Kept me reading until the end, loved the emotion from the characters (specifically -more emotion and intellect from Cross was a highlight).

I was really enjoying this book until about 3/4's of the way in and then it felt like the author had gone past his deadline and had to finish no matter what. The last part felt extremely rushed

P.S. --> I don't believe in spoiling the surprises, so I won't. I will however try to increase anticipation by saying that I was on the edge of my seat with anticipation before the end of his very first chapter of the next one, London Bridges. And we know his chapters aren't so long.

I did not really enjoy this Cross story at all. Sorry hope you all enjoy it more than i did

I wish I hadn't made the mistake of reading London Bridges before reading Big Bad Wolf... London Bridges is an excellent sequel to BBW. Both books are great; however, BBW has Cross beginning his FB I career and introduces the Wolf, which helps set the stage to London Bridges (which is even more action packed). Patterson's Alex Cross books are outstanding ... enjoy them all!
