Just when Alex thought his life was calming down into a routine of patients and therapy sessions, he finds himself back in the game—this time to catch a criminal mastermind like no other.

A spate of elaborate murders in Washington, DC, have the whole East Coast on edge. They are like nothing Alex Cross and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever seen. With each murder, the case becomes increasingly complex. There’s only one thing Alex knows: the killer adores an audience.

As victims are made into gruesome spectacles citywide, inducing a media hysteria, it becomes clear to Alex that the man he's after is a genius of terror—and he's after fame. The killer has the whole city by its strings—and he’ll stop at nothing to become the most terrifying star that Washington, DC, has ever seen.

Quotes & Awards

  • Double Cross is double excitement from the most popular crime sleuth in the business.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • Double Cross is one of Patterson’s best works to date, full of action and excitement. One cannot read Double Cross without feeling as if there are even bigger things yet to come from Cross and his creator.”


  • “Even newcomers will find themselves turning the pages to see how everything turns out.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Peter J. Fernandez and Michael Stuhlbarg deftly manage the multiple characters in this thriller, carrying the listener through the various, and often confusing, layers, sliding over the plot holes and inconsistencies, and galloping to a breathtaking climax.”


  • “It was smart to hire two talented and very different readers for Patterson’s latest blockbuster...Fernandez catches Alex’s raspy wisdom with instant credibility...and Stuhlbarg is full of lighter charm as the narrator and one of the two serial killers who are trying to spoil Cross’ return to private practice. Stuhlbarg makes Alex’s former FBI colleague Kyle Craig...as charismatic as he is deadly.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Marianne | 2/17/2014

    " Lots of unrealistic hero stuff from Patterson, who has the weirdest killers on the planet. And of course Alex Cross always gets his crook, with a little help from his friends who live to sleuth another day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nicole | 2/13/2014

    " This book felt a bit like a set up for the next one, it was a good quick read. It felt just a bit like filler for the series and building the drama for the next one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Gary Johnson | 2/6/2014

    " Good story line but the ending did not support the plot. The characters were complex and the ending too simple, "
