Next, the elusive marksman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories - is the marksman a hero or a vigilante?

The case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction. As Alex struggles with the sniper, Siegel, and the wedding, he receives a call from his deadliest adversary, Kyle Craig. The Mastermind is in D.C. and will not relent until he has eliminated Cross--and his family - for good.

Solve another case with Alex Cross.

    "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.

    "True Patterson"
    If you could sum up Cross Fire in three words, what would they be?

    Worth the read


    What other book might you compare Cross Fire to and why?

    Any other James Patterson with Alex Cross book.


    What about Andre Braugher and Jay O. Sanders ’s performance did you like?

    They were great together and Mr. Braugher's voice was the perfect fit for Alex Cross. It was my first audio book and I'm afraid Mr.s Braugher and Sanders' set the bar pretty high for any other narrators. Listening to them didn't take away from the reader experience and kept me interested and paying attention from start to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    Patterson is already a great author, but I'll definitely buy more of his books in the audible format.

    "Outstanding..."
    What did you love best about Cross Fire?

    I admire how Cross does his best to balance home and work. Being a single parent, it is a difficult task. Especially, when work crosses over to home.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I was on the edge of my seat from the beginning of this series. But in the beginning of this book, the scene between the Mastermind and Max Seigel had my heart pumping.


    Have you listened to any of Andre Braugher and Jay O. Sanders ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I am new to Audible.com, so this is my first time listen to Mr. Braugher and Mr. Sander's performances. I really enjoyed both and can't wait to listen to I, Alex Cross.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I have no idea.


    Any additional comments?

    Been a fan of Alex Cross since Kiss The Girls. Hope there will be more books in this series.
