This book is about Alex Cross, a homicide detective. I have loved to read about Alex, you find more and more about him every book. You don't have to read them in order, the one book I haven't read of him is the first one.

Not one of his best. Very average. 5 of 10 for me.

OK, this is a bit difficult of a review for me to write. I am a big Alex Cross and James Patterson fan. The book was entertaining, well-written and a good read BUT it was disapppointing. What is it with Patterson? The last book I read contained two completely different plots between the first half and second half of the book. Roses are Red contains half a book and is just a setup for a future book. Although the killer is finally identified (I don’t want to give anything away), nothing is resolved. So you feel like you invested reading the whole book, but don’t get the satisfaction at the end. So I have to downgrade what would have been a strong 8 down to a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10.
