Wonderful Book

User Review  - letsfigurethisout -

James Pattersons Alex Cross books never bore me. Ill keep looking for more. O.Co is a good place to find them and at a reasonable price. I dont like hardcovers so sometimes I need to wait a while before the paperback is available. Read full review

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - brucemmoyer - LibraryThing

It is what it is: Not great literature, but typical Alex Cross fare. If you are into Cross, you will like it. Easy to see why Patterson is a popular author. Entertaining, but hardly cerebral, yet a breezy read great for killing a few hours and trying to guess the finish. Read full review
