The President’s son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark.

A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced.

As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes—one that may alter the fate of the entire country. Kill Alex Cross is faster, more exciting, and more tightly wound than any Alex Cross thriller James Patterson has ever written.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Patterson’s Kill Alex Cross is thriller with family at its heart…It’s Patterson at the top of his game…Underneath the fast-and-furious action, Patterson is exploring what it means to be a father, a man, and, ultimately, a human being in an increasingly complex and dangerous world.”

    Washington Post

  • “Andre Braugher and Zack Grenier are a perfect team in this new Alex Cross thriller, perhaps one of the best…Braugher’s straightforward portrayals of Cross and his cronies are outstanding, and Grenier’s accents and characterizations of the villains are chilling. A kidnapper’s insane laugh reaches right into your gut. Sound effects—music, gunshots, car chases—all contribute to the fast-paced action.”


  • “The eighteenth Alex Cross thriller seethes with fast-breaking action.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Rachel | 2/16/2014

    " Fast paced and fun. Not too much depth, but good enough for the elliptical. I will say he overused the term 'high jingo' - we get it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jaynessa Campbell | 1/27/2014

    " Honestly, I've noticed serious decline in James Patterson's works for some time now, since he's no co-writing nearly all of his books and cranking them out faster than a printing press! This book was no exception, it's just not up to the standards I've come to expect from his work, and the only reason I read it was because I'm massively addicted to Alex Cross novels. Though with the quality of this book so low, I may have to reconsider that position. This book was left so open ended, and that's just not typical of a Cross novel. Only half the book had resolution, and even that wasn't what I've come to expect. It was a disappointment. "

    " Good book, as usual but not one of my favorite Cross books. I love Cross though and cannot wait for the next one. "

    " Two different story lines with predictable endings., but as always with James Patterson, an entertaining read. "
