Now a major motion picture starring Tyler Perry, Matthew Fox, and Rachel Nichols.

Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, DC Police Department when an unknown shooter gunned down his wife, Maria, in front of him. Alex’s need for vengeance was placed on hold as he faced another huge challenge: raising his children without their mother.

Years later Alex is making a bold move in his life. He has left the FBI and set up practice as a psychologist once again. His life with Nana Mama, Damon, Jannie, and little Alex finally feels like it’s in order. He even has a chance at a new love.

Then Cross’ former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. Now Cross must go on the hunt for the most cunning, psychotic killer he has ever faced, and it pushes him dangerously close to the breaking point.

  • “The story whips by with incredible speed.”

  • “Dual narration heightens the conflict between Alex Cross, former FBI agent, and Michael Sullivan…Peter Jay Fernandez, the voice of Cross in almost all of Patterson’s audios, shows understanding of Alex’s humor and foibles, as well as his vulnerability in revisiting the painful death of his first wife and his inability to leave behind his life as a criminal tracker. Jay O. Sanders’ cold, ruthless tones portray Sullivan’s psychopathic zeal for threatening, killing, and torturing…The appeal of this book comes from the fascinating parallels between these two characters.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Rita Kay | 2/18/2014

    " Yes, it is part of a tired and predictable series, but I like the juxtaposition of a blood and guts mystery with a trying to be normal family. "

    " Excellent! One of the best of Alex Cross. Three murder investigations going at once, and a personal problem with a blogger out to get Alex. Highly recommend to Alex Cross fans. "

    " I liked it 3.5 stars so glad there was not a terrorist plot. Much better than the last one. "

    " Yes! Alex Cross is back :) I've been getting a little tired of the most recent Alex Cross stories, they'd become so predictable yet ridiculously far fetched. I know that pretty much all the Patterson books are far fetched but I do like that they're so addictive and exciting. It just felt like the author was churning out so many books per year that they were coming across as rushed and a bit boring. This is the best Alex Cross book I've read in so long, edge of the seat stuff. "
