Publisher's Summary

James Patterson raises the stakes to their highest level, ever - when Alex Cross becomes the obsession of a genius of menace set on proving that he is the greatest mind in the history of crime.

Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart - nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife, Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

When the ones Cross loves are in danger, he will do anything to protect them. If he does anything to protect them, they will die.

What the Critics Say

“Michael Boatman gives a first-rate narration in this latest installment in the Alex Cross series. A second narrator, Tom Wopat, artfully portrays the homicidal maniac who plans to destroy Alex by destroying his family. Boatman captures the tension in the plot and keeps the listener engaged with the action. His portrayal of a bereaved Alex Cross--voice trembling with despair--will have listeners spellbound. And his total command of the story is like a zip line to Alex's hell. Though the symphony of terror isn't over at the conclusion of the audiobook, fans of Michael Boatman will revel in his delivery of this captivating thriller.” (AudioFile)

"[Patterson's] books don't pussyfoot around when it comes to the villains. These are bad, bad people... [I, Alex Cross] is political, with a lot of intrigue in high places." (Al Roker, The Today Show)

    Story
    "Love Alex Cross. So much trauma! Must be fiction!"

    Through the years Alex Cross has become watered down.. Must happen when an author (editor, publisher) tries to keep a character going, and going, and going.. I still enjoy the stories but not with the gusto of the past. The only author I know who has been able to stay strong over a long time is James Lee Burke, but then he is a thinking man like Koontz. So they have more to say than just a 300 page "story"

    "Half a book at full book price"

    This is one half of a complete book -- The family is kidnapped, Alex is injured -- oh my, now let's spend $20 to find out what happens... What a rip off... A complete con to spend more $$. JP should be ashamed...

    Story
    "I know Alex Cross is amazing but come on"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I am so in love with Alex Cross I don't know why I am complaining. He does not have super powers so I just need some of the stuff he goes through to just be a little more realistic.


    Did Cross My Heart inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I love the books...I love - love the fast pace but this one was just a bit much. How much can one person go through and be ok. This one just way to over the top but I gave the 3 stars because I know I will either order the print book or donwload the next audio book.

    I don't appreciate having to purchase another Patterson novel to finish the story. This will be my last Patterson.

    Story
    "Cross My Heart"

    This was my first listen to a James Patterson Novel. I loved it. The story line and the change in voices of the narrators kept me engaged and attentive throughout the book. The plot was intriguing. Patterson's take on stalkers and serial killers kept me interested throughout.
