Rated 4 of 5 stars
I’m a huge fan of Alex Cross so my opinion is a bit bias. I love the tough but family oriented professor/detective created by Patterson. He’s been able to build many relationships and stories with such a layered, engaging and intellectual main character. This book does not disappoint!
When a madman sets his sights on Dr. Cross’ family and steals them away leaving only pictures of their dead bodies…he goes into a winding spiral into suicidal, homicidal and mental anguish. He has everyone searching for the madman…except the madman’s identity changes frequently. He can’t get a handle on WHO he is and moreso, WHERE he’s taken his family if they are still alive as he hopes. With a killer who leaves no witnesses and a mind hellbent on being the perfect criminal (up against the perfect foe…Dr. Cross)….Cross has a lot to learn about what motivates this criminal.
As a listener, the narration was spot on and both narrators were excellent. I loved the tone of their voices and the distinction between the two story lines kept me on task. Very good read!
