Publisher's Summary

When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man--the African warlord known as the Tiger. Just when the detectives think they're closing in on the elusive murderer, the Tiger disappears into thin air. Tracking him to Africa, Alex knows that he must follow. Alone.

    "Makes the drive pass faster!"

    I love listening to books on a long trip, and this one did not disappoint. James Patterson is one my of very favorite authors, and while some of the books are a little slow getting into, I didn't find this one to be like that. I recommend it, although some of the material is a little tough to handle.

    "Spellbinding"

    Very enjoyable Book, with plenty of plot twist to keep you wondering what was going to happen next. James Patterson's books with Alex Cross always have been one of my favorites. You won't be disappointed.

    "Another good Cross story"

    I always enjoy hearing about Alex's predicaments. This was a good one with lots of foreign intrigue. The narrators did a great job.

    "Cross Country Review"

    I found this Audiobook to be quite exciting and enjoyed the narration. While I can't quite picture a Morgan Freeman in the role of Alex Cross for this book, it was narrated very well and I particularly liked the audio enhancements and sound effects during suspenseful moments during chase scenes.

    "Patterson has lost his touch-HUGE dissappointment"

    I used to be a huge Patterson fan. His earlier Alex Cross novels were fun, engaging listens. The last three or four books (Big Bad Wolf going forward) have been going down hill and this was a HUGE disappointment. I keep hoping Patterson will go back to what made him great, but I just don't think it's going to happen. It saddens me, but I think I am done with Alex Cross novels.

    As many Alex Cross books I have read and listened to this one had me emotionally attached to the point I was in tears.

    "Very Disappointing"

    I've read every Alex Cross book that James Patterson has ever written. I love this character. However, similar to how Thomas Harris betrayed his characters in his Hannibal Lector book series, James Patterson has betrayed the character of Alex Cross.
    This book is a complete contradiction of Alex' rational and intelligent character. The plot is far-fetched and completely unbelievable. Patterson has become so obsessed with mass producing his books (most of which he now "co-writes"), that his is no longer loyal to his characters.
    Don't waste you time reading this comic book.

    "Cross Country, should read, Cross International"

    Having followed Alex Cross through all of his cases and adventures, I was mildly disturbed to find him traveling to Africa after a perpetrator. He was completely out of his league and the torture and indignities he was subjected to was excessive. I don't know what the authors reasons were to subject his readers to the human sufferings of the African social-political atmosphere but we get plenty of exposure from CNN and other news agencies, without buying a book from what had been a favorite author, to only find we have been used as an outlet for his soap box on human issues. I'll be very careful about what I read from this author in the future.

    "Disappointing"

    I have listened to all of the Alex Cross books but this was by far the most disappointing. It turned into a 7 hour lecture on the problems in Africa. The story started out well but when the killer flew back to Africa, Alex inexplicably followed him by himself. Forget back up, the fact he had never been in Africa, etc. Alex was going to get his man. It was far-fetched and unbelievable.
