About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The body count and torturing were higher than normal, and that is saying a lot for a Patterson novel.

One if the challenges with reading Patterson is that you have to suspend your disbelief at times because the action scenes and storylines are a bit unrealistic. There is surprise twist in the final pages that seems to answer our ongoing question: Who is the elusive M ? Until they’re attacked by two rival teams of assassins, controlled by the same mastermind who has stalked Alex and his family for years. Action, danger and intgrigue all play very closely together in this utterly exciting addition to one of my favorite series. I am somewhat intrigued by the ending and even if this one isn’t high up on my series favorites, I’ll still be eagerly awaiting the next.Alex Cross enters the final battle with the all-knowing genius who has stalked him and his family for years. Now, the 29th book in the series – “Fear No Evil” – has been read, and it is my first review of 2022.

For me, Alex has remained a fierce, intellectual knight of moral character and the proper use of action. They have had their fair share of fiendish antagonists over the years but the most puzzling surely has to be M or Maestro whose interventions have sometimes been helpful and sometimes deadly.

Dr Alex Cross and his long-time best friend Detective John Sampson were preparing for their long-awaited break, a camp-out and hike, riding the rapids, entering on horseback, in the Montana wilderness, well known for the bear that lived there. It did pick up and settle in for the last 75 pages or so, when Alex and Sampson were trekking through the Montana wilderness.

Overall, this was one of the better Alex Cross novels, moving the “M” storyline forward to a hopeful conclusion in the next book which will be his 30th outing. Not only does the novel jump between Cross and Bree, it offers us glimpses into the Maestro organization with occasional bits on M. Me and my husband are huge readers of JP and have probably read almost all of them now, over the many years. Soon, more law enforcement personnel start to turn up dead, seemingly the victims of some vigilante group, and Cross and the FBI rush from state to state in an effort to identify and stop the killers.I picked this one up and realized how much I enjoy this series and will go back to read the ones I have missed. Until they're attacked by two rival teams of assassins, controlled by the same mastermind who has stalked Alex and his family for years. I really enjoyed the mystery in this one, and loved the moment at the end when we find out who really was behind it all. While I usually offer a detailed summary of the storyline for other reviewers to enjoy, I can’t be bothered today, preferring to offer a quick summary of my sentiments so that I can move along.
