Patterson, who has never been rightfully accused of failing to give his readers their money’s worth, pulls out all the stops in the newly published The People Vs. Alex Cross. Yes, as the title indicates, Cross is in the courtroom, and on the wrong side of it, as he finds himself on trial not only for his job but also for his life...and that’s only part of the book ... The People Vs. Alex Cross is a turning point of sorts. Patterson, who is without peer in the creation of frightening antagonists, is also a master of throwing curves at irregular intervals into the lives of his protagonists. If the conclusion is any indication of what is to come, it appears that Cross and his family will be experiencing some major changes in the next several installments of the series. If you have been away from Cross’ world for a bit, now may be the time to get reacquainted.
Patterson switches between...plotlines using his trademark short and quick chapters to bounce the story around, saving a few twists and turns for the satisfying final act. James Patterson, one of the most recognizable authors working today, has no shortage of bestselling series to his name. None, however, are better than this one, as Patterson continues to pour his best work into his fan-favorite Alex Cross franchise.
