    Story
    (537)

    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
    What would have made Cross My Heart better?

    There is NO ending, only a promise to write one more book. Mr. Patterson all but destroys his beloved character by taking away his family at Easter.


    What could James Patterson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write the whole story and stop thinking about the next book.


    What aspect of Michael Boatman and Tom Wopat ’s performance would you have changed?

    Very good readers


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Cross My Heart?

    Most of the story


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of the Alex Cross series and this is the first book that I feel as if I have been cheated. Mr. Patterson takes away Alec's family and the book ends abruptly with the reader wondering if Alex's family is dead or alive. There is no mystery here only sad writing and an attempt to almost destroy Alex Cross. Why do this Mr. Patterson?
