I, Alex Cross by James Patterson, is the 16th in the series.

Just when I cringe at the thought of another Alex Cross book, James Patterson surprises me.   I really enjoyed this one.

Alex’s birthday celebration is interrupted by a phone call informing them of the murder and dismemberment of his 24-year old estranged niece.   Upon investigation, they find Caroline was working as a high-end escort, and she isn’t the only one that has disappeared.   All roads lead to an exclusive and private sex club called Blacksmith Farms in Virginia, and to someone called “Zeus”.   No one seems to know his identity. Unfortunately, Alex seems to be thwarted at every turn.  The FBI, the Secret Service, and even the President seems to want this investigation taken out of his hands.  But Alex can’t stop until he finds what has happened to his niece.

Meanwhile, NanaMama is fighting for her life, and Alex is torn in two directions.

This was a really good book.  The anguish that Alex is feeling over his grandmother felt real.  The storyline was really good, and as always, Patterson’s short chapters add to the overall suspense.

If you think you are through with Alex Cross (like I did), this one may change your mind.
