Publisher's Summary

A killer is at work in the nation's capital, and he seems to like variety. His victims range from kindergarten students to senators - not even the President is safe. Alex Cross, hero of Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls, is awakened one night to confront the brutal murder of a little girl only blocks away from his house. With a single clue, a mysterious rhyme signed "Jack and Jill", the skilled and courageous Cross sets out to track the murderer. Can he work fast enough to spare the killer's next victim?

    "Mehhhhhhhh"

    It was ok.

    The sound effects were a bit weird. They actually served to spoil the mood / illusion not enhance it.

    "Entertaining Listen"

    I usually am not a fan of unabridged versions of books, but this one is an exception. I felt like I was listening to a radio show production of the book. it entertained me on my commute. Good story, a suspensful who dunnit.

    "BLAIR READ MORE TO ME!"
    Where does Jack and Jill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    To be fair, I have only listened to two books so far. This is second by only a half of a star. I am picking winners.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It could have been longer. The high school serial killer character could have been better developed. What was his background?


    What does Blair Underwood and John Rubinstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They both read the story like they were there. I was there. The two of them were excellent. I was watching the movie in my head.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had didn't laugh or cry, but I did gasp a couple of times. Since I listen at work, my coworkers were a little concerned.


    Any additional comments?

    Blair Underwood and John Rubinstein are great!

    Story
    "Nice twists"
    What did you love best about Jack and Jill?

    Attention to detail is always a good thing and the human interest helps bond to the character, but the many unexpected twists in the storyline keeps you going from daydreaming about the presented facts to intense listening for new clues. The ending is not what I expected which helps me rate this book higher than many.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    With many crime novels, the ending becomes clear but the problem of resolution is unclear. With this book, just when the ending seems clear, there is a major twist that disrupts all preconceived notions. This technique engages the listener more, to the point you hang on every word.

    "Love the Alex Cross series"
    Any additional comments?

    James Patterson is one of my favorite authors. His stories always grab you from the first page and you don't want to put it down until you're finished; and then you can't wait to read the next one. I don't get a chance to read as often as I like, so being able to listen to the Alex Cross series on audible is a perfect way for me to catch up. This series in particular is my favorite. At the end of each book you want more; it's like an addiction. Jack and Jill is just as engrossing as Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls. James Patterson and Alex Cross never disappoints.

    "Great performance - pity about the soryline"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Blair Underwood and John Rubinstein ?

    This book disappointed - and how. So stretched was the story line that it was at breaking point. So lacking in credibility - it just cut lose.


    What could James Patterson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The plot was just fanciful. The poor Dr. was struggling to cope with one situation - so they were piled on ... and on.


    What about Blair Underwood and John Rubinstein ’s performance did you like?

    Ecellant performance - as an aside


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment- incredulity

    "Let me down a little bit"

    Jack and Jill was a brilliant concept, but the fact that the book followed two story lines was a little distracting. James Patterson always writes a compelling story, however i found this one to be less exciting than the the two that came before it.
