Reading the series in order and have yet to be disappointed. If I were to rank them in order, Kiss the Girls would come first, followed closely by Jack and Jill and then Along Came a Spider. If you're new to the series, read them in order - the characters develop as you go and references are made to previous novels. Patterson has a great writing style and he has given us characters who are real and who we can enjoy. So glad I've finally started reading the Cross series.

Classic Patterson. Reading Alex Cross series in order & Jack & Jill is #3, I enjoyed it. So many twists and turns and never a true resolution, it held my attention.

I've read most of the Alex Cross Series by James Patterson. Jack and Jill was my favorite. This novel was excellent. As usual, there is excellent depth of character (Alex and Nana, for example) which can actually make you care for the characters. The plot is original, somewhat off beat, thrilling and carefully thought out with a few twists here and there. I also love his writing style. His writing style and short chapters make his novels an easy read. Patterson has never disappointed me with this Women's Murder Club Series either. I highly recommend 1st to Die. The Quickie and Swimsuit were also excellent novels.

CD/Abridged/Mystery/Spoilers: This is an older Alex Cross novel. I just finished Postcard Killers (a newer novel) about a month ago, and there are a lot of similarities with the J&J killers. The biggest mystery of the book was trying to figure out why the killers did it, which is never answered completely. At the beginning J&J are playing with a game board of some kind, but that is completely forgotten after a few chapters & has nothing to do with the motive. There are too many red herrings to the point of sloppiness. When it comes to the end, you're scratching you head b/c there were not any clues to the identity of the killers. Alex Cross has another case with children being murdered in a schoolyard. Again, too many red herrings and the killer's motive never is clearly seen. The killer is only after black children and you never know if it was just opportunity or racism. A point of note is that the future Mrs. Cross, Christine, is introduced. The reason I bought the audio was because John Rubinstein did part of the audio. He does the John Kellerman audios and in this plays all the killer's voices. Blair Underwood is the voice of Cross and he is awful. I may be biased, but I wanted Morgan Freeman because Underwood read too fast & it's hard to keep up the change in scene. Rubinstein was wonderful and did not jell will Underwood. Even with Rubinstein, I do not recommend this novel. The police work is sloppy and Cross never catches or IDs the killers. They make mistakes or turn on each other. You are never told a motive or if the Real Jack is playing the board game with the Real Jill or the Fake Jill. This book is a waste.

A well-written suspense story with several interesting twists. I would fault the novel for one simple reason, and that is its reliance on conspiracy theories. In the sciences, we follow the principal of Occam's Razor, that the simplest argument is usually the best. In modern parlance, it is known as K.I.S.S., or keep it simple stupid. Patterson is a devotee of the conspiracy theory...MLK, RFK, and JFK. This belief permeates Patterson's stories, and I feel detracts from them somewhat.

This book had many twists, all of which were unpredictable and riciting. However, there was no James Patterson flavoring. Moreover, the entire course of the book consisted of two seperate stories. So, it is natural to assume that at the end there is a connection of these stories (it even said there was on the back cover summary). However, THERE WAS NONE!!! The book eneded leading into the next Patterson book--a desperate marketing ploy. I was extremely disappointed in this ending as well as the storyline. However, it is worth reading (it was a good read).
