Spooky or what? Another book in the same review update about the second coming! (see Turbulent Priests) This one has a dual thread, two (supposed) virgins both pregnant - which is the real one? You do not find out until the last, but both are subjected to some fairly serious investigation.

I must admit, this was not as I expected, Patterson usually writes of killers and psychopaths versus heroes, and the twists and turns of their relationships. But this was more like a Dean Koontz supernatural-type story. That is not to say that I did not enjoy it, but I like the other kind better. I hope that this was just a pre-millennial itch that he needed to scratch. I would like to see another one of the Alex Cross stories - I like him.
