Detective Alex Cross is being stalked by a psychotic genius, forced to play the deadliest game of his career. Cross's family--his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children--have been ripped away. Terrified and desperate, Cross must give this mad man what he wants if he has any chance of saving the most important people in his life. The stakes have never been higher: What will Cross sacrifice to save the ones he loves?
Widely praised by the greatest crime and thriller writers of our time, Cross My Heart set a jaw-dropping story in motion. Hope to Die propels Alex Cross's greatest challenge to its astonishing finish, proving why Jeffery Deaver says "nobody does it better" than James Patterson.
Remember how mad you were at the ending of Cross My Heart?
Mr Patterson left the end of that book with, well, no ending but asked us to keep the faith. I suspect the reason he waited a year for this novel was to let the memory fade...just reminding everyone that he was disingenuous with his loyal readers last time. Thanks for giving us the ending Mr Patterson for a mere extra $13
What's happened to Patterson?
This is the 2nd new Patterson book in a row, that's dud.
This book reads like the short film clips from the 1930's, when the villain had the damsel tied to the railroad tracks and everyone was racing to save her.
There is nothing sophisticated, intelligent or quality about this book. It's like an aspiring writer's first attempt at a book, before his English professor suggests he switch his major to Science.
Hope To Die
Disappointingly predictable. Absurdly implausible. Patterson is off my list.
