Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever encountered - a predator known only as "the Wolf. "Alex Cross's first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks as if a shadowy figure called the Wolf - a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organize crime - is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves. Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home too. His ex-fiancee, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life - and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.

Kept me reading until the end, loved the emotion from the characters (specifically -more emotion and intellect from Cross was a highlight).

I was really enjoying this book until about 3/4's of the way in and then it felt like the author had gone past his deadline and had to finish no matter what. The last part felt extremely rushed

P.S. --> I don't believe in spoiling the surprises, so I won't. I will however try to increase anticipation by saying that I was on the edge of my seat with anticipation before the end of his very first chapter of the next one, London Bridges. And we know his chapters aren't so long.

I wish I hadn't made the mistake of reading London Bridges before reading Big Bad Wolf... London Bridges is an excellent sequel to BBW. Both books are great; however, BBW has Cross beginning his FB I career and introduces the Wolf, which helps set the stage to London Bridges (which is even more action packed). Patterson's Alex Cross books are outstanding ... enjoy them all!
