe mai voluto sapere: Caroline si prostituiva in un club frequentato dagli uomini più facoltosi della Virginia. Nel frattempo, alla Casa Bianca comincia a circolare il nome «Zeus» in relazione a casi di sparizione di giovani donne, e diversi indizi sembrano collegare quel nome anche a Caroline.

I use to devour books by James Patterson until he started to write his books with every Tom, Dick and Harry (sorry Tom, Dick and Harry! Or Bill Clinton! Don't get me started on THAT book!) which showed me he only cared about the big payoff at the end, the almighty dollar, if you will. Plus the fact
I swear I could just keep reading and reading James Patterson's books in a day because of these lovely short ass chapters. How could you not put the book down until you finished AND then start a new one?!? Or is it just me? Well it also seems to be a theme that Alex Cross can't do anything fun in his Leggi tutto
“It was called Operation Coitus Interruptus, which only goes to prove that there are some people in the FBI with a sense of humor.” This is my first James Patterson novel, and yes i know what you're thinking 'Emma, what have you been doing with your life up until this point?' Honestly, i
Chapter 1 of my review of I, Alex Cross It's been years since I've read any James Patterson . At one point I had gone back to the beginning of the Alex Cross series and read Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls , but just never circled back around to the later entries. Chapter 2 I liked those books Leggi tutto
Not bad at all but I was more into the personal aspect of Alex’s life (Nana & Bree) than I was the crime plot. Kinda had a feeling the main criminal in this one would be a high power player in the White House. So the predictability did take away from this crime plot. Plus the happenings on the perso Leggi tutto
I used to love the Alex Cross series but lately the books have been very loosely held together. Too many things are mentioned once and either not explained or never appear again. Case in point - what exactly was the mob connection in this book and why was Tucci returning Caroline's remains to Philad Leggi tutto
Likes: Can you believe I’d never read a James Patterson book before? They’re not my usual kind of read, but my library had this one, and it was on the Great American Read list, so I thought, Why not? Also, yes, I started with book #16 in a series. I’m a rebel. Goodreads said this book can work as a Leggi tutto
This is a typical James Patterson novel, which is definitely NOT a bad thing. I enjoyed the rapid-fire pace of the story and how he kept the action moving with short chapters. And there sure was A LOT of action. Some parts were gross. I mean, really nauseatingly gross. I had to close my eyes and shak Leggi tutto
Os livros de James Patterson são todos bons, ele tem uma escrita que cativa sempre o leitor. No entanto este foi o que gostei menos de todos por causa do tema, sobre o qual não me identifico muito.
At times, I've been a bit of a fan of Alex Cross. After reading thisd one, I'm not sure why. The title is a play on Cross' promise (that the reader knows he will be unable to keep) to better balance his work and family life. So, what's my gripe.. First, Cross does NO real detective work in this novel Leggi tutto
