What a treat! ORDER SEQUENCE note at bottom....beware

Nice short “fix” of Alex Cross. HOWEVER, I believe the ORDER sequence is wrong. The order sequence I had listed the book shot “Cross Kill” BEFORE “Cross the line” and this one AFTER. Cross Kill did not make sense to me until AFTER Cross the Line. So, reader beware....read:
Cross the Line
*Cross Kill
*Detective Cross then
The People vs. Alex Cross

While they are all good, it will make MUCH more sense. Enjoy!

Cross just keeps it going

This was less than three hours, not sure if it was abridged or just how it was, but I enjoyed it. All action, good plot, hit home with how poorly vets are treated in this country. First of this short version listen I had experienced. I like Alex Cross though. I wish I could find same narrator for the Cross Justice one. That was my first Cross novel, just liked how he kept me intrigued.

from a vet

thank you for writing about that issue. it still needs more attention for the veterans. especially when the law enforcement agencies get involved with a stressed out vet. more training for them like a psychological courses.
