Publishers Weekly Review

Narrators Boatman and Wopat bring the world of detective Alex Cross to life in this audio edition of Patterson's latest. In this adventure, Cross is not only balancing two cases, but also facing a deadly personal crisis. Pulled into the investigation of a string of attacks on massage parlors, Cross is also being stalked by a deranged killer bent on destroying the one thing Cross holds dear: his family. Boatman presents Cross's first-person narration with a pure, honest familiarity that perfectly fits the character and keeps the listener hooked as the novel clips forward. He is most effective in showing the vulnerable side of Cross, as this book drags the usually cool detective through an emotional wringer leaving him a shattered version of his former self. Wopat's cold, dark interpretation of the deranged killer out to destroy Cross's life is a perfect counterpoint to Boatman's sensitive portrayal of Patterson's most famous creation. Together they keep the suspense high in a cat-and-mouse game that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
