Triple Cross is the newest installment in Patterson’s Alex Cross series. Alex is investigating a serial murderer they call the FamilyMan, who expertly enters houses and kills each family member one by one. In the meantime, his wife Bree, a private investigator, is hired by an anonymous client to break into the world of fashion designer Frances Ducharme and her involvement in a possible sex ring scheme.
As always, with this series, Patterson will not disappoint as Alex’s cat-and-mouse chase leads him to an author name Thomas Tull who turns true crime into bestselling books. I felt like most of the book, however, was dedicated to Bree’s mission where she gets thrown out of a party, fitted for a dress that costs over five grand, surveil’s a party where people end up assassinated, and gets shot at. I really liked how the chapters alternate between both stories and how the stories melt together, slowly unraveling what truly happened. The details that Patterson uses for his characters and setting are immaculate, from the attire to the food and drink. Scrambled eggs with Boursin? Rose Taittinger? And don’t let me forget Bree’s new gay BFF fashion designer who helps her along the way. Luster is a fantastic addition to the cast, and I would love to see him in future books. Another fantastic Patterson book fans will go crazy over.
