Another quick read from Mr Patterson. Alex is celebrating his birthday when he gets a call that his niece's body has been found. Alex is determined to find the killer and soon figures out that his neice was a very high priced call girl and caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. The book is full of bodies and Alex finds that the killer is among the elite of Washington. All in all not a bad read. I just wish Mr Patterson would take sometime and really write a book. He is begging people to buy this one so it won't be the last Alex Cross book... hmm like he really needs the money?!? Why not just take your time Mr Patterson and write a really good thriller that takes more than two hours to read!?
