Ha affrontato serial killer, psicopatici, criminali di altissimo livello. Sì è addentrato nelle pieghe più oscure della psiche umana per snidare il male. Eppure c’è una sfida che per Alex Cross rimane ancora in sospeso, da anni: l’omicidio della moglie Maria, morta tra le sue braccia in seguito a un colpo di pistola, forse diretto a lui, o forse no… Quando il detective John Sampson gli chiede aiuto per il caso di uno stupratore seriale, le cose si complicano. Perché quel caso sembra avere alcuni agganci con l’omicidio di Maria. E basta questa possibilità per far riaffiorare il dolore per quella tragedia e l’angoscia per il mistero che ancora la avvolge. C’è davvero un legame fra l’assassinio della moglie e il mostro? La risposta è nella memoria del killer e solo catturandolo vivo Cross potrà ottenerla.

I may have made a mistake with these books. Usually I am quite anal about series and I start at number one and move through in order. For some reason I did not do this with Alex Cross and I am now starting to regret it! Sure, each story works on its own but, read at random, sometimes Alex is married Leggi tutto
This is the Alex Cross book I have been waiting to read; where he finds out who killed his wife years ago. It did not disappoint! Alex is now working as a full-time psychologist in private practice but is right back into the investigation world when things warm up his wife’s cold case. This one was Leggi tutto
Book 12 in the Alex Cross series published 2006. Unfortunately, for me, this was just more of the same. Completely out of control psychopath, this one was a bit different inasmuch as he is also a serial rapist. As a result of a stern talking-to from Nanna/Mamma Alex decides to quite the FBI and go in Leggi tutto
Being a big Patterson fan and following the character of Alex Cross through all of the his books I am sad to say that I am really beginning to get tired of him. It really pains me to say that because I have come to really like all of the characters that have been created within the Cross series but
James Patterson owes Hollywood a debt of gratitude. If it wasn't for the movie version of this book, I would not be writing this review. In fact, if it wasn't for this movie, I would not have read the past three Cross novels, ever. I am not a fan of James Patterson. His writing is beyond abominable. Leggi tutto
I used to love James Patterson books. (I loved Alex Cross' badass persona complemented by his squishy in the center role as a family man.) But lately I've chosen to stay away from Patterson's books. The bloom is off the rose, so to speak. I honestly believe that the sheer volume of his work has caus Leggi tutto

After finishing the last book I thought (and repeated that thought in my review of Mary Mary) that James Patterson was in need of shaking up the formula for Alex Cross. There had been a few too many similarities sneaking into his novels and it was starting to get in the way of the story. I am happy
Second Read - I just re-read this book, and found the things that I didn't quite get the first time. I really enjoyed it very much. I thought it was one of the better Crosses, and if you like that kind of reading you probably enjoy. Cross's and Sampson's friendship is one of my favorite parts. It's
I like James Patterson's style and his method of story telling. The action moves along quickly and the characters, while not all that memorable, are suitably likable or villainous. It's a real page turner, as forensic psychologist Alex Cross tracks down the sadistic mafia killer known as The Butcher Leggi tutto
