Publisher's Summary

Just when Alex Cross thought his life was calming down into a routine of patients and therapy sessions, he finds himself back in the game - this time to catch a criminal mastermind like no other. A spate of elaborate murders in Washington, D.C., have the whole East Coast on edge. They are like nothing Alex and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever seen. With each murder, the case becomes increasingly complex.

There's only one thing Alex knows: the killer adores an audience. As victims are made into gruesome spectacles citywide, inducing a media hysteria, it becomes clear to Alex that the man he's after is a genius of terror - and he's after fame. The killer has the whole city by its strings. And he'll stop at nothing to become the most terrifying star that Washington, D.C., has ever seen.

Solve another case with Alex Cross.

    "disappointing"

    I read my first James Patterson book in print not too long ago and looked up the next one in the cross installment and purchase it on audio. I was very disappointed in the storyline. I felt like the sexualisation was juvenile and unnecessary to telling the story I thought the eerie music throughout the reading of the book with missed placed an unnecessary as well

    "First and Last Patterson"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Peter J. Fernandez and Michael Stuhlbarg ?

    No


    What was most disappointing about James Patterson’s story?

    Predictable


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first and last James Patterson book. The story and plot was predictable. It reminded me of a lame, made for TV movie. The narration was okay but the "mood" music at pivotal passages was annoying and distracted to the read. The "mood" music used at the romantic passages sounded like a adult movie. Very bad taste.

    "Typical Alex Cross story"

    Double Cross was interesting and had a well developed study line. I can't really say that it was intense although parts were. It had a satisfying ending. I felt like it was worth the read.

    "Love it!"

    I listen to these books while I run and they never disappoint. I lose track of my pace and time because I get so wrapped up in the book. Love it!

    "Awful narration"
    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book as an experiment - I wanted to see if I liked J. Patterson's writing. Turns out I'm not a huge fan, and the narration just spoiled whatever good stuff was left. Awful.. sorry... would NOT recommend. I suspect actually reading the book would be MUCH better.
    Want a good narrator? try Dick Hill, or Steven Weber.

    What would have made Double Cross better?

    The story was slow and flat

    I love Patterson.


    Any additional comments?

    "Terrible, terrible narrator"

    Terrible narrator for Alex Cross. Absolutely ruined the book. I suffered through it only because it was such a short book. He sounded like he was reading a children's story. Even worse as the female character. The second narrator was very good. I was relieved when the killer was speaking so that I could get a break from the Cross narrator.

    Story
    "It Doesn't Disapoint"
    What did you like best about Double Cross? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the story line. Unfortunately the more Cross books I read the less I like Alex Cross. I do however like the story lines as they pertain to the crimes and so I am in the process of listening to all of them.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Again, I really don't care for the character of Alex Cross. I love hearing about the villains and their perspectives. Alex Cross is a good crime fighter but not much more beyond that. I can't understand how he gets such great women like Bri Stone to care about him when he is so unappealing as a partner.


    Which character – as performed by Peter J. Fernandez and Michael Stuhlbarg – was your favorite?

    Both Mr. Fernandez and Mr. Stuhlbarg are excellent story tellers. I enjoy all the characters they give life to.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Despite finding Alex Cross annoying as a man, grandson and expecially a father I really enjoy the stories and "mysteries' and will continue to listen to the series.

    "Better than expected"

    I really enjoyed this Cross book. The storytellers were better and easier to distinguish between. I really enjoyd the plot and also meeting 'old friends' again. I thought the play between Alex and Brianna was really good and I enjoyed that she was portraied as a strong able woman. This plot was better than I had expected and I loved the twists and turns. It keeps you in suspence and makes you want to listen more. This book was a 'sit-down and listen' kind of book. You had to concentrate to get all the nuances, but at the same time I let it rest for about 2 weeks and then picked up right where I left off without hesitation. It was great.

    The storytellers are really good. I especially enjoy the combination of Fernandez and Stuhlbard, better than Fernandez and Jay. I will be looking out for this combination of storytellers as they made the story come alive, one could feel that one was IN the story not just listening to it.

    If you have not read any of the other Cross books then do NOT start with this one, it has references to earlier books which if you do not know these books then you will miss out on a lot of the story. For the rest of you highly recommended listening :-)

    ENJOY!
