Publisher's Summary

In broad desert daylight, a mysterious platoon of soldiers evacuates the entire population of Sunrise Valley, Nevada. Minutes later, a huge bomb detonates a hundred feet above the ground and lays waste to homes, cars, and playgrounds: a town annihilated in an instant. Alex Cross is on vacation in San Francisco with his girlfriend, Jamilla Hughes, when he gets the call. The Russian supercriminal known as the Wolf claims responsibility for the blast.
Major cities around the globe are threatened with total destruction. The Wolf has proven he can do it; the only question is, can anyone stop him in time? Surveillance film of the blast reveals the presence of another of Alex Cross' most dangerous enemies, the ruthless assassin known as the Weasel.
World leaders have just four days to prevent an unimaginable cataclysm. Joining forces with Scotland Yard and Interpol, Alex fights his way through a torrent of false leads, impersonators, and foreign agents before he gets close to the heart of the crimes. Racing down the hairpin turns of the Riviera in the most unforgettable finale James Patterson has ever written, Alex Cross confronts the truth of the Wolf's identity, a revelation that even Cross himself may be unable to survive.

What a ride!!!

Alex Cross is in fine form with his worldwide search for Wolf. It is a fun and suspenseful cat and mouse chase. The sound effects on the CD are awesome. I love the readers and accents. I do however miss his interaction with his partner from before he became a FBI agent. A very good listen overall - you should listen to Big Bad Wolf however before listening to this one.

A Wonderful Series

I've read or listened to all of the "Alex Cross" books by James Patterson and have loved them all. After each book, I'm ready for the next. While each book is a story in itself, the life of Alex and his family evolves throughout the series, so I'm glad I started with the first book, Along Came A Spider. Alex Cross is unpretentious and modest, but he always has more insight into a murder case than anyone else on the local police force or in the FBI. And in the end, he always gets his man...or woman. This book is the last book so far in the Alex Cross series. It's just as exciting and satisfiying as the previous 9 books. You won't be disappointed.
