The Big Bad Wolf - James Patterson
Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever
encountered - a predator known only as "the Wolf. "Alex Cross's first
case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the
country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then
disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom,
Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks as if a
shadowy figure called the Wolf - a master criminal who has brought a new
reign of terror to organize crime - is behind this business in which
ordinary men and women are sold as slaves. Even as he admires the FBI's
vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and
caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out
on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the
victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in
hot water at home too. His ex-fiancee, Christine Johnson, comes back
into his life - and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.

MY THOUGHTS: This is book 9 of the Alex Cross series. This one was really good. Kept me reading until the wee hours of the night. I wanted to find out who the Wolf was. If Alex could come up with a working theory on how he could catch him. He did of course, but......well I can't tell you what happens...that would give the story away. So you'll have to read it yourself. This is also a good stand alone book. You just miss out on some of the personal stuff on Alex. I give this book 5......
This book is the letter C for The Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge.
Sherrie I loved all your likes in your Like Post including your polka dot boots. I have several that try to eat socks too! Gardens are such a great excuse to get some fresh air which is so good for the mind and body. Thanks for a review of the latest James Patterson novel. I really enjoyed the movie of one of his books and have wondered why no more have been made. I will see what I can find in audio books of his on YouTube.ReplyDelete
