Annotation:
In the 10th Alex Cross book, the now-FBI agent races the clock as he confronts two prior nemeses in a chilling scenario that threatens both the world at large and him personally. Armed men brusquely and brutally evacuate the small Nevada town of Sunrise Valley, which is subsequently obliterated by a fuel-air bomb. This action marks the opening salvo in a ploy by the vicious Russian mobster known as the Wolf (the villain from the previous Cross novel, THE BIG BAD WOLF). Aided by British murderer Colonel Geoffrey Shafer, aka "the Weasel," the Wolf heads a cabal of terrorists threatening to bomb several major world cities if their ransom demands, which total several billion dollars, are not met within the next four days. Tapped to head an international task force dedicated to foiling this sinister plot, Alex Cross quickly learns that the Wolf and the Weasel's plans also include personal revenge against Cross himself.
Author Bio
James Patterson
James Patterson grew up in Newburgh, New York, 50 miles north of New York City. Valedictorian of his class at the Christian Brothers school, St. Patrick's, in 1965, Patterson graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in English. He first entertained the idea of becoming a writer in 1971 when he worked as a college student in a mental institution, a job that afforded him abundant time to read. He came up with the idea for his first novel during that time, and five years later, after 26 rejection slips, his first effort, "The Thomas Berryman Number", appeared in bookstores. Since that time, Patterson has written numerous best-selling thrillers featuring the sensitive, modern-day hero Alex Cross, including "Kiss the Girls", which was made into a major motion picture starring Morgan Freeman.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"Any thriller writer, wannabe or actual, would do well to study [LONDON BRIDGES]....[I]n Cross, Patterson continues to elaborate his finest hero, cerebral yet emotional, dedicated yet flawed, caught between duty and family." 11/08/2004
