Who’s afraid? Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever encountered: a predator known only as the Wolf. Alex Cross’ first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks like a shadowy figure known as the Wolf, a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime, is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves. You’re afraid. Even as he admires the FBI’s vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau’s clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home, too. His ex-fiancie, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life—and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped. Full of the unexpected twists and heartrending surprises that James Patterson delivers better than any other suspense writer alive, The Big Bad Wolf is an unforgettable thriller.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Full of the unexpected twists and heartrending surprises that James Patterson delivers better than any suspense writer alive, The Big Bad Wolf is an unforgettable thriller.” New York Times
“Awesome.” Independent on Sunday (London)
“Vastly entertaining…Full of plot surprises and featuring a balanced mix of intrigue, hard action, and angst, the novel…grips from start to finish. The Alex Cross series remains Patterson’s finest, and this is the finest Cross in years.” Publishers Weekly
“Cross’ first major case with the FBI will have readers on the edge of their seats, swiftly turning the pages to the exciting showdown.” Booklist
“As the complex plot unfolds, narrators Peter J. Fernandez and Denis O’Hare offer a variety of stunning characterizations. Alex has clarity and energy, the Wolf is vicious and sadistic, and the cyber-weirdos, particularly Mr. Potter and the Art Director, are despicable. Patterson’s plot, rife with imprisonment, torture, rape, and murder, gives Fernandez and O’Hare plenty to sink their teeth into.” AudioFile
