Review: Kiss the Girls, by James Patterson

The second Alex Cross novel was actually made into a Hollywood film before the first one was. And maybe that’s a good thing, because it’s a better, tighter book. Cross is becoming an increasingly interesting character as the series moves along, not just a super-human who can easily catch the bad guys, but also as a man with vulnerabilities and weaknesses. And you just gotta love his side-kick, John Sampson, with his ever-present cool sunglasses. This book also neatly sets up future books in the series as Cross’ nemesis from the first book has just escaped from prison and is looking for revenge.
