About this deal

One if the challenges with reading Patterson is that you have to suspend your disbelief at times because the action scenes and storylines are a bit unrealistic. Others may disagree, and I welcome it, but I am left wondering if it’s time to stop and let others fight crime. She is sent off to Paris to gather evidence about a hedge fund manager's alleged theft of funds and sexual predation of his assistants.

One of the better (and more reliable) series by JP, and if, like me, you've read the other 28, there is no way you will be giving up anytime soon on the series, despite the odd stumble in the Cross series. Cross and Sampson were planning an adventure getaway when all this commenced, but their plans have been delayed. The sub-plots involving the exploits of Bree Stone—Cross’s wife and former Metro PD detective—on her mission to Paris to nab a rotten, embezzling billionaire, and Ali Cross’s skills of detection, are engaging, too. Thankfully, she is okay, and it turns out that the frightening episode was the responsibility of M and his group, bringing Cross’ and Bree’s cases full circle with each other. Now, the 29th book in the series – “Fear No Evil” – has been read, and it is my first review of 2022.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.

However, their Metro DC Police Commissioner demands that they attend the crime scene where the body was left. She's headed to Paris to gather evidence against a hedge fund manager who is raping women and embezzling funds. Surprisingly, a book this late in a series could be so riveting, but that is exactly the case for Fear No Evil. Running simultaneously with the breakneck action is the theme of family, friendship, love and loyalty that lends a nice human touch to the novel.Not only does the novel jump between Cross and Bree, it offers us glimpses into the Maestro organization with occasional bits on M.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.But before we get there, we have a lot to unpack as Cross and Sampson are not the book’s only stars. This is the 29th installment of bestselling author James Patterson’s wildly successful Alex Cross thriller series.
