I chose this rating as I feel the "alex cross" books have lost originality. The stories are much the same, with bodies piling up and Alex Cross pulling it all together at the end. they do not "grab me" as the earlier ones did. I am not so eager to turn the page!
I still like the characters, they are old friends but I wish James Patterrson would return to his earler stle of writing.

book 20 in the Alex Cross series... god i love this man... he's my hero..lol

Another truly fantastic book, i enjoyed it from start to finish, as i have with all the Alex cross books. well worth the read...

Three killers are on the rampage in the capital and dead bodies are piling up almost as fast as the police can count them.

Alex Cross is in charge of all three investigations and has never been under more pressure. But with a crisis at home that threatens to tear his family apart, Alex's attention is divided. While Cross tracks the killers, he doesn't notice that someone is tracking him.

Can Alex unravel the cases and find the killers in time? Or will he be the next dead body on the list?

Alex Cross must be as aged as his readers. The Ex-FBI detective with a life-time experience of sensing and analysing the underlying motives and methods of the murderers he encounters continues. The more sinister and sadistic the crimes, the more he is embroiled. His family are long-suffering. This time, Alex is involved with controlling plastic surgeon, Elijah Creem who trades cosmetic surgery for sexual favours from teenage girls. He is apprehended and imprisoned but his bitterness on release is unleashed on Cross and partner Sampson. Changing his appearance lets him loose. Alongside this, a seemingly suicide of a woman and disappearance of her baby along with deaths of teenagers keep Cross active to the detriment of his family. Dr Creem has his own agenda with his accomplice Joshua.

The action of this novel belts along at a pace that keeps the attention and interest. It is typical Alex Cross and Patterson. The threat to Cross's life and the potential horrors to his family add immensely to the tension as he drives to unveil the culprits and motives. The twists and suspense are ever present. The hound-dog detective profile of Alex Cross with his drive to nail the criminals at the expense of dangers to himself and loved-ones are at the core of this book.

Long-standing readers of Alex Cross novels may say they have read it all before. Give it to a young unexposed fan of this genre (I have) and the reaction is one of total enthrallment and a desire to grab my old stockpile. Keep going Alex Cross. The stories are still first rate on the market.

I have read James Patterson for years. I took a break from reading as I felt they were too much the same . I decided to read this to get me in the mood again but I feel just the same.
It's predictable and very easy to read. Was a tad bored by it.

Not up to the normal standard I've come to expect from this author. I found myself skipping through a lot of detail and found the only interesting part was the actual ending.

Second Honeymoon is the second book in the second book in the Honeymoon series by prolific American author, James Patterson. It is co-written with Howard Roughan. It is set some four years after the events of the first book. FBI special agent John O'Hara is on suspended duty when he accepts an assignment from a very wealthy man to investigate the murder of a couple on their honeymoon. With a motive and even a suspect, O'Hara thinks he has a handle on the case, until more honeymoon couples are murdered. Meanwhile special agent and serial killer expert, Sarah Brubaker finds herself investigating a series of murders with a bizarre twist: all the victims are named John O'Hara. Which means, of course, that Sarah's path is bound to cross John's, and they soon find themselves involved in each other's cases. Both cases are intriguing, have a few twists, clever clues and some red herrings. There is some black humour and the banter between Brubaker and O'Hara is enjoyable. The honeymoon cases neatly demonstrate the importance of guarding personal information on the web. Ned Sinclair's escape from the mental facility was rather too easy, and a punch to Ted's jaw should have left Sarah with a damaged hand, but apart from this, a great read.

Sometimes James Patterson is a read I enjoy and sometimes not. A bit hit and miss you might say. This one was a miss. It had sex and violence but I found it distasteful. Quite a long book but not a page turner like some others of his.
