Publisher's Summary

Winner, 2017 APA Audie Awards - Thriller/Suspense

The toughest cases are the ones that hit close to home.

When his cousin is accused of a heinous 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 everyone seems to be on the take, 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 that has local cops scratching their heads and needing his help: a grisly string of socialite murders. Now he's hot on the trail of both a brutal killer and the truth about his own past - and the answers he finds might be fatal.

Possibly the best one yet!!

I have loved Alex Cross since the very first book, and this one is no exception... When Cross goes “home” again after many years because a cousin is on trial for the heinous murder of a child, not only does he wind up solving the crime and finding the real killer, but he also finds himself. There are many twists in this tale, and the very last one made me cry. Excellent read!! 5+ stars.

Suspenseful

This book kept you on your toes. You could not even predict the end no matter how well you follow it. It was a twister of a roller coaster ride.

No way to improve on this book

Rarely does a book come along that keeps the momentum for the reader on high throughout the book from beginning to end, but this one does. It is fabulous! book that allows for mystery to meet mystery again & again. And the narration is great too. It has something for everyone to enjoy, ponder over, guess & then guess agin & still the end will still blow the mind. Bravo James Patterson, Bravo

Worst Mismatch Between Character & Narrator

Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Ruben Santiago-Hudson?

Absolutely, I would read another James Patterson Book. I guess there was a shortage of available reader to put Ruben's voice as Alex Cross. A true mismatch.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

As a narrator I'm sure Rubin is fine, sadly he was not the right match for this character.

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

It sparked a request for a refund shortly after I started listening. What a disappointment.

Just awesome

Still I believe if you Morgan Freeman as narrator it would be so much more inticing.
