Fair return to form for Patterson/Cross
on 8 February 2011
This is a fair Patterson Cross story after a number of weak novels. Kyle Craig is back again, this time with a new face and identity which gets him close to Alex Cross as Cross investigates two criminal plots. The tension stays with Kyle Craig and Cross throughout the novel, even though at times it does seem farfetched (Cross knowing Craig intimately both as an ex-colleague and as a psychiatrist). Overall a fair story, though I still rate the early Cross novels as substantially better in plot, depth and thrills.
