Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who's afraid?

Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever encountered — a predator known only as the Wolf.

Alex Cross's first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks like a shadowy figure known as the Wolf — a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime — is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves.

You're afraid.

Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive.

As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home too. His ex-fiancée, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life — and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.

Review:

"[V]astly entertaining....Full of plot surprises and featuring a balanced mix of intrigue, hard action and angst, the novel...grips from start to finish. The Alex Cross series remains Patterson's finest, and this is the finest Cross in years." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Full of the unexpected twists and heartrending surprises that James Patterson delivers better than any suspense writer alive, The Big Bad Wolf is an unforgettable thriller..." New York Times

Review:

"[L]aughably rough-hewn....As in summer movies, a triple dose of violence conceals the absence of real menace when neither victims nor avengers stir the slightest sympathy." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

The 19th national bestseller by Patterson marks Alex Cross's debut with the FBI. His first case: beautiful women across the country are being kidnapped and possibly sold into slavery. Behind this depraved scheme stands The Wolf, a master criminal who brings a new reign of terror to organized crime.
