The president's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark.
A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced.
As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes - one that may alter the fate of the entire country.
Kill Alex Cross is faster, more exciting, and more tightly wound than any Alex Cross thriller James Patterson has ever written!

liked this one a lot. He is my favorite reader for Alex Cross. can't wait for the next book finishing this story.,
I had read all of the Alex Cross series to date. James Patterson writes suspenseful thrillers with touching love stories and family stories intertwined. He is magnificent!
Nana Mama is always my favorite character. Her love of family and her spunk reminds me of what families should be!
It was pretty good. Not as suspenseful as others I have read.
Andre - monotone
Zach - evil
I would recommend it. I read the unfavorable reviews...after I "read" it but I was surprised. My 1st. Patterson "read" &...I Liked it.
Not on the edge of my seat but close.
Of course an audio infliction brings the story alve.
Mayb 2 or 3.
I haven't read the print version. We had 4 adults going on a road trip and needed to have something that we could all enjoy.
There seemed to be a lot going on so that kept us all very interested.
It was very easy to distinguish between the individual characters. Which made it easier to follow what was going on.
No, I knew we would be listening to it in two sittings. It timed out pretty much perfectly.
It has been a long time since I listened to an audio book. The convenience of being able to download it to my iphone was a huge advantage from the old way of having either a cassette or a cd.
The different characters' voices.
The plot did keep me on the edge of my seat with the way the characters read the story.
The story of how the antagonist became evil.
A business professional with a voracious reading habit. My favorites are crime dramas and sci-fi/fantasy, but the occasional romance or history read is great too.
The story moves well through the investigation but it is a typical Cross novel. Not to say that is a bad thing, it has twists and turns mking you think. Well worth the time.
The narrators' inflection and tempo move the story along well. Some parts make you wonder but all in all good job.
Open in Blackberry Storm 2 without frustration. Very disappointed.
Story is not the problem. Had to resort to my PC to listen. The point was not needing the PC for my listening.
FIX BLACKBERRY STORM 2
Riveting, fast-paced, Great
Love the Alex Cross storys, feel like I know him and his family and friends like my own
all of them
Another sleeze bag bites the dust!
Yes, its a good listen. The story line is interesting and contemporary. The charachters are reasonably well developed. Multiple sub-plots are kept alive and viable. Overall, a good book..
Development of the terrorism aspects seemed more interesting than the kidnapping line and the Cross family dynamics. The least interesting was the interaction between Cross and his spouse.
The development of very believable characters.
Yes, and I managed to do so thru a lengthy drive. It was relatively short when compared to other unabridged works of fiction by Patterson and his contemporaries.
