Cross Fire

It didn't take me long to read this book.  It has short chapters and moves right along, as most James Patterson novels do.  I don't know why I like them since they are mostly formulaic but I keep buying them. 

I love Alex Cross's family and am always anxious to read about how the kids and Nana Mama are doing.  Add to that an interesting plot and cool characters and it's a book I like to gulp.

In this one Kylie Craig, Alex's former friend and co-worker, has escaped from prison and finds a way to be a part of Alex's life, again.  Also, a couple of killers are targeting crooked political big wigs. And then there's the murder of homeless people who have equations written on their bodies.  As usual, Alex is able to solve the mysteries and make DC safe again all while planning his wedding to Bree.

Kylie is visiting for the week so I won't have much time to read but that's okay; I'd much rather play with her.

I will give this a try. Because of you.

Patterson writes for young adults, and my daughter is hooked. In his book, he encourages people to pass along his books to other kids if they liked what they read. I admire and respect that. Very cool.

Happy New Year.
