Patterson has done it for me again. Discouraged to pick up yet another book in the Alex Cross series I decided it needed to be done and am ever so grateful I did.
Cross answered a lot of questions I had throughout the series and only wish I actually read this series in the order it was intended. Learning about the circumstances behind Maria’s murder was just what I needed and to follow Cross as he made a new life for himself and his family was refreshing.
Patterson has developed his characters so thoroughly that I can see them and feel their pain. Instead of seeing them as characters I often find myself questioning why “Cross” did that or “Sampson” said that instead of why Patterson had them do it. This is true brilliance when it comes to writing a compelling novel.
Thanks for reading,
