    It's Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross has been called out to catch someone who's robbing his church's poor box. That mission behind him, Alex returns home to celebrate with Bree, Nana, and his children. The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again - a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who has a strong stomach for torture


    Has Merry Christmas, Alex Cross turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was okay, completely overshadowed by the disturbing images of the torture of children.


    Any additional comments?

    I always like the Alex Cross books, but I would have skipped this one entirely. I almost stopped reading it after the torture scene with the children, but I had hope it would get better. It really didnt. I was disturbed to the end. Not for me.

    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    "Good book"
    Overall

    Although some of the story was a little slow moving, I was still drawn into the characters, the storylines and the overall plot. I enjoyed the fantasy of Ann, James and Alex and felt the joy and the heartbreak of the their triangle relationship. I kept thinking the end was predictable, but it was not what I had assumed. I enjoyed Megan Hart's writing style and the portrayal of a good girl with sensible values, and her struggle with doing the right thing vs. doing the best thing throughout the story.
