    The first of 17 books featuring Alex Cross (you may know him as Morgan Freeman in this movie and Kiss the Girls). These books are fantastic!

    Along Came a Spider Alex Cross series

    Along Came a Spider if the first of the Alex Cross series by Patterson. Book two, Kiss the Girls is probably more popular because of the movie. This is a great series, however, the last two books are lacking a little. I'm waiting for Kyle Craig to come back into Alex's world.

First Love- James Patterson

James Patterson readalikes. Patterson began his career writing fast-paced suspense novels, but he now publishes multiple series for adults in genres as diverse as crime thrillers, science fiction, historical fiction, and romance as well as books for teens. Whether writing edge-of-one’s seat suspense novels or heartwarming tales of romance and relationships, he captivates readers with sympathetic characters, short chapters, and compelling, labyrinthine plots. From Brownsburg Public Library.

We begin with Alex Cross, the detective introduced in ALONG CAME A SPIDER. He's back, and this time it's personal. Alex's favorite niece, Naomi, a beautiful young woman, disappears from school at Duke University. The trail of evidence points to Wylie, a serial killer who takes sexual perversion to new heights. Wylie works in the Chapel Hill and Durham area of the South; his partner in depravity, Rudolph, finds his women in and around southern California. They are both serial freaks who have learned that there's strength in numbers.

Witch and Wizard by James Patterson. During the New Order, Whit and Wisty Allgood realize that they are a witch and wizard, meant to defeat the all and powerful, The One who is the One

I remember turning to the last page and saying to myself, "What? No Way!" Done only as Patterson can.

I like all of James Patterson's books. I love mystery books.
