Along Came a Spider by James Patterson

The first in the series of Detective Alex Cross.

Following a kidnapping of 2 children, with wealthy well known parents, by their well respected Maths Teacher: Soneji, Cross is requested to deliver the ransom.

It’s a quite fast paced and entertaining thriller and we start to see the warped, but very clever ways of Soneji’s thinking early on,however I feel that we do not find out enough about the inner workings of Cross, although as the book progresses we do start to see his character more. I believe it’s an easy read and well worth trying out for those that enjoy the crime/thriller genre. For me it was certainly a page turner, although to be a 5 star for me it would have needed a bit more emotional depth, but I am certainly looking forward to reading the next in the series.
