Publisher Description

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING TYLER PERRY

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's 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.

"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."

Quotes

  • “Cross’ competence and vulnerability make a stark contract with Sullivan’s sadistic mutilations and psychological manipulations of his victims.”

    — Publishers Weekly
  • “The story whips by with incredible speed.”

    — Booklist
  • “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.”

    " Just when I think I might be done reading Patterson, Alex Cross brings me back. I find that I enjoy the Cross series and the Michael Bennett books. Most of the other stories just aren't that memorable. Now I am starting Guilty Wives, so I will see if that theory holds true. "

    " I thought this book was really good. It was much better than the last few Alex Cross books. It didn't feel like James Patterson rushed through it like the last several books. Good plot and finish. I still wish that Alex worked more with Sampson, but I guess we'll have to take what we get. "
