This was my first James Patterson novel though I am familiar with the movie adaptations of his Alex Cross books.Spoilers below.I found this to be an easy read. I picked it up for a time killer while getting ready for the day and was pulled in. I enjoyed it up until the end. All throughout the book Ben and his friends were fighting for what was right but by the end they were just being deliberately provocative and my sympathy began to wane. The big twist at the end with FDR was so obvious you expected a well educated lawyer like Ben to see right through it. And then there was the family, no tension there, and they didn't even feel like characters, just templates.Everything just seemed to wrap up too quickly and it was all sorts of meh.
