Publisher's Summary

Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and a scheming lobbyist. 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. With a supercharged blend of suspense, action, and deception, Cross Fire is James Patterson's most exciting Alex Cross novel ever.

Solve another case with Alex Cross.

    "Enjoyable -- easy listen"

    I enjoyed the narrator, and my first listen to an Alex Cross book -- although I may have read one or two awhile back. I agree with the others that bring up some concerns about the story -- characters and scenes that seem to have no point. The ending wasn't high on consistency -- how could our expert villain walk into such an easy take down by Cross.

    Given those problems, the book was fun, entertaining, easy to follow, and one I wanted to finish . . . quickly. Maybe another reviewer can provide best choices for Alex Cross books so I can try another.

    "Good book"

    I thought this was a good book. Very short though. I didn't like the new reader for Alex Cross as much as the old one but I enjoyed it a lot.

    "okay"

    I enjoy listening to the Alex Cross books. Have heard them all. I was also disappointed with the new narrator. It felt like he was rushing it. And the book wasn't that long I couldn't figure out why.

    By the very end I was used to him but the narration was definitely worse than in previous books. The book was ok. I don't expect too much from Patterson books anymore as he churns them out so quickly. But quick entertainment is what I expected and what I got.

    "Typical Alex Cross"

    I enjoyed the latest Alex Cross book Cross Fire. Was concerned to discover a new reader in Andre Braugher but he did not disappoint. It's going to take a little while to totally get used to him but he did fine. Glad that there's some closure to Alex's hunt for one of his nemesis. Don't want to give anything away but I was happy at the end. Looking forward to the next chapter in the life of Alex and family.

    "Cross Fire by James Patterson"

    He's back!!!! I have enjoyed each and every one of the Alex Cross series. It was refreshing not to have a co author writing under Patterson's name. Well worth a listen.

    "Great!! Really enjoyed!"

    This is the typical ride you get in a Cross novel. I don't understand the negative feedback about the narration, I enjoyed Andre and didn't have any trouble with him as Cross. If you are a Cross fan this is a great, quick read.

    "Not the same old Alex Cross"

    I have to agree with Sam to a certain extent, having Andre Braugher narrate make me feel like I'm in the middle of an episode of Homicide: Life on the Streets. I'm not sure what the reason is for changing narrators and hopefully this is not a permanent change, if so I may have to actually read any new Alex Cross books. The story was very enjoyable and left me wanting more. I have always enjoyed this series and cannot wait until the next one, hopefully I'll listen to it.

    "Another good Cross novel"

    I have to disagree with previous reviewers who didn't like Andre Braugher's narration. I thought he did a great job as the voice of Alex Cross. I didn't get the feeling he was rushing through the reading-just reading at a reasonable pace. He wasn't an overly dramatic reader, which I found quite refreshing. The story wasn't quite as gripping as some Cross novels but still had it's tense moments and moved us along in the tale of Alex Cross's life.

    "Should have read hard copy."

    As a James Patterson/Alex Cross fan, this book does not disappoint. While the content was great, the narration leaves a lot to be desired. I will read the next Alex Cross book but if the narrators are the same, I will most likely buy the hard copy.
