APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
After detective Alex Cross receives devastating news that his niece has been murdered, he starts chasing a powerful killer down a dangerous path that leads straight to Washington, D.C. James Patterson’s Alex Cross series is a thrill ride. The 16th book in the series doesn’t disappoint, rolling out violent conspiracies that will keep both longtime fans and newcomers on pins and needles.
Bestseller Patterson offers nothing new on a theme he himself has already done to death in his 16th novel featuring detective Alex Cross (after Cross Country), in which Cross takes on yet another barbaric serial killer, this one known as Zeus. Word that an estranged 24-year-old niece, Caroline Cross, has been murdered disturbs Cross's birthday party. To make that horror even worse, the killer fed Caroline's body through a wood chipper. Cross soon discovers that Caroline supported herself as a high-price escort for Washington, D.C.'s elite, and that other women who served similar clients have turned up missing. Cross's investigation soon attracts the attention of the feds, and he concludes that Zeus is better connected than most of the psychopaths he's brought to justice. A subplot centering on a health threat to another member of Cross's family adds padding. Readers expecting the killer to be identified through insightful profiling will be disappointed.
Great read, classic Alex Cross
I, Alex Cross
Bit over the top, very extreme violence.
