Book 15 (2011) Cross Fire

Alex Cross is back. And so is Kyle Craig. And I really wish neither one were back.

I started reading this series a few years ago and read about 10 of them in one summer vacation. I thought Cross was written as a smart, intellectual, guy, family first, and just with a nice twist of 'something' special in him. He seemed like a smart character.

Maybe Patterson doesn't like him anymore because he seems so cliched and tired. He seems whiny and not as smart of quick.

And I hate bringing back these former foes of his. Can't we have a new enemy?

Cross goes about Craig who threatens his family. His buddy Sampson plays second fiddle and guards the family. Nana gets mad. The kids are "smart". Alex gets married. He gets threatened. Blah Blah Blah...............

Nuff said. (356 pages)
