In broad desert daylight, a mysterious platoon of soldiers evacuates the entire population of Sunrise Valley, Nevada. Minutes later, a huge bomb detonates a hundred feet above the ground and lays waste to homes, cars, and playgrounds: a town annihilated in an instant.Alex Cross is on vacation in San Francisco with his girlfriend, Jamilla Hughes, when he gets the call. The Russian supercriminal known as the Wolf claims responsibility for the blast.

Major cities around the globe are threatened with total destruction. The Wolf has proven he can do it; the only question is, can anyone stop him in time? Surveillance film of the blast reveals the presence of another of Alex Cross' most dangerous enemies, the ruthless assassin known as the Weasel.

World leaders have just four days to prevent an unimaginable cataclysm. Joining forces with Scotland Yard and Interpol, Alex fights his way through a torrent of false leads, impersonators, and foreign agents before he gets close to the heart of the crimes. Racing down the hairpin turns of the Riviera in the most unforgettable finale James Patterson has ever written, Alex Cross confronts the truth of the Wolf's identity, a revelation that even Cross himself may be unable to survive.

    Such a great continuation from the previous book! James Patterson always leaves me wanting more and the next book always gives me what I want!

  • John S.

    I did not finish the book. Chapters were extremely short. Each new chapter was introduced in a very annoying way. Hard to believe topic. No more James Patterson.

  • Pam

    Lots of action, lots of tension. Very scary and I hope nothing like this EVER happens for real!

  • Anonymous

    Excellent read as usual. Always love James Patterson.

  • Angela Jones

    Suspensful and gripping from the first words. Would recommend for those first time and repeat James Patterson fans.

    While the story is good the production is distracting. Each of the very short chapters is introduced by a 15 second percussive sound with an echoing, monster voice saying the number of the chapter. The narrator then also says the chapter number, as if he is unaware that the chapter is already introduced. I found this distracting from the suspense of the story.

    This was a fantastic book from start to finish. the sequel to the big bad wolf. very fast paced with lots of action.

  • Kay

    Very action packed and as always, Alex Cross is wonderful. The mix of the mystery and his personal life makes the story even more interesting.

  • Julie Wilson

    I love all of the Alex Cross series, and this one is no exception. I am glad that Alex got rid of one of his enemies in this one. Yet this book leaves you hanging, more than any other one that I can recall. I can't wait to start the next one in the series to see what happens!

    Let me begin by saying I am a big Cross fan. This is the second book with two of his bad guys from others - Schaeffer and The Wolf. The Wolf has been one of my favorite bad guys. Smart, paranoid, harsh - a character you just hope to God you never come up against in your own sheltered world. In many ways I found this book reminded Cross of his vulnerabilities and his need to work with a team - not always the guy with insight alone charging in as the Lone Wolf himself. I liked that. Until the last 20 minutes it was easily the most suspenseful of the Cross novels for me. After the big roof scene (you'll see what I mean) I think they should wrapped it up. The rest seemed like superflous fluff after such a magnificent, turbulent ride. Worth listening to for sure. The reader is very good as usual.
