4 Oct 2004

Alex Cross, the detective hero of Along Came a Spider, Kiss the Girls, Cat and Mouse and Pop Goes the Weasel, makes his third appearance in the explosive international bestseller from one of the world’s most popular thriller writers – now reissued in striking new cover style.

On home territory once more after the horrors of the Kiss the Girls case, detective Alex Cross faces his most harrowing challenge: a pair of ice-cold killers who are picking off Washington’s rich and famous one by one with chilling professional efficiency.

As the whole country awaits the identity of the next celebrity victim, only Alex Cross, with his proven ability to get into the minds of the most deranged killers, has the skills and the courage to crack the case – but will he discover the truth before ‘Jack and Jill’ set their sights on Washington’s ultimate celebrity target?

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME twists and pace!!! 23 Sep 2005
Format:Paperback
If you are thinking about buying this book and either aren't aware, or simply haven't read the first two books of the Alex Cross saga I urge you to buy Along Came A Spider and Kiss The Girls at once, read them and then read Jack & Jill. It is better to read them in order to keep with the full story and see how Patterson develops the characters. J&J is a cracking read!!! Very fast paced and full of plot twists that will have you frantically turning the pages. Obviously, it is also great to see how Patterson's characters are evolving as they are written brilliantly. J&J is a little different to the first two novels of the series but equally as good. Well, what are you waiting for........

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly inventive page turner. 11 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Jack and Jill looked like another example of the ordinary American Murder thriller - but James Patterson's ability to lead you by the nose to a seemingly obvious result and then flip it back on you in the most surprising and shocking manner left me speechless at several stages. With his convoluted double-thread plot and wonderfully rounded characters, the author has pushed Jack and Jill, with the characters' fabulous realism and devious behaviour straight into the all time top two of anything I have ever read. Pick this up and you won't want to stop reading from twist to twist. A fabulous read, written with a flair that makes you appreciate the effort the author has made, and simultaneously makes you glad you paid to own it and read it at your leisure. Excellent stuff, stunningly executed (if you'll pardon the pun).

James Patterson has done it again. I have read this book many times and it never fails to intrigue me with the twists and turns that have become the trademark of a James Patterson novel. Again, Alex Cross has to fight for what he believes in and for what he is pressurised to do. His passion for his children and the children of Southeast and the evil that he pits his wits against in this book show that Alex is not a man to be messed with. The story of Jack and Jill takes the reader on a horrifying journey into the lives of the rich and famous and screams to the world that not even the protected are same from the demons of the world.
This book is a must for those who have read Along Came the Spider and Kiss the Girls.
Alex Cross will never fail to thrill!!

5.0 out of 5 stars this book must be good... 9 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
because of the speed I was reading it. I've never read a book so fast. I thought Kiss the Girls was unbeatable but this is better. There are no dull bits and no sex like in previous books which ruined them. It's pace is very quick. If you like crime novels, and reading about more gruesome killings and how killers think doesn't get to you, then you can't afford not to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Irresistable! 25 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
A tag team of celebrity stalkers are the focus of the complex plot in another of Patterson's great novels. Alex Cross is assigned to protect the very important public figures with the code name "Jack and Jill". But another "Jack and Jill" are also on the loose, biding their time as to when they strike...
Another all-night read, very deep, page turning stuff. Absolutely brilliant, it's Patterson at his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff 3 Jun 2005
By lyns b
Format:Paperback
I thought that this book was excellent, I never put it down. I would really recommend this book to any reader. I would recommend though if you haven't read any books from the Alex Cross series before read 'Along came a spider' and then 'kiss the girls' first as underlying in all the books is Cross's relationship with his family, various women and serial killers haunting him from the past, it also makes all the other books easier to read as you already know all the background info.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced thriller 30 Nov 2003
Format:Paperback
This is the first time I've read James Petterson and I wasn't disappointed! This thriller is dynamic and page-turning. The storyline is gripping and the ending is a real surprise (which is the not the case for all thrillers). It's not too crude or graphic and there is suspense which will keep you turning the pages. I totally recommend it: the constant twists to the plot make for an interesting story and the short chapters make for a fast-paced read.
