From the critics
Frightening or Intense Scenes: As usual, Patterson creates another criminal who is deranged. Mr. Smith is sick.
Violence: "Mr. Smith" brutally kills his victims by performing autopsies on them. Also, Gary Soneji goes on killing sprees. These are not described in as graphic detail as usual by Patterson, however.
Sexual Content: Alex Cross hooks up again. I understand that Cross battling the ghost of his wife's passing is part of the story line, but sometimes I thing that Patterson is trying to make him out to be James Bond. Does he really nedd to go into detail about Cross's sexual exploits?
