Now a major motion picture starring Tyler Perry.
Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, DC, Police Department when an unknown shooter gunned down his wife, Maria, in front of him. Alex's need for vengeance was placed on hold as he faced another huge challenge - raising his children without their mother.
Years later, Alex is making a bold move in his life. He has left the FBI and set up practice as a psychologist once again. His life with Nana Mama, Damon, Jannie, and little Alex finally feels like it's in order. He even has a chance at a new love.
Then Cross' former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. Now Cross must go on the hunt for the most cunning, psychotic killer he has ever faced... and it pushes him dangerously close to the breaking point. (Also published as Cross.)

It's typical James Patterson and Alex Cross, which I love. I had tried a couple of fiction that I did not enjoy, so I tried this one to see if it was just me with fiction. I love James Patterson's Alex Cross series and this audio book did not disappoint.
Near the end, when things start to happen really fast, I could hear the narrator's voice building and getting faster with the action in the book - I really liked that
I really liked the two readers, it made it easy to distinguish between the two characters, and I really liked the voice of the villan. I found the audio captured my attention, and made the suspenseful or the exciting parts come alive for me. I could hear the excitement rise in the voice and reacted to it. Made the book very enjoyable for me.
The only negative is that the book is a re-release of a previous book, and I did not realize this when I bought the Audible book. After listening, I went back to Audible and read the fine print which says it was previously released under another name. It was a book I had read a couple of years ago, so the story was not new, which was the only disappointment for me for this book. Had I known that, I would have chosen another book. Other than that, a great audio book! After listening I went to the theatre to see the movie with the same name, and although the movie somewhat followed the book, it was not the same story, many differences. I assumed if the book was re-released at the same time as the movie, then the movie would be the same story. There were some similarities, and the movie did not follow the book, so that was a bit disappointing. Not sure why the book was re-released, and it should have indicated this in bigger font or something at Audible.
Story twists keep you coming back for more.
John Grisham books. You hate to put them done without fininshing.
All I can say is they are both great narrators.
The ending I know it's going to be a Par 2. Can't wait.
If you have read or listened to "CROSS" you will find it to be very similary, in fact the SAME BOOK. Was not happy. THought I had a new book.
Say something about yourself!
Yes, I already have. Great story and the narrator. Is easy to listen to.
Kill Alex Cross and Cross Fire.
Good but I prefer Andre Braugher narration.
Alex's love of his family.
Great story line. Keep them coming..
I liked how the unresolved story of what happened to his wife (Maria) is finally resolved
No, but its a good story
Both are wonderful narrators
Everyone should have a friend like the character John Sampson
