This review is from: Four Blind Mice (Alex Cross) (Paperback)
I'm finding that it's a bad idea to read all of these books out of order. When it comes to the main character's personal life, Patterson doesn't leave a lot of room for re-caps.
Same complaints: not too captivating, awkwardly placed cultural references. Cross and Double Cross also never mentioned Alex Cross's physical appearance at all, so it was interesting to have it brought up or at least alluded to several times in this book. It surprised me, too, I'd had no idea that Detective Cross was African American.
Same positive points, too: a very entertaining read. I like the detective's family and partner, Sampson, very much. They're pretty much the only reason why I keep reading these books.
