The only way…

Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene of the biggest case he’s ever been part of. The President’s son and daughter have been abducted from their school—an impossible crime, but somehow the kidnapper has done it. Alex does everything he can but is shunted to the fringes of the investigation. Someone powerful doesn’t want Cross too close.

To stop Alex Cross…

A deadly contagion in the DC water supply threatens to cripple the capital, and Alex sees the looming shape of the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced. He is already working flat-out on the abduction, and this massive assault pushes Cross completely over the edge.

Is to kill him

With each hour that passes, the chance of finding the children alive diminishes. In an emotional private meeting, the First Lady asks Alex to please save her kids. Even the highest security clearance doesn’t get him any closer to the kidnapper—and Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes.

A full-throttle thriller with unstoppable action, unrestrained emotion, and relentless suspense, Kill Alex Cross is the most gripping Alex Cross novel 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.”

    " audio -- Basically this is a waste of my time. when Alex Cross is more important than the first kids that is above the threshold. The pace of the book is way too slow. "
