Detective Alex Cross and Bree’s wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington, DC’s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and a scheming lobbyist. Next, the elusive marksman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories—is the marksman a hero or a vigilante?

The case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction. As Alex struggles with the sniper, Siegel, and the wedding, he receives a call from his deadliest adversary, Kyle Craig. The Mastermind is in DC and will not relent until he has eliminated Cross—and his family—for good. With a supercharged blend of suspense, action, and deception, Cross Fire is James Patterson’s most exciting Alex Cross novel ever.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheryl | 2/20/2014

    " I have read most of the Alex Cross books, they have gotten very predictable but still entertaining. In this book Kyle Craig is back. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathie | 2/18/2014

    " The story has lots of twists. Patterson is back to his usual good story telling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Schoesler | 2/15/2014

    " Cross Fire had all the elements that I enjoy in an Alex Cross book. Mystery, intrigue, a balance between the Alex's role as a detective and as a family man, and above all an ending that does not leave me confused or wanting more. In Cross Fire Detective Cross once again finds himself involved in a serial murder case in D.C. He is also planning his wedding to Bree Stone. Oh, and his old nemesis, Kyle Craig is back in town. I thought that the book did a great job of balancing all the story lines and unlike some of the most recent Alex Cross books I have read, it didn't seem rushed at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Schneider | 2/13/2014

    " Typical Patterson. Entertaining light read that was mostly predictable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sandra | 1/31/2014

    " What do I think? I think James Patterson should have said good bye to Alex when he drove him over the cliff. The first books were great. I still recommend those to any one who enjoys a good mystery. But this is the last of my relationship with Alex Cross. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amos | 1/23/2014

    " Is the FBI that "easy"? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gerald Neal | 1/23/2014

    " Fairly routine thriller but kept my interest to the last page whilst waiting for a plane back to the UK from Phoenix. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 1/16/2014

    " Good mystery and engaging as James Patterson usually is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy Johnson | 1/8/2014

    " Good to see Cross go up against and old enemy. Good ending, especially wwith the allusion to a coming book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Weston Kincade | 1/8/2014

    " A very good book that kept me entertained but dragged in a few places. Overall, I'd very much recommend it to fans of police thrillers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 12/6/2013

    " still passable to read. When will Alex Cross comes to an end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 11/25/2013

    " I enjoy James Patterson novels and have read almost all of them, especially the Alex Cross books. Cross Fire was a good read. Interesting plot. A must read if you love the Cross character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 10/21/2013

    " typical Alex Cross, lots of action and evil psycopath "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Caroline | 9/19/2013

    " Why do I keep on reading this series? The plots get more inane, the writing gets more pedantic, and I can see the outcome from a mile away. I could barely stand to finish this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce | 9/4/2013

    " I love the Alex Cross series and always look forward to the next book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sue Ann | 4/1/2013

    " Testosterone ain't material for a great story. Story arc promising but not developed, sub-plots seem disjointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 9/1/2012

    " I think this is another series that is getting a little long... Seems far fetched that this man (and his family) could be hunted down by a serial killer for 10 books, yet they are still alive and well. Still, it kept me interested with an easy to follow plot and LIKABLE characters! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larry | 7/21/2012

    " Haven't read any Alex Cross in a while. Fun, easy and quick. "

    " As always a fast paced romp! Couldn't believe how close Kyle Craig actually got to Alex. Nice way to spend a snow day! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobby | 10/2/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 blmagm | 6/21/2011

    " I somewhat plodded through the first half, but the second half gained momentum with each turn of the page. Interesting to read this right after following the news about the Dorner manhunt. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lasha | 5/22/2011

    " Worst book in the series. Do not waste your time on this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 5/20/2011

    " It was intriguing, but hard to hold my interest w/ so much of the setting in Africa. The issues there are ones I do not connect with, but in his writing Patterson does reveal more of our global injustices. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy | 5/12/2011

    " This was in the usual Patterson style and I loved it. The plot is gripping, fast and doesn't let go.

    Really do appreciate this writer. Hasn't let me down as a reader yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rev | 5/11/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 5/3/2011

    " The pace was good.Still an enjoyable book.Quote.As one approaches an elder's statues, one ceases to indulge in battles.Unquote, just like the book -JP- story is also ceasing to indulge in great story line battles..his previous Alex Cross is so much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 4/30/2011

    " James Patterson's Alexander Cross make for an interesting, if gruesome, read about family murders that are related to political unrest in Africa. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 4/28/2011

    " This Alex Cross thriller is a little different, as Alex travels to Africa to catch his killer. A lot of plot twists in this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 4/22/2011

    " Typical, but he defied death even more in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Knowno | 4/13/2011

    " The usual j Patterson style fast paced exciting and keeps you on the edge oh your seat I listened to the audio version of this book and it was almost like being in the movies but without the visuals only what my mind conjured up good read I must say. Keep em coming mr Patterson "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Yvonne | 4/9/2011

    " Not one of his better novels. The constant and needlessly savage violence got rather annoying towards the end. Patterson has also had Alex Cross behave so entirely out of character that for much of the book I thought I was reading a Lee Child novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 4/3/2011

    " Not my favorite Cross book, but an enjoyable read. "
