4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Enjoyable Novel...Until The End., 28 July 2001
This review is from: Roses are Red (Paperback)
Alex Cross returns once more in James Patterson's 'Roses Are Red' and once more Patterson hits the right notes.
The story revolves around Detective Cross' attempts to track down a mysterious killer - the self styled Mastermind - whose particularly brutal in his methods and ensures that anyone who garners any information about him isn't alive to tell anyone.
Patterson's short chapters really help his books to move along at a fast pace and this ensures that 'Roses Are Red' has a whirlwind pace to it as it builds to it's conclusion.
And it's that which is where the problems start.
The ending felt like it was a cheat somehow, especially as there had been no indication of it coming and it seemed designed mainly to promote Patterson's next book in the series.
It's a shame that the ending left me feeling this way as otherwise it would have been an excellent book as good as many of Patterson's previous ones.
