Suspended from the force, Alex has reopened his psychology practice and is trying to help a young vet named Kate. At the same time his wife, Bree, is getting phone calls from someone that wants to “wake everybody up”-with bombs. The people are scared, the city seems mad. Can they find the culprit before it’s too late?
For me, this was a fantastic bookshot and a good addition to the Cross series. I enjoyed the fact that we got to see more of Bree, and I really liked the new characters. What really drew me forward was the fact that I got to know the culprit as well, and to like them. Patterson has a way of making good, interesting bad guys. I loved the story line, and the flow of the book. It’s also nice being able to see Nana Mama and Ali. As a long time reader of this series these characters are very special to me. One thing I did not like, though, was that it seemed to come up right after the last installment, but there was no talk of Sampson whatsoever. I had been waiting for news, as one does with a beloved character. Still, it was a fast and intensely interesting read. I give it five stars.
As far as the adult content goes, there is some language and a lot of violence. Neither are too very graphic though. I give it a four.
The book is out now! Go get it!
