Two children have been kidnapped from an elite private school in Washington DC, and Alex Cross is charged with finding them.
The kidnapper is their maths teacher, a man named Gary Soneji. As Cross gets pulled deeper into the strange world of the kidnapper, it becomes clear he is not what he seems…
I am certainly a Alex Cross super fan. And decided that this book needed reading again. I have read each and everyone of the Alex Cross series, and think that Cross is just awesome. Sometimes he's so good he gets on my nerves, but I still think he's awesome.
If I ever needed a case solving then Alex Cross is the man you would want on the job.
One of the things I particularly like about JP's books are the short chapters, it makes it so easy to say 'just one more, just one more' before you know it you have devoured half the book. I have just re read this in little over a day.
It's scary when I think the first time I read this is over 20 years ago, (published in 1993) can you believe that. so it was certainly due a re read. And although I could remember a little of what happened, it was great getting to Know Alex all over again, and the fantastic characters of Sampson and Nana Mama.
Once you get into the story you are left wanting more and more, you are drawn into the story and each chapter leaves you needing to read the next one.
I remember hating Gary Soneji, an evil kidnapper, and second time around I hated him twice as much.
James Patterson is well known for his Alex Cross Series, but I also love his Michael Bennett Series, and The Womans Murder Club Series. All books well worth reading and if you haven't yet read a JP book, well this little lot would certainly keep you going for quite some time.
