When the home of Alex Cross’ oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he’s chasing a horrible new breed of killer. Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington, DC and what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man, an African warlord known as the Tiger.

Just when the detectives think they’re closing in on the elusive murderer, the Tiger disappears into thin air. But when the Tiger’s trail turns up in Africa, Alex knows that he must follow. Unprotected and alone, can Alex manage to both survive and catch the killer?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Patterson’s most compelling protagonist at the top of his thrilling game.”

    Barnes & Noble review

  • “Fernandez is ably assisted by Dion Graham...Fernandez so powerfully tells the story of Cross’ efforts to capture an international killer called ‘The Tiger’ that the listener’s fists knot with the tension as Cross’ fortunes go from bad to worse. The bloody trail that leads to the ending makes Cross’ ultimate success the kind he cannot afford to repeat.”


  • “Spending less time than usual exploring his villains psychological backstory, Patterson delivers an atypical tale of James Bond–style revenge.”

    Publisher's Weekly

  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

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

    " Not my favorite of the Alex Cross novels. He has always been obsessed with catching the killers he is chasing, but he rarely risks his own family. And in this case, he seems to not care. Nana should tan his butt. It seems out of character for him. But maybe that's just where we are headed in his mind. Hmmmm. . . . "

    " This one's an eyeroller. Very simplistic writing. The story is just way over the top. This was my first James Patterson book and I'm sure it will be my last. This book reeks of a quickly cranked out bad detective novel. And there is no way anyone could buy that the detective in this story, Alex Cross, has a doctorate in anything. "

    " Finished reading James Patterson's - Cross Country. In life there are moments which set off events which link up to your future. In his quest to bring justice his family got involved and even worst he's in an unknown land with no one to help him. Yet he prevails through it all. Great book... :) "

    " A little gory and graphic. I have to keep putting it down and do something else since it's a little disturbing. "
