Not as action packed as the others, Alex Cross returns and this time, there are snipers killing well known people. There are also bodies being discovered with weird numbers on their bodies. The search is on for the killers. Alex and Sampson are on the cases. Meanwhile Kyle Craig is back and with a new identity. He starts working with Cross but Cross doesn't know who is! Will he make the connection? Read and Find out!
All in all, not the best Cross novel i have read, however again, it was easy to read, the chapters were short and it kept me interested long enough to finish it. ( )

Alex Cross is pursued by an uber bad guy we have seen before who escaped from a supermax prison. There are other bad guys too, but they all die. Cross get married, again. Uber bad guy goes down for the count, on a beach no less. Does that make this a "Beach Read"?

This plot feels a little like those shampoo bottles that say, "Lather, Rinse, and Repeat". Perhaps it was out outsourced? Recommended only for the hopelessly addicted Cross fans, others can wait for new bad guys. ( )

While tracking down his arch nemesis, Karl Craig, our hero decides to plan a wedding. ;-) Oh and there's also Mice and Men characters George & Lenny, or some knock off serial killers of another ilk. Familiar characters; everyone should have a Nanamoma to keep them straight. Good story. Fast chapters, easy listen. ( )

A series of murders have taken place in Washington, D.C., Cross's base. The victims include a corrupt politician, a crooked lobbyist, and a venal tycoon. These were people hated by many, but Cross is determined to solve the case. While investigating the murders, he finds a complex math formula in a most unusual place, gets a big lead from a submerged Suburban, and makes a life-long commitment.

The question is... could a person assume another person's identity so well that not even the person's co-workers suspect anything? The reader must suspend their belief that this could happen. Overall, this is a good read. ( )

I always enjoy a good story by James Patterson. The short chapters always make the book seem to go by fast!

I enjoyed the story in this book, and of course the ultimate outcome of Alex Cross as well.... ( )

Book description
A new killer strikes at the nation's capital as Alex Cross faces his oldest -- and most dangerous -- nemesis. Detective Alex Cross and Bree Stone's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the assassination scene of a dirty congressman and a corrupt lobbyist. Next, the elusive gunman picks off other crooked Washington, D.C., politicians, sparking a blaze of theories -- is he a hero or a vigilante? The case explodes, and the FBI assigns Agent Max Siegel to the investigation. As Alex battles Siegel over jurisdiction, the murders continue... and it becomes clear they're the work of a professional with insider information. Already in a lethal cross fire, Alex receives a call from his deadliest adversary, Kyle Craig. The Mastermind is in D.C. and vows to finally eliminate Cross and his family for good.
