My first Cross novel that I enjoyed very much. The novel revolves around two separate cases, one with two young children savagely murdered close to where Cross live and the second about Jack and Jill killing high profile celebrities. It is a bit slow to develop but once it does, there is lots of action, twists and turns and an intense ending. I also enjoyed Cross's family, Nana and the two kids as it adds some normalcy to his life and some relaxation from the intense plot.

This one was kind of boring to me, but will continue to read the entire series.

Good and not so good book. Reads like the movie of the week. Plenty of action, but it feels like a painting by numbers. The overall seems good, but the so many parts ( chapters ) are written ( painted ) inside the lines. I felt it cliched as if I was taken for a ride. The never ending story got on my nerves and in the end there is no conclusion. Great. I’ll have to wait for the SQL. The Jack & Jill 2. Popular books, not so good author.

nothing beats a good murder story but when there are more than one case and one has a partnership just makes it better.

A gory but thrilling Patterson story. The master of the non-stop nightmare!
