Publisher's Summary

Alex Cross is going home. But what will he find when he gets there?

When his cousin is accused of an unthinkable crime, Alex Cross returns to his North Carolina hometown for the first time in over three decades. As he tries to prove his cousin's innocence in a town where justice is hard to find, Cross unearths a family secret that forces him to question everything he's ever known.

Chasing a ghost he believed was long dead, Cross gets pulled into a case involving a string of murders.

Now he's hot on the trail of both a cold-hearted killer and the truth about his own past - and the answers he finds could be fatal.

Kept me on the edge!

2nd audio book from the Alex Cross series and it just kept getting better! The narration was nothing sort of amazing and it was like I was reading the book itself!

what utter rubbish!

I hadn't read a James Patterson book in years. I used to love the Alex Cross series but this was pure garbage. Like a redit bad C tv movie. what has happened to this author? it's like reading a yukky Danielle Steele novel. ad nauseum. awful. don't waste your time.

Something different

This was another great book from James Patterson. It was a bit different from the usual as the story involved his family going back to his hometown and discovering about his past. I felt it was a bit more involved and interesting than his usual novels and the loose ends all tied up at the finale. Great narration. Recommend.

Justice is served

It has been a while but well worth the wait. A very enjoyable way to pass the past week on.my liesurly moments. Just enough time within the story given to each line of investigation to keep up interest with the crossing of lines between each.
A nice change of scenery with inclusion of the wider family to give much more insight into just what makes Alex Cross.
The ending became apparent to me quite a while before the end but he still managed to throw in a twist to complete the story.
A thoroughly enjoyabe listen and excellent narration.

Beware can cause insomnia!

What made the experience of listening to Cross Justice the most enjoyable?

Society murders in Florida, a story telling grandfather , what gave these to do with Alex Cross and his family. Little by little the threads are woven together to form a really thrilling pattern.

What did you like best about this story?

If I told you it would give the plot away, besides the whole story was so good it would be difficult to choose a favourite part.

Have you listened to any of Jefferson Mays and Ruben Santiago Hudson ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This was my first, found it hard to " see" Alex in the voice, however I became so engrossed in the tale I soon forgot my irritation.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Tension, suspense, thrill a minute, it's all here.

Any additional comments?

James Patterson turns out book after book, I buy faithfully but always with the thought it can't live up to the last one, but it does. Long nay they continue.

Another great book!

Where does Cross Justice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among my top 20' I listen to hundreds of books a year so that's pretty high.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nana she's always so grounded and comes out with some cracking observations. She also provides a good balance in the book.

What about Jefferson Mays and Ruben Santiago Hudson ’s performance did you like?

I liked the change in voices. The menace in the bad voices was great too.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Another non stop story of family skeletons and the will to succeed when everything is stacked against you.

Boring

I have read all the Alex Cross stories, which I must say have been really good, but this one is very disappointing .
Story line is very poor almost as if Patterson is struggling for ideas .

Worst James Patterson book ever

Bitterly disappointed with this book. I found it very boring and was just waiting for it to pick up, which it never did. I've read and listened to around 15 of his books and this one was awful. I suppose everyone has bad days and this was one of them for Patterson. I recommend you by pass this book.
