Publisher Description

Alex Cross faces two crazed killers in this chilling, suspenseful blockbuster from James Patterson, "the man who can't miss" (Time).



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, D.C. 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 ,D.C. has ever seen.

"Alex Cross and Sampson investigate the murders by "The Audience Killer" who stages his murders so they happen in front of an audience; on stage, on a bridge overpass of a freeway, off the balcony of a high rise. Kyle Craig escapes from prison. "

Quotes

  • “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.”

    — Bookreporter.com
  • “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.”

    — AudioFile
  • “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.”

    " The book started off well and it seemed like it was going to be a good murder mystery solver but it turned out to be run of the mill kind. Don't think will read any more Patterson. "

    " This book is quite suspenseful and I read it very quickly...though I think that was because I just wanted to be done with it. Lots of murder and quite descriptive...not one to read when it's dark outside or before going to bed. I won't be looking for any more of this author's books! It was a bit too much for me. "
