Book Review: Hope to Die by James Patterson (Alex Cross #22)



Title:  Hope to Die

Author:  James Patterson

Series:  Alex Cross #22


Synopsis (from Detective Alex Cross is being stalked by a psychotic genius, forced to play the deadliest game of his career. Cross’s family–his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children–have been ripped away. Terrified and desperate, Cross must give this mad man what he wants if he has any chance of saving the most important people in his life. The stakes have never been higher: What will Cross sacrifice to save the ones he loves?

Widely praised by the greatest crime and thriller writers of our time, Cross My Heart set a jaw-dropping story in motion. Hope to Die propels Alex Cross’s greatest challenge to its astonishing finish, proving why Jeffery Deaver says “nobody does it better” than James Patterson.


My thoughts:  I absolutely love James Patterson’s Alex Cross series.  I will admit however that the last couple of books it felt a little forced and stale to me.  I always feel like his focus on some of his many other series was negatively effecting the Alex Cross series.  However, in my opinion Patterson is back at his best with this latest installment of the Alex Cross series!

Wow!  is all I have to say about Hope to Die!  The plot is exciting, incredibly fast, intriguing, scary, twisted . . . excellent!!!

If you are a fan of Patterson . . . this book is not to be missed!

Another superb, fantastic read . . . go get your hands on it now!!!!

And remember,

Books Are Life,
