First edition as new
Finished the book last night and immediately started London Bridges. I have to find out what happens next with the Wolf. Another page turner by Patterson. This time, he just started working with the FBI and is questioning his decision from time to time. Jam is still in the picture and Christine is back and wants little Alex back. Cross once again has too much on his plate.
the novel is beautiful
3.5* I didn't enjoy this Alex Cross book as much as some of the previous ones. When the book started, I almost felt like the writing was a little choppy and that it wasn't flowing very well. I'm so far enjoying Alex's move to the FBI and I also enjoyed the crazy twisted plot which involved the Russian Mafia.
However, there were so many different bad guys and victims that at times it was a little difficult to keep them all straight (especially since Patterson likes to write some chapters through the victims' and bad guys' point of view). Overall though, this was a quick and easy read which was just what I needed.
Excellent, best one yet. This is the first book featuring Alex as an FBI agent. It is more credible than him being a local D.C. cop and flying all over the country fighting special cases. The plot is well written, well driven and I can see no flaws. I am more interested in the cases than Alex's personal life, but I am enjoying the storyline with Alex, Christine Johnson and little Alex.
I can not wait to see how the next book unfolds!
It’s lucky that Cross’s reputation precedes him, because his fond creator doesn’t give him much to do here but chase suspects identified by obliging tipsters and worry about his family (Alex Jr.’s mother, alarmed at Cross’s dangerous job, is suing for custody) while the Wolf and his cronies—Sterling, Mr. Potter, the Art Director, Sphinx, and the Marvel—kidnap more dishy women (and the occasional gay man) and kill everybody who gets in their way, and quite a few poor souls who don’t.

Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever encountered: a predator known only as the Wolf. Alex Cross's first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues baffled. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks as if a shadowy figure called the Wolf-a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime-is behind this business. Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it's time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home too. His ex-fiancee, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life-and not for the reasons he might have hoped.
