Short & Sweet Review: Cross Kill by James Patterson

Title: Cross Kill
Author: James Patterson
Series: Alex Cross, #24.4
Published: June 2016, BookShots
Format: Paperback, 113 pages
Source: Personal copy

Alex Cross, I'm coming for you--even from the grave if I have to.

Along Came a Spider killer Gary Soneji has been dead for over ten years. Alex Cross watched him die. But today, Cross saw him gun down his partner. Is Soneji alive? A ghost? Or something even more sinister?

Nothing will prepare you for the wicked truth.

***Short & Sweet Reviews are short, quick reviews. These will mainly be used for series books where I have already done full reviews on some of the earlier books or for books that I feel will suffice with a quick review. These will not be used for review requests or blog tours.

My thoughts: I love these little Bookshot novellas - they are quick and pack quite the punch. This one was non-stop action, keeping you engaged and flipping the pages at lightning speed. It has non of the fluff or nonsense that the full-length novels have but gets straight to the heart of action and stays on point the entire time.

Gary Soneji, who was first introduced in Along Came a Spider and he then appeared again in Cat & Mouse, was one of my favorite villains and I loved that James Patterson brought him back. He supposedly died in front of Alex years ago...but did he really?

This one took an emotional path I was not expecting and I am quite eager to how this will play out in future books. I was not, however, happy with the cliffhanger...that was not cool. But the only good thing is that because I am so far behind in the series, I don't have to wait too long to find out what comes next...just have to wait until I find the time to read the next book.
