It's Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross has been called out to catch someone who's robbing his church's poor box. That mission behind him, Alex returns home to celebrate with Bree, Nana, and his children. The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again - a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family. Alex risks everything - and he may not make it back alive on this most sacred of family days.
Alex Cross is a hero for our time, and never more so than in this story of family, action, and the deepest moral choices. Merry Christmas, Alex Cross will be a holiday classic for years to come.

Reader did a very good job of presenting the book. Story followed well as well. Worth listening to.
The gun fight outside of the train station.
Tell us about yourself! I am a 69 yr old female. I love books but due to vision limits I now actually don't read much unless I can get large print. I enjoy books that give me a good story line and move forward at a good pace.
love all the Alex Cross books, they are fast pace.
It keeps your attention so you don't want to stop listening.
Good voice compelling.
Just keep them coming. Patterson is a great author
The twists and turns
A good thriller always has twists and turns so this is similar to many great thrillers.
When they were in the mall trying to figure out what was going on
yes but listed to it over a few weeks
Yes I would to pick up on anything I may have missed
Yes I have. This one did not disappoint it was on the same plane as all of the Alex Cross books! Love them
Author, rabid Audible listener.
Alex Cross has a lot on his plate in this latest outing. You will find him dealing with a mad man, then another re-occurring character who has some very nasty plans with the people of Washington DC.
What to say? I really enjoyed this book. Since the second book is already out as I write this, be aware this is a 'to be continued' storyline.
Youngsters may like it more than I did. Just not that challenging, but it was entertaining though.
Yeah, it was OK. Entertaining enough, somewhat predictable though.
The narration was great, as usual in all ways.
It sparks family emotions, mainly.
Don't have time for print version, so I don't know
No, not really. There was nothing unexpected in this one. Would like to see something totally outside the box.
Didn't have a favorite.
It was okay until the ending. I have enjoyed all of the other Cross books
Definitely made a stronger ending
Yes , I love Alex character and the plot very close to reality and human story ,easy listening book.
