MT Review: Hope to Die (Alex Cross) Hardcover

I've finished "Hope to Die" the 22nd book in his Alex Cross series by James Patterson.

Product Description
Detective Alex Cross is being stalked by a psychotic genius, forced to play the deadliest game of his career. Cross's family -- his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children -- have been ripped away. Terrified and desperate, Cross must give this mad man what he wants if he has any chance of saving the most important people in his life. The stakes have never been higher: What will Cross sacrifice to save the ones he loves?

My Review:

The main villain is a very sick and demented person who relishes his kills and loves to watch the end result.  They really are getting off tormenting Alex and enjoying toying with him.

The secondary villain is kind of annoying and gets on your nerves with their constant yabbering.

Wow I really felt Alex's anguish and torment when he believed his family was kidnapped and killed in sickening ways!
