My cell, it just seems easier

I'm not sure but I'm always looking to make new connections and friends via the blogosphere. It keeps life fun!
I almost always get up with my husband when he works days so after he left this morning I curled back up in bed with latest book and here are my thoughts.
Cross Country by James Patterson
From the inside jacket:
When the home of Alex Cross's longtime friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, he is devastated. The destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend Brianna Stone begin the hunt for the villain responsible for the killings, they quickly find themselves entangeled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C.. What they discover is shocking: a strongly organized gang of teenage thugs headed by a powerful, diabolical man-The Tiger.
As the killing spree escalates, Alex and Brianna realize they are not dealing with any ordinary killer, but one who has brought his personal war of vengeance to America's capital. But just when the detectives think they're closing in on the elusive murderer, the Tiger disappears into thin air. Unable to let the killer get away with this narrow escape, Alex makes it his duty to bring the brutal butcher to justice. He knows that he must follow The Tiger. Alone.
When Alex arrives in Nigeria, he discovers a world where justice is as foreign as he is. Unprotected and alone in a strange country, bombarded on all sides by the murderous threats of The Tiger, Alex must draw on his fiercest instincts just to survive in a lawless world.
Well, what can I possibly say about this book except that I've been in love with Alex Cross from the very first book I read ages ago. Saying that, whenever a new Cross book comes out I read it no matter what. I really like the short chapters. I don't read it for the amazing dialogue, complex story plot, or the top-notch writing. Yes, I'm being a little sarcastic here :). I read them because I am a passenger on Alex Cross's bus of life. I want to see where he goes, what he does, and if he will ever be happy with what he has. Another reason that I read these is because I'm always satisfied with the story, I don't set myself up for being disappointed, and I never have to invest more than a day or two reading them. So now I sit here eagerly awaiting the next Cross book because I have a feeling our old twisted buddy, Kyle, is coming back into the picture!!!
