Publisher's Summary

When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man--the African warlord known as the Tiger. Just when the detectives think they're closing in on the elusive murderer, the Tiger disappears into thin air. Tracking him to Africa, Alex knows that he must follow. Alone.

    "Rather Long"

    I found this book rather long as it would never end. It grips you at the beginning but then you start to lose interest as the book goes on. I do not know if was the narrator or the cheesy music that was played in the background but it took alot for me to finish listening to it. I hope this is not representative of his other audio books!

    "NOT the Alex Cross I've loved :("

    The story line was unbelievable, the manufactured drama of music and sound affects distracting and annoying and too preachy. I'm sorry, but I've listened to all of his books up until now and Cross Country has made me leery of buying any more.

    "Alex Cross?"

    to call this a Alex Cross novel was wrong, it was a attempt to sell a book by adding a known figure. the books are getting shorter and farther from the core.

    "Jumped the shark."

    Not up to Pattersons standard, it is almost as if there was a ghost writer for this one. Same characters but the situations Dr. Cross finds himself are out of left field.

    "absolutely ridiculous"

    while I applaud some of the intent - exposing horros in Darfur etc. The story went beyond implausible to annoyingly implausible.

    "Cross Country"

    This is the first James Patterson book I've listened to and was dissappointed. I thought the writing was sophomoric, full of cliches, and for some annoying reason it was broken up into about 140 chapters which made no sense at all. You could guess what was going to happen next around every turn. I get the impression he turns out these best-sellers as a money making machine with no regard for literary quality.

    "Too impossible, even for Patterson"

    Excellent Patterson tension, but so impossible, implausible, and stupid plotline, that I wondered why I kept reading it.

    I did finish it and wondered if Cross was really as dumb as he appeared to be or was it Patterson playing with us? Had to agree with the Tiger....The hero had no reason to go to Nigeria.

    "Cross takes a dive"

    As much as I enjoy the Dr. Cross series, I have to say this book did not live up to expectations. I mean - good grief, why would the author take a seemingly intelligent character and dumb him down? Cross has no knowledge of or authority in Nigeria, but travels there unprepared and acts indignant when he receives no cooperation. Duh! Then there is the continual "beating up" of Dr. Cross which is really tiresome. Not the author's best work.
