Roses are Red by James Patterson
Few people have such insight into the humanity and inhumanity as James Patterson. In yet another awesome Alex Cross novel Patterson manages to keep the excitement and action going while still showing the daily dramas of the detective's life and loves. Detective Cross is easily one of the most endearing characters in the thriller genre and Roses are Red, though not the latest in the series, is a fabulous addition to the series. Alex is confronted not only with young Alex's mother leaving but with a perplexing string of bank robberies where hostages are murdered for no apparent reason. The Mastermind, as the man behind it all likes to be called, is a vicious psychopath... or is he? Full of misdirection and action you will love Roses are Red.
