James Patterson

I dearly love James Patterson's Alex Cross series. Finished Cross Country last month and I could hardly put it down.  I just think he gets better with every book he writes. 

 

He is also coming out with a new book in February that may be the start of a new series as this will be the second book about Michael Bennett, NYPD. I also enjoyed the first book, Step On A Crack, very much.  Of course I like almost all of his books.

Re: James Patterson

Alex,

 

You're not alone!  A great friend of mine is a huge Patterson fan, and I know just what you mean about not being able to put them down.  I think part of the attraction for me is that Cross is just such a likable character.  Hard to not want to know what happens!

Patterson has been a favorite of mine for many years, especially the Cross series. I tend to pick up his books and be done in a matter of days. They're such easy reads and they grasp your attention and curiosity till the very end.

 

I haven't read Cross Country yet but it's on my list. Now that the holidays are over and the blasted cold I cought is gone, it's back to my regular reading routine.  Happy reading!!
