I have read nearly all of Patterson's books and was eagerly awaiting the release of his next. I bought this book the day after Christmas and could not put it down. It is one of his best! The character developement is intricate, the plot is fast paced and thrilling and the story line incredible with a surprise ending if you have read his other Cross series. I love Patterson so much I have my mother and mother-in-law hooked and my husband wondering what could be so interesting I don't hear him talk. I explained it's like the superbowl times 100. I can't wait for the next one!!

Crisp, Short, Chapters Full of Suspense

What a book! James Patterson is one of my favorite authors, and I have not read a bad book by him. Some are not up to par with his better books, Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider, but how can anyone top those two? Roses are Red comes close, however.Alex Cross, our favorite detective-hero has his heart broken, fixed, and only to be broken once more. And to complicate matters he is involved in a horrid manhunt for a man called the Mastermind. Patterson has created some fairly creepy characters, Gary Soneji, Casanova, Mr. Smith, The Weasel, all smart pyschopaths who were in the end outwitted by Alex Cross. But the Mastermind tops them all with his sheer brilliance. Cross finds himself three steps behind and when he thinks he's gotten somewhere, the next chapter reveals stunning new information to prove otherwise. Don't bother trying to figure out who the Mastermind is; that's impossible. But I will let you in on a little secret, any Patterson loyalist or a Patterson reader of the first time will be absolutely tounge-tied when they read the last sentence. I know I was.

Chilling ride!

Patterson, the master thriller author does it again with new alex cross shocker.Cross faces his most terrifying opponent yet, evil criminal genius called mastermind who has engineered deadly string of bank-robberies and the cold-blooded murders of the hostages.I defy anyone to start this book and not want to finish it in one sitting! Patterson is the master of suspense as he takes you into the mind of his villian and you worry as Cross's personal life seems to unravel as he battles the mastermind.The plot twists of this novel are fiendishly clever and Patterson says the best for last with a final denoucement on the last sentence that will surprise and chill you!

Patterson back in top form

After the disappointing "Cradle and All" Patterson is back in the vein of his sensational bestsellers "Along came a Spider", "Kiss the Girls" or "Cat and Mouse". This may be his best novel with his most evil villain yet. The Mastermind even tops Gary Soneji, Casanova or the Weasel. The end will simply blow you out of your shoes.


One of his best Alex Cross novels so far, a brilliant, fast read, can't wait for the follow-up!
