Series: #11 in the Alex Cross series
Genre: Mystery
Publication Date: 2005
Pages: 412
TBR 2009 Challenge Alternate #5

It was a week at work that required too much thinking. I needed a quick reading brain candy kind of book. Luckily I had this one on the shelf.

It’s hard to say much about the 11th book in a series. If you read these, you know how the formula works. If you don’t read Patterson’s books, you don’t care. I’ll just say that for fans of the Alex Cross series this one continues the formula. Alex is a character that I like for the most part, but the man can’t keep a personal relationship going. I love the character of his grandmother and the kids are growing up and getting a bit sassy in a good way.

The mystery involves a serial killer in LA who’s murdering famous Hollywood types. It takes a couple of surprising twists and turns and I’ll admit I was wrong about the killers identity. Fans of the series should like this one.

The 11th book? Wow! I have only read The Women's Murder Club series. I am only on the fifth book, though. I really should read more in the series soon!

Kailana: Yup 11 - I think the latest in the series is #14 so I'm making progress in getting caught up in this one. In the Women's Murder Club series, I just read #4 and #8 just came out.

I love James Patterson but I have yet to read an Alex Cross novel. I have read 2 in Women's Murder Club and 2 in the Max series and a couple that are off on their own. Glad you could find a book that worked well with your busy work schedule. Hope it calms down soon!

Rebecca: I actually started with the Alex Cross books. I read one of the Max series, but it wasn't really my thing.
