It was a week at work that required too much thinking. I needed a quick reading brain candy kind of book. Luckily I had this one on the shelf.

It’s hard to say much about the 11th book in a series. If you read these, you know how the formula works. If you don’t read Patterson’s books, you don’t care. I’ll just say that for fans of the Alex Cross series this one continues the formula. Alex is a character that I like for the most part, but the man can’t keep a personal relationship going. I love the character of his grandmother and the kids are growing up and getting a bit sassy in a good way.

The mystery involves a serial killer in LA who’s murdering famous Hollywood types. It takes a couple of surprising twists and turns and I’ll admit I was wrong about the killers identity. Fans of the series should like this one.
