    This is book 27 in the Alex Cross series I have followed the series right from book 1 up to about book 22 when it felt like the series was getting a bit stale I loved the early Alex Cross books but it did begin to feel that as the series went on the stories were becoming the same as the previous one I saw this one and thought I d revisit Alex and see if being away from this series for a while would make a difference I have to admit the story was very similar to other Alex Cross This is book 27 in the Alex Cross series I have followed the series right from book 1 up to about book 22 when it felt like the series was getting a bit stale I loved the early Alex Cross books but it did begin to feel that as the series went on the stories were becoming the same as the previous one I saw this one and thought I d revisit Alex and see if being away from this series for a while would make a difference I have to admit the story was very similar to other Alex Cross books I ve read before, but I suppose that s the nature of this genre there is only so many different topics you can cover It was however, really nice to be back in the bosom of the Cross household and nice to see that Nana is still fussing over everyone, Alex and Bree are still together and Alex s children are growing up fast The storyline, as is usual with this author s books, was fast paced, short chapters and lots of cliff h...
