In Boston, a young woman finds herself pregnant—even though she is still a virgin.

In Ireland, another young woman discovers she is in the same impossible condition.

And in cities all around the world, medical authorities are overwhelmed by epidemics, droughts, famines, floods, and worse. It all feels like a sign that something awful is coming.

Anne Fitzgerald, a former nun turned private investigator, is hired by the Archdiocese of Boston to investigate the immaculate conceptions. Even as she comes to care about and trust the young women, she realizes that both are in great danger. Terrifying forces of light and darkness are gathering. Stepping into uncharted territory where the unknown is just the beginning, Anne must discover the truth—to save the young women, to save herself, and to protect the future of all mankind.

    " Fanciful story of the coming of Jesus and the Devil child. Not believable, but still intriguing. Can there really be another Virgin birth? In this story there are 3...oops don't want to give away the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 2/8/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith Wrinkle | 2/3/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Bissoonnauth | 1/17/2014

    " Cradle and All is one of my favorite books that James Patterson has written. It has the perfect good versus evil plot, with many suspenseful moments. There are two virgins, who are pregnant, one is to give birth the Savior, the other the devil. The characters are amazing and there's the perfect amount of action in the book. I love that Patterson includes the Vatican in this book! He makes them seem very mysterious. Overall, this book is really amazing, and if you haven't read it, you should. "

    " stupid story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joann | 1/12/2014

    " Same as Cradle and All "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Selena | 12/31/2013

    " This book really creeped me out, like seriously, I became obsessed with the idea that I could get pregnant without having sex. It was frightening. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 12/25/2013

    " I love the Alex Cross and the Women's Murder Club series, but several of the other books I've read by Mr. Patterson seem to be a little too way out there for me. I didn't totally dislike this book - it kept me reading out of curiosity to see the ending, but it certainly wasn't my favorite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richelle | 12/18/2013

    " First Patterson book I ever read. Then I was hooled :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mom2jngncna~ Stephannie | 10/12/2013

    " I think this was more f-ed up than any of his Alex Cross books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LibraryGoddess | 10/6/2013

    " I didn't like this one as much as the other Patterson's books I've read, but I'm not sure why. I think I wasn't able to identify with the characters - either the virgins or the "detectives" so I never really invested in the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/24/2012

    " This is probably my favority James Patterson book so far. An excellent story! His books are always a good, easy read. I highly recommend this one, unless you are easily offended by religious matters... :-) "

    " started reading some time ago and never finished... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jerome Jackson | 9/3/2012

    " Not typical Patterson, the book was challenging to keep my interest in finishing the book. If I had know what it was about fully, I probably would have not read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Pierce | 7/28/2012

    " Scary and yet scary. James Paterson never fails to leave you somewhat wondering if this could really happen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Primadonna | 4/24/2011

    " Kinda predictable, but a fun read.

    Somehow I still think that being pregnant while one is still a virgin isn't that shocking anymore, so it baffles me somewhat.

    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alyson | 4/20/2011

    " saw this ending coming from a mile away! "

    Finished reading and it was the same story with a different beginning and a waaaay different ending. READ BOTH!!!! "
