Cross, by James Patterson

I read James Patterson's Cross yesterday. It took about 4.5 hours to read it. I wouldn't say it is the BEST Alex Cross novel, but it was good. Obviously, since I read it in one sitting, it is a book that keeps your attention. Definitely a good beach read!

Yes! I am an Alex Cross groupie!! I always picture Morgan Freeman while I am reading his books--I guess from that movie, Along Came a Spider! I really want Denzel to be Alex, though!!

My favorite book was the one where they figured out that Kyle Craig was a crazy-ass serial killer. I don't remember the name of the book!

If you like James Patterson, you would like Jeffrey Deaver. He writes the Lincoln Rhyme novels. Now Denzel did star in that one!! With Angelina Jolie, no doubt!

Big Bad Wolf.
Even before the movie came out, I always pictured Morgan Freeman as Alex... LOL It was almost creepy to me when the movie came out and he was in the part...

I will have to pick up a Jeffrey Deaver and give it a try.

Right now I am still trying to finish up Lisey's Story... I have been working at this one for a while...LOL I keep getting in new ones, and putting this one aside. Its an OK book, but Stephen has definatly written better.

Who else do you read?
Me.. Grisham, Koontz, Friedman and King.

Yes! Big Bad Wolf was AWESOME!!

I read Patricia Cornwell, Patterson, Deaver, Harlen Coben (I love him) and Johnathan Kellerman.

I haven't read Kellerman in a while, but I read everything the others put out.

Jeffrey Deaver wrote the "Bone Collector" with Angelina Jolie and Denzel Washington. It was a great movie!

I absolutely LOVE James Patterson. I haven't read all too many of the Alex Cross novels maybe 3 or 4. I do however LOVE the Women's Murder Club books (1st to Die, 2nd Chance, 3rd Degree, 4th of July, 5th Horseman). I was wondering if any of you knew if and when the 6th book is coming out?! I can't wait!

I haven't heard about #6 but I get the James Patterson email newsletter and they update often. I think his website is Home | The Official James Patterson Web Site and you can find info there. If that isn't it, just Google James Patterson and you will find the site!

You should read the Alex Cross series, starting at the begining. They are awesome and I usually can read them in one sitting!

Excellent movie... it was a while before I realized it was a book too... LOL

I bet you would like JF Friedman. Birds Eye View is a very good read.

That book was "Violets are Blue" - it was the 2nd part, the 1st one was "Roses are Red." I loev the Alex Cross books, and I love the Murder Club books too, w/the women.

You guys should try Greg Iles - he's excellent.

one thing i like about James Patterson...he is this older white guy and writes as a black man, a white woman, and a it's been a while since i've read the ones with Max the winged girl...did you write as her or as the vet?

Tim Green is a good one, too.

Just finished Cross on audiobook ~ he's great and it was a good read (or "listen") but some of his others have indeed been better.
