Thank you for this Alex Cross mystery-thriller. Great read, the pages turn themselves. Fast paced, well developed, well written, introduction of new currency technology and exciting twist at the end. Great job... thoroughly enjoyed this book. 55

This book was dragging on slowly for the first 3/4 of the book! I found myself skimming thru it til the last 150 pages when it finally held my interest! Not nearly as good as when Patterson Is the sole writer! 25

Insane, but flawed4 star

Overall, the book is great. I would recommend it to anyone who likes mysteries and is okay with slight violence, and graphical content. The only thing bad I have to say about this book is that, and perspective changes weren't the best. Patterson should have asked Riordan for advice, because his style of writing and perspective changes are more subtle, and not as confusing. Overall, great book, and I really enjoyed reading it. It's worth the money. 45


Not as good as his others3 star

When Patterson writes solely his own book, I cannot stop reading until the end...until this one. I’m making myself finish the book and have yet to feel that electric charge that he has mastered. I am 3/4’s of the way through and could honestly close the book and not finish. 35

I have read many if Patterson’s books and except for a couple that were ghost written, they excellent. This one, however, was outstanding with a fast-moving story and a great ending. Congratulations. Dan 55


A fun read but beyond belief3 star

A good beach book. Could not put it down but it is one preposterous killing after another. The story centers on Alex Cross trying to stop five different assassins who have killed the president and others in line to the presidency. It is one f those books you can’t wait to finish but at the end you think “this was one silly and unbelievable book”. There is so much going on today that would make a great basis for the book without stretching the bounds of belief. And stay tuned for sequel. . The book doesn’t resolve all the questions. 35
