I would have love to have picked back up on more of the sub plots, it particularly the Cross children responce to what had happen to them back in their enviroments ie. I dared hope that maybe James Patterson has finally come to his senses and will attempt to elevate this newest story above the usual manufactured crap? As usual when writing a review for an Alex Cross novel, or any series that has had more than five or so entries, it’s difficult to try and come up with something new to say that hasn’t already been said before, and that’s more the case than ever with Hope to Die. It follows on directly from the cliff-hanger that ended Cross My Heart, so cannot really be read without reading that book first. It has depth, as does our protagonist, allowing the reader to see just how complex and exciting this adventure can be.

There are a few bits and pieces here that don’t work, with character inclusions that could have been avoided, but on the whole Hope to Die is a strong read. Detective Alex Cross is pulled out of a family celebration and given the awful news that a beloved niece was brutally murdered. The picture becomes clearer with each new chapter, focusing on plot of the villain to wreak a final storm on Alex Cross while Alex is working on his own plan to unleash a befitting retribution. It's funny now when I read a JP book on my kindle, it seems the first 5% is taken up just listing his previous books. These two novels are linked, which is I think the first time Patterson has chosen to make consecutive novels a single story (not including the cross-book storyline featuring the Mastermind from the earlier books, although this is a similar idea, if shorter).

Here is a chilling villain no reader will forget, a love story of great tenderness, and a plot of relentless suspense and heart-pounding pace. Twenty years ago, I wrote, ' Along Came a Spider is the best thriller I've come across in many a year.The psychotic and evil Thierry Mulch had kidnapped Detective Alex Cross’ entire family – his beautiful wife Bree, Nana Mama and the children, Damon, Jannie and Ali had all been taken from Cross. But the pictures may have been doctored, so with a few close allies, Alex is going to keep his hopes up, and try to find the madman that is haunting his every step. With a climax that is both surprising and unexpected, a far cry from the frustration of Cross My Heart (Alex Cross), Hope to Die is one of James Patterson's best novels in a long time.
