I just can't resist this guy! I love his family, his values, and his intelligence.
In this installment, Alex deals with two situations. In the first one, he must prevent a man from murdering his ex-wife, their three kids, his wife's new husband, and a neighbor...on Christmas Eve when he'd much rather be at home.
In the second situation, he meets a terrorist from a previous novel. This time she's trying to blow up a railway station...on the same Christmas Eve when Alex would rather be at home.
Yes, this one is as formulaic as the other novels in the series but, it's the characters, clean writing, and morals that keep me coming back for more.
