    "Bad Narrator equals Bad Book"

    This is my first and last purchase of an Audible Alex Cross novel by James Patterson. There are two different narrators here and it is like night and day. The reader of Alex Cross' voice is genuinely terrible! He is mono-toned, has no inflection, no acting ability, and hurries through the reading like he is just trying to get it done, rather than interest the listener. Who thought this reader would be a good choice? Incredibly bad decision.

    The other reader was pretty decent but does not make up for the Alex Cross voice. The reader of an Audible book has a responsibility to entertain the listener, but the opposite has happened here.
    I may have given this book more stars if the reader had done a good job, but because he ruined the listening experience, the book gets one star.

    "Where is Alex Cross?"

    I agree with Sam (below). Andre Braughter is no Peter Fernandez (aka Alex Cross). I enjoyed the flow of the Cross Fire, especially learning what Kyle Craig has up his sleeve, hovwever the ending was a bit anti-clamatic for me; just my humble opinion.

    "Let down"

    The story is a bit dry. Not the level of suspense we've had with Cross novels of the past. We've also had enough Kyle Craig. Hopefully this is his true demise. Too much Alex and Bree action. This is a suspense novel, not soft porn. The narrator doesn't compare to Cross narrator's of the past.

    "Finally"

    Finally he was eliminated. It was beginning to feel like The Fugitive series years ago where he constantly gets away. Didn't keep my interest like some of his other stories.

    "Another excellent read"

    I love all of James Patterson's novels and this one is no exception. It keeps you on your toes and involved.

    The only criticism I have is that the female voices were read in the same voice as the males, unlike previous books in the series.

    I would highly recommend this!

    "It felt like I was there"

    The narrators brought this book to life. Wouldn't mind listening to it again. Can't wait to buy the next book.
