An enjoyable read from Patterson this time round. I still can't believe who the Mastermind turned out to be. Not because it was a massive shock but because it was far too predictable. It also annoyed me how Alex has now gone back to saying how Maria and his kids are the loves of his life when a couple of books ago Christine was, make your mind up! The vampire storyline was a good read too, once again he comes up with a completely OTT storyline which isn't just A kills B and is caught by C.
