I enjoyed this one. I keep reading Patterson because of the short chapters I think but as I said previously I think he puts more effort into the Cross novels (and writes them himself). The main problem I have with Patterson is the endings of some of his books can be rushed and/or crap. I'm enjoying the character of Alex Cross and learning more about him. I've always been a fan of Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware but the last few books have been a bit rubbish so perhaps I picked the right time to read all the Cross books (however I prefer Alex Delaware as a character more than I do Alex Cross), as I've nearly read all of Patterson's other books.
