My review of Along Came a Spider by James Patterson

Along Came a Spider (Alex Cross #1)

by James Patterson (Goodreads Author)
Paperback, 502 pages
In the tradition of Thomas Harris and Jonathan Kellerman, Patterson has crafted a chilling psychological thriller that exploded onto hardcover bestseller lists nationwide. Finally available in paperback, Along Came a Spider tells of a beloved teacher who is also a cunning serial killer.
Published August 1st 2003 by Warner Books (first published 1992)
My thoughts:
I have heard so many good things about this series, so I went and checked this book out at the library. This book definitely was not a quick read, but so worth every minute spent reading it. There was so much to this book!

Gary Soneji kidnapped Maggie Rose Dunne and Michael Goldberg from their school, and he has kidnapped hundreds of kids before. He is quite the character and seems to have two personalities, but does one know what the other one is doing?

Alex Cross was on the case and Jezzie is on the secret service. They work together and get really close, but Alex Cross is black, and Jezzie is white. They are sneaking around because they don't really know what to think of their relationship.

Alex Cross is really a sharp guy and seems to think of everything, but he really gets a wakeup call and finds out what he is dealing with.

5 Stars!
