Una serie inarrestabile di omicidi tiene in scacco tutta Washington. Mentre gli investigatori lavorano giorno e notte per fermare l’escalation di morte, i mass media chiedono a gran voce le dimissioni del capo della polizia.
Non si erano mai visti tanti morti ammazzati nella capitale degli Stati Uniti, e il detective Alex Cross non si era mai sentito così sotto pressione. Eppure non sa che il peggio deve ancora venire. Perché c’è qualcuno che lo osserva da lontano, registra ogni sua mossa, studia ogni particolare della sua vita familiare. E non c’è nulla che per Cross conti di più della famiglia, nulla al mondo è più importante dei suoi figli e di sua moglie Bree. Sono loro che lo tengono ancorato alla realtà e gli danno la forza di affrontare e combattere il male. Ma quell’ombra che lo segue ovunque conosce ormai troppo bene le sue debolezze e ha tutte le intenzioni di approfittarne…

Are you kidding me? I really can't believe Patterson did this to his fans. It almost feels like he keeps pushing his readers and seeing how much they will take without telling him to go to hell. First he started by publishing books others write, then he continued by pumping out ridiculous novels in o Leggi tutto
This book is hard to write a review on, because reading it I was thoroughly enjoying it, and excitedly turned the page. The characters were great, the story was great, everything was great, great, great. Then the book ended, or I should say, it didn't end. Seriously, it is like the book is missing th Leggi tutto
I could not believe the ending. At first I thought my ipad skipped 30 pages...what can I say BUT complete bull_ _ _ T! I have read 90% of Patterson's books and his next one should be FREE. Can someone send my rating to Mr Patterson. I cannot believe he did this to his readers.
Countless other reviewers already have let the cat out of the bag, so I won't hesitate to carry it forward: This book is a prequel to another one - and a totally unfinished prequel at that. Needless to say, the bulk of the other reviews I've read have not been kind (and that's putting it mildly). An Leggi tutto
This is a somewhat short book. The story was ok but should have been finished in this book. I think the author is getting greedy and wants people to buy the next book to make even more money. Alex Cross is becoming tedious and predictable. I used to look forward to the next book but after reading thi Leggi tutto
Anyone who knows anything about writing knows the lesson of never tricking the reader. For example, having a story that ends with the main character waking from a dream that the reader had been tricked into believing was a true event. James Patterson tricks the reader into thinking this is a novel w Leggi tutto
This ending was a ridiculous emotional rollercoaster ride! Like most readers I’m attached to Cross’s family do have to go right to the next book of the series right away because of that cliff hanger. This was an amazing installment all around. Incredible crime plots with so much suspense at the end. Leggi tutto
4.5 ★ s The haunting of Detective Bree Cross came from the cases she was currently working – young babies snatched from their mothers in innocent circumstances; would they ever see them again? And for Detective Alex Cross, the current spate of murders across the city had the force run off their feet. W Leggi tutto
One star is too much for this. If you, like me, are invested in the family of Alex Cross, Nana Mama, and the kids, you will want to read this book. Well, try to control yourself, because it ends on a ridiculous cliff-hanger and you will have to wait a year or more to get to the next book to see what Leggi tutto
Receiving an advanced copy of James' book has its advantages. I am not going to spoil things for others since the book will not be released until 11/25, but I will give you my thoughts. I almost thought for a bit that this was the end of Alex Cross. I had to put the book down with approximately 20 p Leggi tutto
