    " I stayed up late last night, like an extra 45 minutes to finish this book. I had to find out how it ended. I really liked the story but I was slightly disappointed in the ending. There was a lot of suspense but the ending fell short for me. I suppose most books are like that. I'm sure we will hear more from some of the characters in this story later on. I wasn't too keen on the situation with Christine though. Seriously? I don't know if I buy it. I really enjoyed Death's character. I love how he hated everything in his life and would smile to his wife and family while at the same time thinking about how he wished he could kill them all, totally creepy! "

    " Well - I am pleasantly surprised! The story took an unexpected turn that was a good choice for Patterson. The story was moving along nicely and gathering momentum .... however, Patterson must have decided to quickly wrap it up and that he did. Too many loose ends, too little plot development, not enough information. Let's hope that Patterson can pull it together in the next novel in the series. "

    " This was a perfectly adequate audiobook for a solo Vegas-Phoenix drive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sloan | 1/20/2014

    " Serial killer playing a game with others called the Four Horseman. The game is interestiong as far as what the players represent. Same Patterson suspense as his other books. End leaves things wide open. Made me want to read the next book, but not enough to go buy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brianna | 1/19/2014

    " This is another amazing book of his. It's the first book i read from James Patterson, and it made me want to read the whole series. READ IT!!=) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise Goldenberg | 1/13/2014

    " A few twist that I did not expect. I am new to his books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 1/5/2014

    " On the whole this is a thoroughly enjoyable fast paced thriller that sets Alex Cross against a crazed killer hellbent on living out his on-line fantasy role as one of the Four Horseman. Shafer is a surprisingly complex character and this shows as he begins to break down over the course of the book while managing to keep things just about under control, although there are some superb moments where that madness takes hold and you see his rapid loss of control and descent into darkness (not that he really seems to mind). I did find Cross a little irritating in this book, especially when it came to Christine. There were definitely quite a few lovestruck mopey teenager moments where I just wanted to give him a good shake and tell him to get a grip, although that has a lot to do with the fact that when it comes to romance stories I have very little patience at the best of times, never mind when its invading my thrillers. Overall though this is a good read and the main story is very well thought out and well written, although the ending did make me throw my hands up in exasperation (far to cozy for my liking). "

    " Excellent. One of his best "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 12/29/2013

    " James Patterson is always okay...I enjoy reading it once in a while but at the end I can't say they so memorable...except for Kiss the Girls, but that's probably because of the movie. Morgan Freeman has that ability. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Carney | 12/20/2013

    " I was a little disappointed with this book. I thought it had a very weak ending, and the bad guy wasn't as compelling as past Alex Cross novels. I hope the series bounces back with a stronger effort, but for now, I'm taking a break from this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin | 12/7/2013

    " James Patterson writes great page-turners! You get addicted to the story and can't put it down! I especially like the ones that have Alex Cross in them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward Creter | 11/30/2013

    " Alex Cross gets more emo as the series goes along. I'm not sayin' emorions aren't important, but too much is too much!!! Just get the bad guy and let's go home, dude! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrystal | 10/1/2013

    " Back when Patterson wasn't terrible.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 9/21/2013

    " Good book. The proposal scene was exactly like the one in Women's murder Club. Would've nice if he would have been a little more creative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 8/22/2013

    " One of the better killers in the alex cross series. you never knew what he was going to do "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 8/4/2013

    " I didn't think this was very well written and I felt that the characters were totally unbelievable and one-dimensional. It was ok as a quick read but nothing special. I also didn't understand why it was necessary to have so many chapters! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wendy | 5/8/2013

    " This is the worst book I've ever read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandy | 7/19/2012

    " Didn't care for this one as much as the other Alex Cross books. Still, a definite light read after "Pillars" LOL "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy Oliver | 6/1/2012

    " I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Alex Cross books! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Scott | 4/22/2012

    " There are times when one needs to read something quick and mindless. I found myself reading several of Patterson's books in one sitting during one of these times. I regret it to this day. Save yourself the time and rent the movie Double Team, starring Jean Claude Vandam and Dennis Rodman. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamissmile | 12/8/2011

    " 5*'s. Great book, well written and creepishly real. This is the kind of book that would give women nightmares. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 9/14/2011

    " Really it's a 4.5 but they don't have 1/2 stars on here. I just have one question...how in the world does Patterson write in 1st and 3rd person for so many characters? Awesome read... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Verna Humphrey | 7/12/2011

    " not the best in this series but still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/12/2011

    " Fast moving with a courtroom scene at the end. Though I am starting to think that Alex Cross should have a sign around his neck telling people to stay away, anyone who knows him could be in serious trouble. And this is only the 5th book. Fun, easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 5/7/2011

    " A good plot with good sequence. A fast, interesting read. "
