Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Patterson's] books don’t pussyfoot around when it comes to the villains. These are bad, bad people.” Al Roker
“Perfectly calibrated.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“The prolific Patterson and two fine narrators score a bull’s-eye with this seventeenth Alex Cross adventure… Praise is due to Jay O. Sanders for his clear, crisp narration and to Andre Braugher for his accents and believable characterizations. Best of all, Patterson’s ending suggests possible new beginnings—maybe even a crossover with another of his favorite characters.” AudioFile
“Patterson returns to old form here, and the novel is much better for it. The plot is deeper and more complex…yet his stated goals in his writing—to move the plot and the reader along quickly— are still met, and admirably so.” BookReporter.com
