Review: Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill, the third installment of James Patterson's Alex Cross series is a relentless thriller that keeps you at the edge of your seat. Alex Cross gets pulled into two murders that he is trying solve simultaneously. First, a child is murdered by a serial killer and left by the Sojourner Truth School, in Cross's own neighbourhood. The second is a high profile murder of a Senator by a duo that call themselves "Jack and Jill". The FBI calls Alex to help track down and stop "Jack and Jill" before they accomplish their plan to kill the President. Torn between working with the FBI to solve the high profile murders and working to stop the terror in his own neighbourhood, Cross fights to solve both.

As usual, Patterson does not fail to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. With three serial killers on the loose the story races along. I love the short chapters. Alex Cross is a character who I find I respect more and more with each book I read.
