My first Patterson book, but I grew bored quickly.
Obviously this guy knows what he's writing, but it's too practiced in my opinion.
I'm curious to see if he writes of any knew subject matters. This is not fresh.

This is a great addition to the Alex Cross series!

I've been very critical of Patterson and most of his collaborators recently, believing he has over-exposed himself and the writing has suffered. I still tend to believe that. However, if those awful collaborations are the cost of him finally concentrating on his own writing as evidenced in 'Target', I'm OK with that.

'Target' is a fast-paced, old fashioned mystery of gigantic proportions and moving parts. Alex Cross was used for his investigative abilities and less for his psychological abilities. The story is riveting, however I felt the ending was rushed and pretty much out of nowhere. Oh well, still a great story. I do feel the purposeful, excruciatingly too obvious, leave you hanging ending was a cheap way to do it, especially after the clues were so well disguised within the story.

How Patterson managed to write out John Sampson, I'll never know, but get it together James. He was missed and not replaceable with Mahoney.

So good. It is a page turner. True Patterson. This is the excitement I was looking for in The President is missing. I didn't finish that book as it was very boring. Can't wait to read what The Chef has to offer.

Another great James Patterson book! A little draggie in spots but then picked right up again. Would recommend highly.

James Patterson never fails to come up with a great book. So I was not surprised that this book was good too. However in this, Alex Cross is a larger than life leading man as Washington D.C is stunned by a spate of assassinations. Capturing the ruthless assassin or assassins becomes a mammoth task and I kept turning pages till I could start breathing again!The ending was rather strange.

I returned the book after reading the first 100 pages. I am just not into really descriptive details of killing people.

I am a huge fan of the Alex Cross and Michael Bennet series by James Patterson. This novel was extra scary in the fact of what would happen if the government was in limo.

Political assassinations have Alex Cross on the hunt for the perpetrators. My favorite line in the book, ”It’s fabricated! Fake news!”

In light of the recent death of President GHWB, this book was a spot "on" thriller, action packed, and thought provoking as well; that should make a number of us ask the big question... Whoa, couldn't this actually happen. Maybe not for the exact examples given...but we continue to see the evolution of society and the family Cross. Where will JP take us next?

Yet another fast-paced thriller from James Patterson! This is the newest volume in the Alex Cross series and the strongest volume out of the last couple published.

A great read - complicated story - but well crafted. One of the best Alex Cross books ever. Truly a page turner that kept your interest until the very end. Good way to end the year!!!

Very good reading. I especially enjoy the books when Patterson has no second writer. They are the best.

Wow! James Patterson has outdone himself with TARGET ALEX CROSS. [I really like his books when he remains the sole writer; the coauthored ones are quite good, but his stand alone books are always crisper and edgier.] In this novel he takes up the usual mayhem surrounding homicides in the DC area, cross-agency collaboration/in-fighting, and a family trying to juggle growing kids and two-bread winners with high-level law enforcement jobs - oh, and let's not forget Alex's side-line job as a psychologist. All the usual stuff is there, and then in this book he layers over it the death of the US President and several of the next-in-line successors in short order behind her. And he leaves dangling in a more startling and obvious way than usual, the next Alex Cross novel. This is a very complicated, convoluted, and frankly, socially-scary books he has ever produced. A great read. Enjoy.
