" 2.5 stars. I don't know why I keep reading books like this, except sometimes I just need a change of pace. I'm know Patterson is hugely popular, but I don't think the writing is anything special and the topics covered are way too dark and twisted for my liking. But then I have to keep reading and find out who the bad guy is, and how much bad stuff he will do before the hero finally stops him, and will the hero save the girl in the nick of time. And I do enjoy that. But Alex Cross has too many issue for me and I think I'll stick with Patterson's series, The Women's Murder Club. "
