Kiss the Girls: (Alex Cross 2)Kiss the Girls: by James Patterson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Alex Cross’s niece, Naomi, is missing. Cross fears the disappearance could be linked to a string of recent abductions and murders. Two brilliant and twisted killers, operating on opposite sides of the country, are collaborating and competing, encouraging each other to perpetrate increasingly horrific crimes. Cross must hunt down these two brutal masterminds – not only to rescue his niece, but also to save the lives of the many others still in danger…
I started off not being sure of the ‘voice’ of Alex Cross, but before I knew it I was totally drawn into the story and couldn’t read it quick enough. So despite my earlier reservations, the sparse yet realistic style of writing works! The story races along yet Alex Cross continues to be real as Mr Patterson constantly gives us an insight into his character and into his thoughts and attitudes. Loved it!
