Publisher's Summary

Alex Cross’s son Ali is an accomplished mystery-solver and number-one best-selling author. A crime at a concert near his school sparks his newest investigation, and it gets dangerous fast. Sometimes it’s good to have a father in the detective business. 

Ali Cross just solved his first real case. Alex Cross knows it's only a matter of time before his son finds his way into more trouble. Neither of them expected Ali to get caught up in another case so quickly. Ali and his friends were just hanging out in Anacostia Park...then they became witnesses to a crime. Alex wants Ali to stay far away from the investigation. But Ali isn't going anywhere, not when his new friend Zoe is in trouble. It's up to Ali to figure out why she's lying to the police - and who she's protecting. This is Ali's toughest case yet. As long as he trusts his Cross instincts, he may just have a shot at solving it....

A well written book that held my attention from page one to the finish

I am read the first two of what I am hoping to be a much longer series by this author. James Peterson has been one of my favorites for a long while but I must admit that I had som concerns over a series whose main character is a teen age son of a police officer. I read the first book based on a friend’s recommendation, although I didn’t think it would hold my interest. I am happy to say that I was terribly wrong and couldn’t wait for more as I got involved in this, the second book of Ali Cross’s entry into the work of a policeman, comparing his efforts to what he knew of his detective father’s work.
This book is a quick read but with sufficient complexity to hold an adult reader’s attention throughout from cover to cover.
I do recommend this work and suggest that you begin with the first book for greatest rewards.
Thanks Mr Patterson for providing a delightful change of pace.

Waste of time

Sounds like the story of a self important preteen who follows his own rules and lies to his family whenever he sees fit. The family endorses this action.
The narrator makes Ali sound as if he’s barely out of baby talk.
It seems as if James Patterson has writers block, or maybe he’s lost his creativity. I miss his original writing.
This is my last attempt at reading a "Ali Cross" book.

Don’t waste your time

Written for a thirteen year old. Love Alex Cross books but this one is for pre teens. Lame story, I’ll never get this time back.

Dull

I think it's time to give the Cross family a break. This sounds more like a rehash of the Alex Cross books lumped into Ali Cross. Same family issues, same prose, nothing new here. Very disappointed. The title "Like Father Like Son" is very appropriate. Give us something different.

Great story. Audio has issues

While the performance by the voice artists was excellent, I found it annoying that some of the consenants were dropped.

Noisemaker

Great eread!! Creating a platform for the struggle of what is happening in our children's schools and allowing them to create a solution is inspiring. The plight of the homeless population and the reminder that we all need to be mindful and respectful to all people because we never know what the future may hold.
