Publisher's Summary

Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and a scheming lobbyist. Next, the elusive marksman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories - is the marksman a hero or a vigilante?

The case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction. As Alex struggles with the sniper, Siegel, and the wedding, he receives a call from his deadliest adversary, Kyle Craig. The Mastermind is in D.C. and will not relent until he has eliminated Cross--and his family - for good. With a supercharged blend of suspense, action, and deception, Cross Fire is James Patterson's most exciting Alex Cross novel ever.

Solve another case with Alex Cross.

Not the same old Alex Cross

I have to agree with Sam to a certain extent, having Andre Braugher narrate make me feel like I'm in the middle of an episode of Homicide: Life on the Streets. I'm not sure what the reason is for changing narrators and hopefully this is not a permanent change, if so I may have to actually read any new Alex Cross books. The story was very enjoyable and left me wanting more. I have always enjoyed this series and cannot wait until the next one, hopefully I'll listen to it.

Another good Cross novel

I have to disagree with previous reviewers who didn't like Andre Braugher's narration. I thought he did a great job as the voice of Alex Cross. I didn't get the feeling he was rushing through the reading-just reading at a reasonable pace. He wasn't an overly dramatic reader, which I found quite refreshing. The story wasn't quite as gripping as some Cross novels but still had it's tense moments and moved us along in the tale of Alex Cross's life.

Should have read hard copy.

As a James Patterson/Alex Cross fan, this book does not disappoint. While the content was great, the narration leaves a lot to be desired. I will read the next Alex Cross book but if the narrators are the same, I will most likely buy the hard copy.

Patterson is back!

This book was great. It kept us enthralled to the end.

The narration was excellent. I loved the separation of the characters voices, they enhanced the story.
