Characters: Alex Cross
For some reason I enjoyed this one a lot. I think it was the cast of characters. It wasn’t just Cross. Bree and John were a big part of the story too.

Sometimes I feel like his family holds him back from truly being as aggressive and hands-on as he needs to be. I understand that they come first, but I can imagine the Cross books without any emotional attachments.

On the flip side, Alex put his family in the backseat on this one and his son rebelled against it. Alex just got through fighting for the youngest and is now “all about the case.”

Still, I really got into the pacing and loved the interactions from all of the characters.

I can’t take Alex’s voice seriously on the audiobook. Emotionally wise, he’s not very believable.

On to the next!
