Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This compulsive author brings Alex Cross to London as global terrorism escalates and the city is under threat. Patterson’s short chapters all seem to end in cliff hangers so it’s nigh near impossible to put him down.

Comparison: Lee Child, Jeffrey Deaver, Michael Connelly.

Similar this month: William Landay.

If you like James Patterson you might also like to read books by Lee Child, Michael Connelly and C.J. Box.

Synopsis

London Bridges by James Patterson

Alex Cross is on vacation when he gets the call. A city in Nevada has been annihilated and the Russian super-criminal known as the Wolf is claiming responsibility. In a matter of hours, Cross is catapulted into an international chase of astonishing danger. Arriving in London to join forces with Scotland Yard and Interpol, Alex fights his way through a torrent of false leads, impersonators and foreign agents before he gets close to the heart of the crimes. Then, in the most unforgettable finale James Patterson has ever written, Alex Cross confronts the truth of the Wolf’s identity – a revelation that even Cross himself may be unable to survive.
