Little, Brown and Company. New York Boston London. Books by James Patterson.

Little, Brown and Company. He was wire thin and hadn’t started to fill out yet. The killer was handsome in an Eastern preppy way. Stashed in his hiding place were a handful of dirty novels, highly erotic books he had found during fevered shopping trips to Miami. He had become addicted to The Story of O, School Girls in Paris, and Voluptuous Initiations. He also kept a Smith and Wesson revolver in the walls with him.

Don’t really have anything to say right up front, so let’s get going. Synopsis: In Los Angeles, a reporter investigating a series of murders is killed. In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, a beautiful medical intern suddenly disappears. James Patterson followed the same formula that bothered me in the first book. Whenever Alex Cross was being concentrated on it was in first person, but the rest of the book was done in third person. Now, if Alex was talking in flashback form I could understand the different point of views, but not if it’s part of the story.

Today’s book review is going to James Patterson’s Kiss the Girls. Don’t really have anything to say right up front, so let’s get going.

Synopsis: In Los Angeles, a reporter investigating a series of murders is killed. In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, a beautiful medical intern suddenly disappears. Washington D.C. USA Alex Cross is back to solve the most baffling and terrifying murder case ever. Two clever pattern killers are collaborating, cooperating, competing--and they are working coast to coast.

James Patterson followed the same formula that bothered me in the first book. Whenever Alex Cross was being concentrated on it was in first person, but the rest of the book was done in third person. Now, if Alex was talking in flashback form I could understand the different point of views, but not if it’s part of the story. I’m a firm believer that you should stick to one point of view, with exception to the flashback thing I spoke of.

The writing is still as good as ever. Patterson does have a way for captivating the reader. With simple writing, short paragraphs and chapters, and quick action the book flows easily. Patterson started off with the murderers just starting off, and it goes from there.

Alex Cross wasn’t originally supposed to be involved in the case. That was until his niece went missing. He more or less bullied his way into the investigation. The FBI didn’t like him being involved. Nor did the local police. The FBI eventually warmed to Cross and his partner, but the locals didn’t.

The main action came with something that happened to one of the killers that never happened before. Someone escaped from his fortress. Once she did, Alex knew he was going to be able to solve the case.

The only other problem I have with the book is another problem I had with the first book. Cross was acting too repressed. There is no way that a man that smart would be so dumb when it came to racism. Just my opinion on that.

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. Sets the stage for what is to come for Cross.

Alex Cross is a very attractive detective – big, black, good looking, intelligent and a formidable fighter. His specialty is profiling serial killers. He has two little kids he adores, looked after by his feisty grandmother. His wife was killed in a drive-by shooting in D.C.

Cross has two monsters to go after in this book, one in Los Angeles and one in Durham, North Carolina. It looks as though these killers communicate with each other – a friendship steeped in blood and horror. Cross gets personally involved because one of the killers has abducted his niece. One of the monsters calls himself Casanova; the other, the Gentleman Caller.

Cross becomes friends with an amazing woman in this book – a beautiful medical intern who's a second-degree black belt. Friendship, healthy and unhealthy, is a compelling theme in Kiss the Girls.

This is not a book for readers with zero tolerance for sick violence. But it's a well-done thriller. The action is truly thrilling, the characters varied and vibrant. The identity of Casanova came as a complete surprise to me. Within its genre, Kiss the Girls is first rate.

I read this book after watching the movie (which is one of my favorites), and though, I enjoyed both, I enjoyed the book more. There was a more thrilling intensity in the book, and a great chemistry between Cross and survivor Kate. I am working my way through the Cross books and look forward to more and more from Patterson. Cross is one detective that seems to have the answers, or at least thinks he does, when his emotions aren't too overwhelming. Cross is human, and I love his enjoyment of his family and quick-witted banter with Sampson.

I read Along Came a Spider, book #1 in the Alex Cross series, and enjoyed it. But this book is very different. There are sexually deviant details which are unnecessary. There is a LOT of repeated self-scolding (why can't you figure this out Alex, what does it mean Alex, what is that detail you can't quite remember Alex, etc.) which slows the pacing to a crawl. And there is a constant barrage of misspellings, bad punctuation, and misused words which are distracting.

"Kiss the Girls" is not only better than "Along Came A Spider" but it literally the best installment in the entire Alex Cross series!

It upgrades its characters and it continues the story like a good sequel should do! The villains are great and all of the sub-plots fit the story. This is the first time that I actually feel like I'm reading an Alex Cross/detective story. It takes on the usual detective themes and uses them to the novel's advantage. I love the new character, Kate McTiernan. She is really interesting and fun to read about in this story. In fact, I love the idea of having Kate and Alex get into a relationship, because there is tons of evidence of them having feelings for each other and Patterson does a great job making me want them to go that route. The chemistry between them is beautiful. The twist is very well done, not to mention the ending as well. While the ending to "Along Came A Spider" felt depressing, this novel corrects that mistake and gives us a true "Alex Cross" ending. It has that sadness, happiness, cliffhanger, and yet, satisfying feeling that makes it feel like "the end", along with "the adventure continues" as well.

But the best part about this novel is that I have no problems with it! None at all! It begins and ends with a strong note, the pacing and timing of everything works, the characters are all done so wonderfully, and the story is amazing. "Kiss the Girls" is not just worth buying. It is worth reading over and over and over again! It is a timeless story that shows Patterson at his best and also takes the Alex Cross series to a whole new level! Please buy it!
