I read the whole Michael Bennett series and am halfway through the woman's murder club, so i decided i needed a change in charectors and decided to start Patterson's Along Came A Spider. Although a good read after finishing this the 1st in the Cross series i'm stil a little leary on if i am going to take to this charector or not? I do have the big screen adaptation on stand by which i am going to watch real soon. Probably will like the book better as that's usually the case. A good read although with loads of plot twists and turns in it.
