James Patterson puts his hero Alex Cross through the wringer once again in his 29th book, and as always it is a breathtaking rollercoaster. James Patterson is always at his best when writing by himself in my humble opinion, (although I am looking forward to his upcoming book with Dolly Parton!) and this latest brutal and pacy thriller has the usual characters and elements that his readers have grown to love. There’s really no such thing as a bad James Patterson book because he’s become a genre unto himself, hitting on a winning formula and able to continually reproduce it. You know what you’re getting with a Patterson book - a well-written and fast-moving thriller- and “Fear No Evil” delivers it effortlessly.

Thank you to Random House UK and Netgalley for this advanced copy of the latest Alex Cross book and wow what a read. The story was fast paced and was an absolute page turner of a read. This had me gripped from the very first page to the last. It had everything you come to expect from a James Patterson book, total action from start to finish. It is hard to believe that this is the 29th Alex Cross book, still my favourite of all of his series of books. I would highly recommend this book. 5 stars all the way

James Patterson pulls another fine tale from the bag. Mr Patterson is one of the finest writers of his generation, in my opinion. He manages to weave three stories into one in this novel. Well plotted, with less of the detective side, and more of the action side. The book is well written but I would have preferred to have seen more resolution of the forces at play. Well worth reading for the storyline and characterisations, and a couple of the chapter-hooks are brilliant. Thanks to Netgalley for the advance copy.

Alex Cross book 29, seriously how did that happen>? Alex and Sampson are characters that I love and have no hesitancy to read about. You know with James Patterson books what you are going to get and Fear No Evil was all of it and more. In a week where I just needed come comfort reading, I got it with this book. He is one of my all time favourite authors and I almost read it in one sitting - damn having to get up for work the next day. This book is action from go to woe. There is never a chance to get bored and there is alot of dead bodies for Alex and Sampson to investigate. And they are being hunted themselves so it is all go. Thanks to Netgalley and Century for my advanced copy of this book to read. As always, a pleasure to read.

Another stand out Alex Cross thriller from the brilliant James Patterson. I love the way the story was spread across Bree in Paris and Alex and Sampson back in the US - it worked really well, i loved the different elements to the story. The mysterious and deadly M is back to plague Alex and his family and even sending some one to take out Sampson. Who is M and how is M tied to the deadly attacks on law enforcement agents who's 'confessions' are pinned onto their bodies after death? A truly breathless thriller which only James Patterson can write. Fab.

Alex Cross is, in my opinion, James Patterson's finest creation and one of my favourite characters of all time. It's more than the crime solving, the suspense and the drama - it's the family as well, the fact that every character gets a story and no-one is wasted. For younger readers, this book alludes to a further 'Ali Cross' novel as well, which excites both my daughter and me - it's lovely for us both to be reading about the same characters, at the same time in their individual adventures. Fear No Evil is classic Alex Cross. The story unravels rapidly, the action is high octane and intense but love, family and unity remain at the heart of it all. The mystery of 'M' continues, and I was absolutely enthralled and intrigued as more was unveiled, The change of location was fun for me, when the majority of these books are set in the City, it's enjoyable to take Alex out of his familiar surroundings. It's easy to feel as though Alex is always safe, surrounded by countless officers and in the safety of his City. To be out in the wild, vulnerable and open, certainly ups the ante! As a long time, die hard fan of Alex Cross, this is exactly what I wanted to read.

Thank you to Random House UK and Netgalley for this advanced copy of the latest Alex Cross book. This pairing of Alex and Sampson is one of the best and one of my favourites. The hideous M is back and still creating a fast paced journey through what should have been a peaceful getaway from it all trip into the wilderness to re-centre their minds. This was not to be and all hell breaks lose - there is even a bear ! Totally recommend the entire series and if you don't have the stamina for that this one outing will do you just fine !

