When Patterson writes solely his own book, I cannot stop reading until the end...until this one. I’m making myself finish the book and have yet to feel that electric charge that he has mastered. I am 3/4’s of the way through and could honestly close the book and not finish.
I have read many if Patterson’s books and except for a couple that were ghost written, they excellent. This one, however, was outstanding with a fast-moving story and a great ending. Congratulations.
A good beach book. Could not put it down but it is one preposterous killing after another. The story centers on Alex Cross trying to stop five different assassins who have killed the president and others in line to the presidency. It is one f those books you can’t wait to finish but at the end you think “this was one silly and unbelievable book”. There is so much going on today that would make a great basis for the book without stretching the bounds of belief. And stay tuned for sequel. . The book doesn’t resolve all the questions.
