For other reviewers--please resist revealing the ENTIRE plot in your reviews. Sheesh, it would be nice to have at least ONE surprise left while reading. (Although in this particular book there's not much "plot" to reveal.)
First, James Patterson actually had Cross do some investigative work. In the last several novels in the series, Cross tended to stumble upon leads and just wait for the 'bad guy' to screw up. In 'The Big Bad Wolf,' Cross puts his doctorate in Psychology to work. In addition, he follows his instincts and follows leads that not every one else had thought about.
Second, Patterson seemed to put more thought and effort into this novel. In past novels, Patterson seemed to be living off the reputation of earlier novels in the series, such as 'Kiss the Girls' and 'Along Came a Spider.' More recent novels featured villains that were always one step ahead of the police without any real great tricks until Cross stumbles upon them. In 'Big Bad Wolf,' Patterson created lairs of intrigue from the beginning and lets them unfold throughout the novel instead of just springing them on the reader. In addition, a portion of the story takes place in Dallas, Texas. Since I live in the Dallas area, I was pleased to see that he did enough research to at least get most of the details of the area correct.
Third, and this is a very minor spoiler, the 'bad guy' of the novel is not some high ranking government official or someone close to Cross. This theme had gotten redundant in recent novels in the series.Read more ›

James Patterson is a fantastic story-teller! Big Bad Wolf is one of his best. I haven't read them all yet,
but I sure am going to. Read more
As always, James Patterson, and Alex Cross, provide a great read. Cross is always running up against a new threat, and each one is relevant to the times in which we live.Published 21 months ago by R. W. SIMPSON
I gave it as a gift to my mom and have not read it yet, I am sure it will be a nail biter as they always are. I will be glad when I get to read itPublished on Feb. 10 2012 by jordan brookes
Definitely not one of Patterson's better Cross books. While I am finding the whole series becoming very predictable and formulaic, this novel, and the second "wolf" installment,... Read morePublished on Dec 3 2011 by Blood, Sweat, & Carbs
Frankly, I had no idea this was going to be as long a book as it was. While I enjoyed 'Roses' and 'Kiss the Girls' I found them very different. Read morePublished on Sept. 22 2006 by Fan keller
I enjoyed the heck out of this, probably more so cause I just finished "Sam's letters to Jennifer" and it did nothing for me. Read morePublished on July 6 2004 by Colby Jordan
My all-time favorite Patterson is KISS THE GIRLS. I loved this book up until the end. There was no conclusion. Read morePublished on July 2 2004
First, let me praise the audio recording of this book.
Both actors were fantastic. The first-person reading of agent Alex Cross was phenomenal and the other characters were... Read more
