Major cities around the globe, including London, Paris and New York, are threatened with total destruction. The Wolf has proven he can do it - can anyone stop him in time? Surveillance films of the blast reveal the presence of another of Alex Cross's most dangerous enemies: the Weasel. The thought of these two dark geniuses joining forces makes Alex's blood run cold. In a matter of hours, Cross is catapulted into an international chase of astonishing danger. Arriving in London to join forces with Scotland Yard and Interpol, Alex fights his way through a torrent of false leads, impersonators and foreign agents before he gets close to the heart of the crimes. Then, in the most unforgettable finale James Patterson has ever written, Alex Cross confronts the truth of the Wolf's identity - a revelation that even Cross himself may be unable to survive.Read Less

Standard Alex Cross fare
If you enjoy the Alex Cross series you will enjoy this book. I never was interested in this genre, but received a Patterson book from my sister-in-law. I was laid up and ended up reading the whole series in order. Patterson keeps a light tone (linguistically, even when the subject matter is not,) keeps things moving and his special gift is that you care about the characters immediately.
