Review: Cross Kill

Cross Kill Cross Kill by James Patterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Patterson wasn't done with Alex Cross' first nemesis just yet.

The first Alex Cross BookShot brings the late Gary Soneji back to torment Cross yet again. This is a Cross who's survived betrayals, the abduction of his entire family, and so much more - and yet, despite Soneji having faded into the background long ago, his specter is back and deadlier than ever.

Just like fellow first BookShot Zoo 2, this novella ends with a serious cliffhanger. Unlike Zoo 2, Cross Kill is part of an ongoing series - which begs the question of just how canon it'll be. Will the next full-length Cross novel pick up where this one left off? Or will this story thread not be picked up until the net Cross BookShot?

As Julie Chen might say, "We'll soon find out."
