James Patterson has written numerous international No. 1 bestsellers including the Alex Cross series and the Women's Murder Club series. He lives in Florida.
It was smart to hire two talented and very different readers for Patterson's latest blockbuster about now retired FBI psychiatrist and former ace profiler Alex Cross. Fernandez catches Alex's raspy wisdom with instant credibility (he's done Cross before, in London Bridges and Cross), and Stuhlbarg is full of lighter charm as the narrator and one of the two serial killers who are trying to spoil Cross's return to private practice. Stuhlbarg makes Alex's former FBI colleague Kyle Craig, who turned out to be a mass murderer nicknamed the Mastermind, as charismatic as he is deadly. Cross's other burden comes from a more conventional serial killer terrorizing the Washington area where Alex's lady is on the case. Simultaneous release with the Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Oct. 22). (Nov.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
Readers love Alex Cross (his series has sold more than 50 million copies), so they'll be concerned to see how he handles a murderer who really likes to show off. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
