James Patterson Continues Tradition
James Patterson has again delivered a top notch thriller thatd he is known for writing.
I can't wait til the "new" movie comes out that is based on this book. I love his style which he writes (especially the "short" chapters which make his plot very easy to follow. I think I have all of his books and I can't wait for those to come.

Great summer read
This is the sort of one you read at night after a great summer day in the sun. It has suspense; intrigue; and is a lot of fun.

A quick read
Moments of gore, but a good whodunit set in the lofty heights of political Washington. My first Alex Cross; I will look for others.
Publishers Weekly, 2010-02-22 Death's shadow passes close to home in this latest installment of Patterson's long-running Det. Alex Cross series. When the remains of Alex's estranged niece are discovered in the trunk of a car, his investigation takes him into the powerful, protected, and very decadent world of the Washington elite. Tim Cain and Michael Cerveris deliver top-notch performances as they expertly bring Patterson's signature roller-coaster plotting and diverse cast of characters to life. Though the actual resolution to the story may stretch the realm of believability, Cain and Cerveris bring the listener along for the ride with strong conviction in their reading. A perfect book for a long drive. A Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Dec. 7). (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
