The pinnacle of all Alex Cross thrillers is now available as a value-priced audiobook!

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. The killer was never found, and the case turned cold, filed among the unsolved drive-bys in D.C.'s rough neighborhoods.

Years later, still haunted by his wife's death, Cross is making a bold move in his life. Now a free agent from the police and the FBI, he's set up practice as a psychologist once again. His life with Nana Mama, Damon, Jannie, and little Alex is finally getting in order. He even has a chance at a new love.

Then Cross's former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. He is tracking a serial rapist in Georgetown, one whose brutal modus operandi recalls a case Sampson and Cross worked together years earlier. When the case reveals a connection to Maria's death, Cross latches on for the most urgent and terrifying ride of his life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Forensic psychologist Alex Cross’ storied career…has brought him into contact with all kinds of seriously disturbed killers, but his twelfth outing from bestseller Patterson may be the ultimate in lunatic deadliness…Cross’ competence and vulnerability make a stark contrast with Sullivan’s sadistic mutilations and psychological manipulations of his victims. Fans know that Cross will survive, but at what cost?”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Even as the story whips by with incredible speed, Patterson manages to pack it full of suspense, emotion, and a resolution that, while perfectly satisfying, carries the author’s trademark teaser hinting at the ‘more’ that surely will come.”


  • “Dual narration heightens the conflict between Alex Cross, former FBI agent, and Michael Sullivan, ‘the Butcher of Sligo.’ 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.”


  • A #1 New York Times bestseller

    " Ok, a bit far fetched for a mystery novel, more like a Clancy novel with the president ties and all but a good read. Better than the last. Worth reading if you enjoy Patterson. "

    " Only one star for the abridged audiobook version. The Jack and Jill premise was cute but in this abridgment neither detective Alex Cross nor the villains were either compelling or memorable. "

    " Good book. 3rd instalment of the Alex Cross series. Plenty of twists and turns along the way, probably too many twists for my liking but didnt spoil my enjoyment. Now onto Cat & Mouse...... "

    " I thought I would try a James Patterson book and I picked it up at the Meridian Library for $2.00. It is just not my cup of tea! I just don't like violence - in movies or in books! "
