BOOK REVIEW: DOUBLE CROSS
Two killers – do they combine forces to go after the one man they would like as their next victim – Alex Cross?
Alex Cross is enjoying his life now. He has a new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, and things couldn’t get much better. The nice quiet life did not last too long for Alex.
Washington, D.C. is in a state of alert due to a maniac terrorizing the city. The strange thing about this killer is he really likes an audience when he is in the process of committing a murder. He could have actually murdered one woman in her apartment without anyone seeing what was happening but this method did not suit him. Instead he took her out on the balcony to finish his vicious act and made sure there were plenty of people in the “audience” watching.
Detective Brianna Stone is involved in the investigation and Alex also offers his help to the police department.
As if this isn’t enough, there is something brewing in Colorado. The Mastermind, who has been in a maximum-security prison for the last four years, has planned a very clever escape. He has been obsessed with breaking out of jail and wants to get revenge on everyone responsible for putting him in jail including Alex Cross.
Do these two villains work together to get to Alex Cross?
James Patterson is one of my favorite authors. I love his short chapters that leave you with just enough of a tease to make you want to go on to the next one. As with every one of his books, he keeps me glued to the pages. This novel gives the reader double excitement with not one but two maniacs after Alex Cross. It is true that some of the things that happen throughout the story might seem “impossible” but James Patterson is such a good writer we almost end up believing it all. Even if you are not an Alex Cross fan, you will enjoy this thriller by James Patterson. Be sure to add “Double Cross” to your reading list.
