'If there really were human superheroes, Alex Cross would be at the head of the class ... and, with each instalment in the series, Patterson makes sure his superhero gets bigger and better while at the same time becoming more vulnerable' New York Times -- New York Times 'This superb thriller kept me reading all night. I could not put it down and read the 440 pages in two sessions.' -- Telegraph & Argus Bradford 20020727 'It's tightly written and you can't stop yourself turning the pages. No wonder Patterson's got his canines firmly into the bestseller lists.'
