The next book in the Alex Cross series. I have been waiting patiently to read this one ever since I read the excerpt in the previous book.

Gary Sonjei is back and he wants Alex dead. Plus, a new killer, Mr. Smith, is running loose in the world and no one can seem to catch him. He’s superhuman.

I believed I enjoyed this one better than the previous, only because there was more action from the start. As a reader, I had more to fear because I already knew one of the killers right away and didn’t have to spend time getting used to someone new. I also enjoyed the switch in POV halfway through. It was a nice touch to break up the normal flow of a Patterson book.

This may be one of my favorite Cross books. We’ll see by the end of the year.
