Someone has killed one of the most powerful men in the U.S. Senate - and the whole world is watching. Someone has murdered a small black girl on the mean streets of Washington - and no one seems to care. But only D.C. homicide cop Alex Cross suspects that the evil striking down both the high and the lowly wears the same shocking face. From James Patterson, the sensational author of the bestsellers Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider, comes Jack & Jill, the #1 thriller that breaks all the rules - and shatters every nerve.
"Captivating....As always, Patterson provides a fast-paced thriller full of surprising but realistic plot twists....Cross is one of the best and most likable characters in the modern thriller genre".

This book opens with the execution style death of a sitting United States Senator and then brutal attack on a small child that leaves the reader gasping.
Dr. Cross is assigned to the child killing, and after the death of the second high profile individual, he is also assigned to work with the FBI during their investigation.
The book proceeds with twists and turns which more than keep the reader's attention.
This writer maintains his style of detail and exciting plot lines.
I like the fast pace of James Patterson's books and his short chapters. This is the second one I've read of the Alex Cross series. I'm a slow reader only because I don't read a book in one sitting. I read it in between writing my novels and researching writing techniques and participating on writing boards. I'd say though with this book I became a faster reader, wanting to finish it. It kept me on edge with one twist and turn and new info with each page as the mystery of whodunit unfolded and became clearer. It was definitely a page turner, hooking me from the first page to the last.
I purchased another author's book, which had excellent reviews, and could never keep my interest in the novel. I'm going to stick with James Patterson, Michael Connelly, and Michael Weaver for thrillers.
