Not as disappointed as the other reviewer because I have read so many Alex Cross novels I do know the characters (i.e. he never exlains how little Alex came to be which will be confusing to a newbie particularly in the context of the storyline about Maria), but I have to agree, this was disappointing. I have been a big Paterson fan for a while, but this was stilted and predictable. The thrill is gone.

While I agree with the previous reviewer that this is a book that assumes that the listeners/readers have already read prior Alex Cross books, I must say that it was a great read for me, since I did read all of the other 11 or 12 Alex Cross books and have enjoyed his character since the beginning. His life with Nana Mama and the kids, the tragic death of his first wife, his love life, all of it is fun to keep up with and each new book gives just more of a glimpse into the Cross household. Of course his simple life is complicated by the nasty villians who he must track down. If you haven't listened to any James Patterson books, you might want to start with an earlier Alex Cross book, like Jack and Jill, Rosese are Red, Mary Mary, Along Came a Spider, Cat and Mouse or one of the others. Regaardless, I must give this book 5 stars. Well written, good suspense, and great plot.
