Description

Cross and Sampson soon become the targets for both groups and they try and work out if ‘M’ is also after their blood.

From DC to Wyoming, Colorado, Paris, Amsterdam, Mexico, CA, MA and a crazy showdown in Montana on a wild river, this book takes us on a whirlwind ride. Don’t get me wrong, there is action and some heart-thumping suspense, but I did not feel the push to keep reading well into the night or caring much about what was going on.The sub-plots involving the exploits of Bree Stone—Cross’s wife and former Metro PD detective—on her mission to Paris to nab a rotten, embezzling billionaire, and Ali Cross’s skills of detection, are engaging, too. You know with James Patterson books what you are going to get and Fear No Evil was all of it and more.

I adore the Patterson books but haven't read one for quite some time so I was excited to see Alex Cross and John Sampson again! He was Patterson’s first detective series that helped lay the foundation for his kingdom of several bestselling series and stand-alone novels.Meanwhile, recently retired Bree Stone, wife of Alex Cross, is sent to Paris on her first assignment with the Private sector Security Agency she’s now working for. I am somewhat intrigued by the ending and even if this one isn’t high up on my series favorites, I’ll still be eagerly awaiting the next. The last few Alex Cross books I’ve really enjoyed because they felt like ones from earlier in the series. Lots of characters and I sometimes had to re-read to figure out where everyone belonged but of course Patterson is worth it. Really it is all delightful nonsense but the baddies are bad, the main characters face terrible odds but always win in the end, and reading the book is one of the better ways to pass a few hours of the day.

Cross is his usual go-getter self, swooping in to help as best he can, while also rescuing his wife from danger as she investigates something over in Europe. Then, a nemesis from times past reaches out to them, teasing and taunting, leading them to believe that he’s behind it all…. Until they're attacked by two rival teams of assassins, controlled by the same mastermind who has stalked Alex and his family for years. Cross and his best buddy, John Sampson, find themselves directly in the crosshairs (no pun intended).The wilds of Montana is where most of this book takes place and there is hardly a moment to breathe with everything Alex and Sampson are facing. Action, danger and intgrigue all play very closely together in this utterly exciting addition to one of my favorite series. Until he's attacked by two rival teams of assassins, controlled by the same mastermind who has stalked Alex and his family for years.

He is the creator of unforgettable characters and series, including Alex Cross, the Women’s Murder Club, Jane Effing Smith, and Maximum Ride, and of breathtaking true stories about the Kennedys, John Lennon, and Princess Diana, as well as our military heroes, police officers, and ER nurses. They end up in the wilds of Montana and it’s clear both groups want them dead, as they hunt them down.Cross and Sampson were planning an adventure getaway when all this commenced, but their plans have been delayed. She is sent off to Paris to gather evidence about a hedge fund manager's alleged theft of funds and sexual predation of his assistants. The tension and action that is usually built up with short Patterson-esque chapters is gone, leaving the reader feeling flat and underwhelmed. All the while Patterson teases with the elusive identity of his main antagonist and why they would be targeting Cross. Caught in a web of assassins, Alex Cross enters the final battle with the all-knowing genius who has stalked him and his family for years.
