Actual rating: 4.25 (Actual review starts at paragraph 2)
I feel that I should start by saying that I greatly enjoy murder/mystery/thriller books. I enjoy trying to piece together "who done it" and where the killer might be hiding out. I enjoy the rush of adrenaline that sometimes comes from waiting to see if the detectives will catch the killer before he can kill again. Even though I bring all these things up that I enjoy, I will say that some murder/mystery books, even though very enjoyable, do not earn very many stars after I have read them. They can be very predictable and even though enjoyable, may not quite hit the note I was looking for. This is frequently the case with the Alex Cross books. I would consider them bubblegum for the mind. Even though it is fun to chew, you don't get much sustenance from it and after a while, it can become a little much to chew. These books do just that for me. I enjoy reading them after I have finished reading a very large or dense book because I can easily and quickly fly through them without having to focus or worry about things like symbolism, character motivation, or analysis. I just finished reading the second Song of Ice and Fire book (A Clash of Kings) by George R.R. Martin and even though it was very good, it was very dense; I felt the need for a break after reading it. Cross Country by James Patterson was definitely the break I needed and for some reason, reading Alex Cross this time felt much more enjoyable and therefore received a higher rating than I have given an Alex Cross book in the past.

In typical Alex Cross fashion, there is a murder to solve and a killer to find. I was very entertained by the plot of this story and I was kept guessing as to how all the clues tied together. Something about this Alex Cross book had me more engaged than the last few I have read.

I have mixed feelings about the fact that Alex left the United States to go after the international killer (there were international killers in other books and Alex didn't pick up and leave the country for literally the entire book). I understand that the person who died at the beginning was a friend of his, but for some reason it didn't sit well with me from the get-go that Patterson chose to write as though Alex were in Nigeria for the entire book.

With that said, I thought Patterson did a marvelous job of exposing the reader to the gruesome horrors that happen on the other side of the planet. I not sure how much of the book is based on true stories and news events, but I felt more than a little shocked at the horrors that some other parts of the world can hold. This book's injuries and murders felt so much more graphic and personal compared to the other books and I haven't been able to quite figure out why. Alex goes through some very horrific scenes himself in which he is tortured and injured which might be why it felt more personal - usually the injuries, tortures, and murders are happening to other characters - not Alex Cross. Other characters close to Alex experience these same horrors which also made it feel so much more personal compared to past books. These scenes definitely kept me on the edge of my seat, made me not want to put the book down, and therefore earned this book a little higher of a rating compared to the other Alex Cross books that I have read so far.

I'm jumping right into the next Alex Cross book before this Alex Cross high wears off and before the school year starts up. I've heard the next is quite a bit different compared to the other Alex Cross books, but I'm looking forward to another James Patterson quick read. ( )

Excellent addition to the Alex Cross series. The book really should have been titled cross continents since it crossed between Washington and countries in the motherland. Quite abit of torture and atrocities, really covers the wars and "rape", some kind of standing torture, it was gruesome and sad. ( )
