Alex Cross crede nei fatti concreti, eppure nella catena di delitti irrisolti che da San Francisco si allunga fino al profondo Sud della Louisiana c'è qualcosa di strano e spaventoso. Anche in un detective come lui, che conosce il male in ogni sua manifestazione, s'insinua il dubbio che non tutto sia spiegabile razionalmente. Le macabre circostanze che accompagnano il ritrovamento di giovani coppie lo spingono nei meandri di un universo insondabile (e a volte apparentemente assurdo) dei riti magici, dei frequentatori di club dell'occulto e di perversi giochi di ruolo. È una lotta contro il tempo che, delitto dopo delitto, Cross affronta con la nuova, coraggiosa collega Jamilla.

According to this book, here are James Patterson's 7 Golden Rules of Writing: 1. Write simple sentences. Don't use big words or describe people wearing colors other than black or "powder blue." 2. Dialogue should be monotonous. Have your characters say the same thing over and over. Especially the hero Leggi tutto
I always enjoy an Alex Cross book. I like his family and I like the way he tries to be a good father to them. It makes a good background for the rest of the action. And of course there is action aplenty. At last Alex is closing in on his nemesis, the Mastermind. I thought the author made it a bit too Leggi tutto
This was one of my favorite Alex Cross books yet. I loved the vampire crime plot! I’m a fantasy& sci-fi book genre fan so it really excited me to read this one. As for the Mastermind crime plot, I was glad it didn’t extend into further books where Alex would not know who the Mastermind was because I Leggi tutto
Number 7 in the Alex Cross series. This is a particularly macabre little story. The highly visible villains are sociopathic, wannabe vampire, brothers. Who, with prosthetic vampire teeth, bite their victims to death and then drain them of their blood. The more important villain, the mastermind, is in Leggi tutto
I enjoyed this book but I was surprised with ending.Soon I will move on to the next one in the series.
When I first read that the Mastermind was back, I was sure that this book wasn't gonna be at all considering the Mastermind's story really didn't interest me in the last book. However I was wrong, The Mastermind was the best aspect of this book. This book follows The Mastermind who is back - and he' Leggi tutto
Alex Cross #7- oh what a disappointment! Not going to trash this series or James Patterson- I really to love the Alex Cross series- all the psycho, crazy, serial , insane, cut up the bodies and send them to you type books- but this one wasn't one of his best... IMO. Not giving up on this series- I'm Leggi tutto
I do enjoy a good Alex Cross book by Patterson. This book had Cross hunting "Vampires". While delving Into the World of "real life Vampires" who drain their victims of blood, Cross is also tormented by the Mastermind who toys with Cross by killing those close to him. Keeping true to form, Patterson
This is my second novel by American author James Patterson. The first Patterson novel I have read is HIDE AND SEEK which I rated two (2) irreplaceable and stinky stars because it failed to court my inner bookworm side. I am a merciful (lol) critique so I decided to give the author another chance. An Leggi tutto
First Read: Slowly getting caught up on the Alex Cross' I've read out of order. This is not my favorite. Seems a lot more gruesome than it needs to be. People are murdered all over the United States. To not be a spoiler will stop. Again, not my favorite. Second Read: This was a very good Alex Cross b Leggi tutto
