    Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

    Story
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Michael Boatman and Tom Wopat ?

    I'm so annoyed at the ending and the stupid author's explanation that I may not.


    Has Cross My Heart turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Hoping to find a new author to spend money on.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Boatman and Tom Wopat – was your favorite?

    The one that finished the story. Oh...wait...that one didn't exists.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment! I get one vacation a year to hibernate and read a good book. This book has no ending. Cheap trick Mr. Patterson.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have been so much happier with the story if it had been labeled "Book 1 of 2" because then after 10 hours I won't be so shocked at the lack of resolution. I would have rather spent my rare vacation time listening to a story that wrapped it up. Feeling a bit cheated! In fact, his author's note at the end made it even worse. He might as well have just ended it with "Alex woke up and realized it was all a dream and ate some pie with Nana Mama".

    Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene. Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival. The dead woman looks exactly like Maura.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Kathe Mazur’s performances?

    No, I was not pleased at all. It lacked so much enthusiasm, I had to stop listening every now and then just to get my energy back.

    A serial killer watches and waits. Each time, he takes two victims, preparing the first's body with all the clues the police need to find the second, who is still alive. The clock ticks, and the second one can still be saved. But the police never make it in time. The second one dies. For years, the killer has plagued the city with the same pattern, but the police never pick up on it quickly enough.

    The narrators attempts to do the male voices were laughable. I wish I had listened to the sample before I purchased the book. I would not have purchased it. I honestly don't even want to finish listening and I'm not even half way through.

    It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.

    Myron Bolitar, sports agent and reluctant sleuth, is happily basking in the Caribbean sun with a beautiful woman he hardly knows. Interrupting this bliss, Win, his loyal but morally questionable sidekick, arrives to tell him that Esperanza, Myron's best friend and partner at MB SportsReps, has been arrested for the murder of a fallen baseball star and Bolitar client.

    Evelyn says: "you gotta like this guy"
    "Not Harlan's typical page turner"
    Overall

    I have loved every book of his so far and this is probably the least suspenseful. It seemed like it just kept dragging on forever. I kept waiting for it to get exciting.
