Book Review: Cross the Line, by James Patterson

Cross the Line by James Patterson book cover and review
Alex Cross novels never fail to entertain, and Cross the Line is no different. I've read several other books and series that Patterson has written, but I don't enjoy any of them as much as Cross novels.

The plot details probably aren't important.  If you like these novels, then you'll like this one.  But here's a bit about it anyway:

A few things going on.  A road rage vigilante killer, who preys on those that drive expensive, fancy cars.  And another killer has killed a police officer. Then there's the terrorist group killing large numbers of people involved in drug manufacturing and trafficking.

So, Alex (and his wife, Bree) are working on all of these cases.  Are they connected?  I'm not going to say, but you can probably guess.

The investigating is always action packed, and the path to the answers is interesting and exciting.  I love how fast moving and easy Cross the Line is to read.  Patterson is just really good at weaving a plot together and keeping you on the edge of your seat.

Are these books a bit formulaic?  Of course.  But it's not like I read them every day.  I love the relationship that Alex has with his family. After so many books, you feel like you know these good people.  And, yes, they are too good to be true.  But I can overlook these deficiencies.  If you can too, you will love Cross the Line.
