I, Alex Cross by James Patterson

The Alex Cross series are great murder mysteries.  This one takes Alex by surprise, since the victim is his estranged niece, and tangles it up in just grisly stuff and a connection to the White House.  Even after reading the whole series, it was hard to believe he was really that torn up about the niece.  More realistic was how hard it hit when Nana Mama is facing death.  The balance issue is getting harder to buy, too…his police work vs. his family.  The struggle to find balance is understandable…the inability to do something about it after all of these novels isn’t.  Nevertheless, I’ll read the next one when it comes out.
