I don't get it.

I was very excited, a new story with one of my favorite characters but...is this supposed to be a complete novel, as advertised or a teaser? I don't want to give away the story so let me just say the ending is not an "ending". Also part 5, around chapter 20 is the beginning of a Womens Murder Club book and part 6 is the credits. Left me very confused.

Don't Spend Alot

Would you consider the audio edition of Cross Kill: A BookShot to be better than the print version?

The book is classic James Patterson Alex Cross - the story pace is good. Action. Thriller. However, it leaves you dangling. And you wonder - what happened???

Would you be willing to try another book from James Patterson? Why or why not?

I am a JP fan so of course I would try another. His books are pretty consistent - twists and turns and action.

What about Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s performance did you like?

His performance was ok.

Short Changed

A basic Alex Cross mystery storyline. It is a short story that gives you enough to want to read more. If the purpose of the bookshots are to allow a book to be read during a commute or while waiting on an appointment it missed it's shot. The book was good, but I felt there was too many open ends to just stop the book. It is like the author started writing and didn't know where to go with the next chapter so he stopped. I was disappointed and felt short changed.

VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

First of all if its a black character, it should sound like a black character!!!

What was most disappointing about James Patterson’s story?

No excitement

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Just didn't read the same (listen), and I've beng read all of them!

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

VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!

Any additional comments?

I so looked forward to this book and it was such a terrible let down.
I hope the book series "Michael Bennett" is a much better read (listen) to!

Great but format is frustrating

For those who love the Cross and Women's MurderClub books, breaking them up into cliffhanging sections is annoying. Write the whole book and sell it, Mr. Patterson.

Full price for a preview?

I listened to Cross Justice on Audible first. This BookShot was a preview for that book. What a waste of an Audible credit. I like the Alex Cross books, but don’t waste your time or money on this. I won’t be getting anymore “BookShot” for sure! And what’s with James Patterson books available on Audible, but not on Kindle? I really enjoy the books that I can listen to on Audible while I’m driving and then switch to reading and vice versa. This may very well be the last James Patterson book that I read/listen to.
