Big Bad Wolf by James Patterson
In addition to the perplexing case, Alex has other issues to worry about. He is separated from his new love, Jamilla, who is on the West Coast while he is on the East. And a former love, Christine Johnson, has reappeared in a move that bodes trouble. She is the mother of Alex's youngest child, the baby also named Alex. Christine walked out of their lives a year ago to go find herself after a brutal crime, and now she is back and wants custody of Alex.
As Cross works the case, he discovers that the mastermind behind the kidnapping ring is a Russian man known only as the Wolf. The Wolf is never seen, but his intimidation extends to everyone he has any contact with. Anyone who talks about him at all is brutually murdered with no questions asked. That makes tracking him down and stopping his spree more difficult than any other search Alex can remember.
Big Bad Wolf is a fast-paced thriller that reminds readers why they love James Patterson. The action is non-stop and heart-pounding. The reader is caught up in the action and also becomes involved in Alex's family concerns. This book is recommended for all mystery readers.
