Description

Cross's family - his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children--have been ripped away. I was giving up on the Cross series because I felt the writing was going downhill as the series progressed and I was not enjoying them as I did the earlier ones.

If the reader can suspend disbelief regards the place and manner the hostages are held, Cross’s post-crash climb, the extreme convenience of the former profession of Mulch’s accomplice and the current career of Gloria Jones, then some quite good investigation keeps the story rolling at a fast pace.Following the cliffhanger that was met with mixed receptions at the end of Cross My Heart Alex Cross’s life is collapsing around him. He is the author of some of the most popular series of the past two decades – the Alex Cross, Women’s Murder Club, Detective Michael Bennett and Private novels – and he has written many other number one bestsellers including romance novels and stand-alone thrillers. This book however was more like the old James Patterson with thrills spills, good characters told in the usual style of short punchy chapters.

It helps that the antagonist is also in true Patterson style, pulled off well as incredibly evil and feels refreshingly memorable. A single-case focus in this novel also keeps the pace easier to handle, as the reader need not divide the brain into too many sub-parts to keep the larger story straight. Next, the elusive gunman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories: is the marksman a hero or a vigilante? You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. You can state your good intentions, you can imagine the life you want, but you can’t negotiate with Him.

What should be a time for her to rely on Alex for support and cooperation is instead a moment of crisis in their marriage as well as their city when their investigative instincts clash and their relationship reaches a breaking point. Having churned out some drivel in the past, he is now able to rectify this with some down to earth writing. The harder the investigators push, the more resistance they find when they leave behind the polite law offices and doctors' quarters of the state capital.

Is this the plan of an obsessed fan or a spurned actor, or is it part of something much more frightening? If you haven’t read at least one Alex Cross novel and you’re a crime fan then you’re missing out on something really awesome – by and large they can be read as standalones, but there are some that interlink and this one follows on from the end of Cross My Heart very well, so you’re better off going back a few before you get to this one.

While John Sampson of DC Metro Police investigates the last movements of Christopher Randall, the educator killed along with Kay Willingham, detective Alex Cross and FBI special agent Ned Mahoney find unanswered questions from Willingham's past, before she arrived in DC and became known in DC society as someone who could make things happen. Discovering the identity of this lethal genius will prove to be Cross's most terrifying challenge ever. I don’t know whether it was because James Patterson wrote this one on his own (instead of having co-authors for previous books in the series), but this book was great.

Chasing a ghost he believed was long dead, Cross gets pulled into a case that has local cops scratching their heads and needing his help: a grisly string of socialite murders. In a race against time, he must defeat Mulch, and find his wife and children - no matter what it takes. The others are Violets Are Blue, Four Blind Mice, The Big Bad Wolf, London Bridges, so it’s safe to say that I’m a big fan of the series even if the more recent entries have been hit and miss in places. The killer has the whole city by its strings-and he'll stop at nothing to become the most terrifying star that Washington D.On his visits home, Alex must confront another, more harrowing mystery: what's the matter with Nana Mama? Alex Cross] has become one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time, a character for the ages.
