Each time an Alex Cross appears, I'm up to all hours of the night stalking him until the arrests are made! James Patterson has a mind one would like to unroll and see for themselves what prompts his stories. But thank goodness he does.
Reading James Patterson is a lot like eating a bag of candy: you know it's empty calories and is not necessarily healthy for you, but you can't put it down. Patterson's latest book, Cross, is a little better than some in his Alex Cross series. But we're not talking serious mystery writing here.
Maria Cross, Alex's wife, was shot and killed ten years ago and her death still haunts Cross. He regrets that he was never able to solve her murder and this prevents him from receiving any kind of closure. Before she died, Maria was counseling a woman who was raped and scared enough of her attacker that she never would reveal any information about him. Ten years later, the Metro Police see a pattern and discover that a serial rapist and murderer is at work. Cross is called in on the case (even though he no longer works for the police force)--not just because of his expertise but also, to help avenge his wife's death. The murderer, The Butcher, is just about the most evil man to walk to earth and for him, this is a game. For Cross, catching The Butcher is a matter of life and death and revenge.
In Cross, Patterson fleshes out things just a little more than usual. We learn more about Maria and the circumstances surrounding her death. Cross decides that he needs to make some major changes in his life, which will take him full-circle. Also, just when you think that you've figured everything out, Patterson provides a tasty twist at the end that will come as a complete surprise.
So I will continue to read James Patterson, even though they're light and fluffy. I just recommend that you read them in order so that you'll know what's happening in Cross' person life.
