Just as readers sometimes find themselves in a rut, the same can be said of authors who try to churn out something worthwhile. I'll continue to read this series because let's face it, the Cross family is a warm and loving bunch and I always look forward to what Nana Mama cooks in each book. Action, danger and intgrigue all play very closely together in this utterly exciting addition to one of my favorite series.

For me, Alex has remained a fierce, intellectual knight of moral character and the proper use of action.I remember reading the Alex’s first adventure, “Along came a Spider” and almost cried when Alex, then a widower, faced the loss of his new love in an ending twist I would never forget. The body count and torturing were higher than normal, and that is saying a lot for a Patterson novel. In a fast paced-book with all of the tension and suspense that Patterson brings to these books, the reader is treated to a number of scenarios where the body count rises and the danger increases, building the tension until we realize that Cross and Sampson are in the maelstrom of several brutally violent outbursts from which escape is hardly likely. There’s a needless Ali Cross subplot (a teaser for his next book, perhaps) but by changing up the setting significantly, it freshened up the series. The plotlines pretty much were delivered in staccato fast-moving fashion, along with a few curveballs thrown in to make the outcome more interesting.

Cross and his best buddy, John Sampson, find themselves directly in the crosshairs (no pun intended). Bad things - Ali had a small storyline, which could have been expanded and involved the reader more. Instead, Patterson went with a reveal after the fact approach which I felt like was a missed opportunity to develop Ali directly.This longstanding series has evolved over the years into action packed fast paced reads with some being a tad better than others (although I've not read a dud one yet). There’s really no such thing as a bad James Patterson book because he’s become a genre unto himself, hitting on a winning formula and able to continually reproduce it. You know what you’re getting with a Patterson book - a well-written and fast-moving thriller- and “Fear No Evil” delivers it effortlessly.
