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.

“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)
I love the story how it was put together buy mystery to another mystery to be solved in each case on his own personal ground, the type of motivation that keeps the reader mind on the story.
a very bored person wit too much time on his hands
no.he seems to chose poor narrators and the "he said, I said, they said" ruins concentration.
these guys were way too animated and mechanical. Thespians, they are not.
Mc/carty, Rummel, Daniels . Hill, Roberts, Brick
the villain was interesting
following every quotation was a "he said" or "I said" totally unnessary if a talented narrator was reading.
I have read every book in this series and can honestly say I was worried something like this would someday happen.Don't want to ruin it for anyone so I will just say "bring on the next one." Quickly please!!!
I love Patterson, and will continue to read his books.
The ending, although I'm not to happy about what is going on in Cross' life, I guess we all knew deep down that sooner or later something along these lines were going to happen.
They are great readers
Possibly. After reading Hope to Die as long as it's made into one movie.
Just like in the movies, some 2-parters just end. Which is very frustrating but also understanding. Although I'm not happy about the ending, I also understand. I appreciate the fact that Patterson took the time to go into extreme detail and make this a 2 parter... but a little warning would have been nice. I'm glad I didn't read Cross My Heart until the Friday before Hope To Die came out because I didn't have to wait to long to see what had happened. But I was on the edge of my seat while travelling across country listening to this book.
It was a great story with many twists that kept me interested. I found I had listen on lunch, while walking from the office to my car and every other chance I got. I can't wait to hear the sequel.
It should have been identified as the first part of a series, not as a complete book!
Yes. This volume was incomplete.
Alex Cross is JP best works
Alex Cross.The whole family is great
James Patterson please don't mess this up
Absolutely, this story has many twists that kept me listening all day!
Patterson makes Cross come alive. Not just a character, but a man with feelings - I empathized with Alex; felt his sincere anguish! Forgot this was just a story.
Love Nana Mama who can treat the big man, Alex, like a child and get away with it.
Gut wrenching scene when Alex realized his family is gone.
Thanks, James Patterson, I can't wait for the next book!!!
As far as Patterson books go, the ending is kind of weak. I think he wanted to turn Alex Cross into Jack Bauer but then he changed his mind at the last minute. There is yet more to be told on this story and he has developed a great antagonist...
