In broad desert daylight, a mysterious platoon of soldiers evacuates the entire population of Sunrise Valley, Nevada. Minutes later, a huge bomb detonates a hundred feet above the ground and lays waste to homes, cars, and playgrounds: a town annihilated in an instant.

Alex Cross is on vacation in San Francisco with his girlfriend, Jamilla Hughes, when he gets the call. The Russian supercriminal known as the Wolf claims responsibility for the blast.

Major cities around the globe are threatened with total destruction. The Wolf has proven he can do it; the only question is, can anyone stop him in time? Surveillance film of the blast reveals the presence of another of Alex Cross’ most dangerous enemies, the ruthless assassin known as the Weasel.

World leaders have just four days to prevent an unimaginable cataclysm. Joining forces with Scotland Yard and Interpol, Alex fights his way through a torrent of false leads, impersonators, and foreign agents before he gets close to the heart of the crimes. Racing down the hairpin turns of the Riviera in the most unforgettable finale James Patterson has ever written, Alex Cross confronts the truth of the Wolf’s identity, a revelation that even Cross himself may be unable to survive.

Quotes & Awards

  • “If you feel like a roller coaster, breathless ride, London Bridges is the hottest ride in town.”

    Courier (Ballarat, Victoria, Australia)

  • “Any thriller writer, wannabe or actual, would do well to study Patterson’s tenth Alex Cross novel! Patterson continues to elaborate his finest hero, cerebral yet emotional, dedicated yet flawed, caught between duty and family.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Patterson’s action is fast and furious, and narrators Fernandez and O’Hare do a fine job of keeping up with him. O’Hare does especially well with his performance of the Wolf…Fernandez brings a warm humanity to Cross…Performances are accompanied by well-placed music and sound effects.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Toni Osborne | 2/3/2014

    " This book has short chapters and simple writing; it is a very easy read. The story was captivating enough to keep me glued to the plot but I found the ending deceiving, it seemed in my opinion to have been written in haste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faaizz d zul | 1/17/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 11/1/2013

    " This is the first Patterson book that I've read. It moves along in 1st person from action to action, without enough character development or intrigue to really get me hooked. Fast read even for me, a very slow reader. Lee child is preferable in this genre for me at least. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 10/16/2012

    " This plot felt a bit too far-fetched. He was all over the place, and it was a little unbelievable. That being said, it's Alex Cross, and I love the character, so it wasn't a disappointment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 8/14/2012

    " This was the first book of the Alex cross series that I got bored with reading. Yes it has the usual Patterson suspense but the story line of terrorism is not good. One of the few things I do not enjoy reading about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kw | 2/6/2012

    " One of the best Alex Cross novels. Quite violent, and I either missed a line or two or he had one or two loose threads, but who cares? Great story. (A synopsis of all the Alex Cross books to this point is included, which is nice for people like me who read them out of order.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 9/19/2011

    " This is a great Patterson - but better if you've read the previous books first. Good twists - keeps you guessing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather Willson | 9/8/2011

    " Glad this wasn't my first Patterson, or I might not have read any more. I don't get the infatuation with Cross. I'm listening to it on audiobook, and fell asleep twice - I've never done that with an audio book before... "

    " Loving this book. Borrowed from a friend it gripped me in the first couple of chapters. Chapters are very short. Certainly a page turner following Alex Cross chasing The Wolf and The Weasel before various cities are blown up. "