What an action -packed thrilling read this was with Alex Cross at his best. A beautifully executed subplot taking us to France and the main plot taking us deep into the wilderness as the mysterious M , drug cartels and the environment all threaten Alex and John Sampson's lives. As always the thrill and darkness of death and evil is tempered by the beautiful Cross family and Nana mama's cooking. This longstanding series has evolved over the years into action packed fast paced reads with some being a tad better than others (although I've not read a dud one yet). However Fear No Evil was really engrossing and I read it quickly , enjoying every minute.

Another great Alex Cross novel, just the right amount of suspense, mystery and crime solving. Well done Mr Patterson.

Having read all of the early Alex Cross books but avoided the last few as the series was beginning to feel a bit samey, I was interested to read the latest offering, simply to see if they had changed at all. I wasn't disappointed, I really enjoyed this one (and will now be going back to read the few I missed!) This book involves the mystery figure of M, and cleverly interweaves an investigation that Alex's wife Bree is involved with together with one that Cross and best friend John Sampson are looking into. The description and variation of scenery is also really well done, I felt like I was right in the centre of the action. Good, quick read, a great action novel.

#FearNoEvil #NetGalley Wow! What a rollercoaster. This book hit the ground running and was jammed packed full of action from page 1. Great storyline and although this book can be read as a standalone, it would certainly give the reader more enjoyment to know the back story of Alex and Samson and their history with the mysterious M. This series is always a great read and I very much look forward to the next installment. Superb 5 star read!

Fear No Evil told from a few different perspectives, plenty going on in this latest novel. Just as Alex Cross and John Sampson are about to take a break from work, a new mission is brought to them, investigating the murder of a member of the CIA, with cases to follow. Will they get that vacation they needed?... Another great read from James Patterson, I really enjoyed this latest edition of Alex Cross series. Whilst part of a series, could also easily be read as a standalone. Look forward to more from this author.

When it comes to east reading thrillers James Patterson has the market cornered. This is fast paced as usual and Alex is put through it again but for all it’s ridiculous plot lines (a good thing!) there is always an undertone of family and love which makes it relatable even though it’s wild.

Alex Cross and Sampson are back. Preparing to have some time off, they are pulled back on an investigation just as they are preparing to leave and what a ride this is. Bree also off on her own investigation which sees Alex fly across the pond to her. Fast action in this one. James Patterson and Alex Cross back at their best.

I loved this latest Alex Cross book! For me it felt like one of the early Cross books; the plot was exhilarating and non-stop, the twists never stopped coming and I always enjoy the characters. I am never too keen when plots start to focus too much on the central characters instead of an investigation angle, in this read, the case does focus around Cross and Sampson but in a good way, they are key to the investigation throughout, I enjoyed seeing where it took them and Patterson sets it up well for the next book in the series. I always love reading about m favourite Cross family and this was no different. I particularly enjoyed Bree's storyline in this, she has her own plot thread which starts to cross over with Alex's as the book goes on. This was a first class Alex Cross read, full of drama and excitement, I loved it.

Another high octane thriller in the Dr. Alex Cross series ( No. 29) which readers of James Patterson will love. It can easily be read as a stand-alone but it’s a great series if you want to go back and read more. Well written this book grabbed me from the start and I read it over the course of a day. Briefly, as Cross and Detective John Sampson are about to get away on a break to Montana they are called back to investigate the murder of a CIA agent. When they do eventually get away they find themselves been both pursued by and pursuers of two opposing groups of assassins, one controlled by a man who has stalked Cross and his family for years. There are some great descriptions of the scenery and great characterisations. An easy read from beginning to end with a high body count and some brutal twists along the way. A real page turner and deserves a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating

Thank you to #NetGalley and #Cornerstone Digital for an advance copy of #FearNoEvil by JamesPatterson This is the 29th book in the #AlexCross series and the first one I have read. How have I missed them !!!!! From start to finish this is a rollercoaster of a ride. Going from Washington to Paris, Mexico to Montana the pace never lets up. Weaving different stories to create one fantastic ending. Although this book is part of a long running series I found it easy to read and the story flowed with just enough mention of previous happenings A master storyteller and one I will be reading a lot more of. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
