Publisher's Summary

Alex Cross’s whole world is crashing down around him. He has been hunted, stalked like prey, his predator priming himself for the kill. Cross has devoted his life to protecting others. Now he’s unable to protect even those closest to him. As a police detective, he has made many enemies, but never like this. Everything he loves is being taken from him. Soon he will have nothing and no one left.

Do not buy this book until part 2 is published

What disappointed you about Cross My Heart?

I love James Patterson books, but at no point does Audible, the publisher or Patterson warn you that this is only the first part of the story. Unless you want to spend 10 hours of your life, as I did, listening to a story that doesn't finish, do not buy this book at least until its sequel is published.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It's a good story, with good characterisation (the criminal is particularly intriguing), written in the rather banal Patterson style, but for the beach or a long journey it's good company. I just wish it had finished!

Which character – as performed by Michael Boatman and Tom Wopat – was your favourite?

The multi-named criminal...

Die hard Airport Fiction fans only

What disappointed you about Cross My Heart?

Absurd plot contrivances, unbelievable characters, clumsy spoon-feeding of references and lack of literary technique like metaphor and simile.

Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson again?

Only as part some kind of academic study.

What didn’t you like about Michael Boatman and Tom Wopat ’s performance?

Maudlin, indulgent and melodramatic. <br/><br/>Also the mis-pronunciation of espresso (eXpresso) unforgivable.

What character would you cut from Cross My Heart?

The 'nemesis' Thierry Mulch. The least believable character I've ever come across, Mulch is supposed to be the disguise of the criminal mastermind Marcus Sunday. This criminal mastermind sends notes to Alex Cross for no apparent reason other than to give him a gigantic clue and help James Patterson move the story forward. He then comes to give a talk at Cross' sons' school, again for no plausible reason at all. On top of this he appears to dress as some kind of Colonel Sanders-esque clown, again for no reason whatsoever.

Any additional comments?

Random inconsistent sound effects and 'dramatic' music have been added to the audiobook, like a radio play for children.

Has Cross My Heart put you off other books in this genre?

No I have read all of the Alex cross but this one is not worth the time so tedious

Any additional comments?

This book really is so boring not up to the usual AlexCross you keep thinking it may get better but after a while I just gave up it was like pulling teeth sorry but not good at all i would like a refund on this one

Amazing!!

If you could sum up Cross My Heart in three words, what would they be?

One of the very best Cross books since Kiss the Girls-a riveting, excellent read

What did you like best about this story?

The unbelievable and shocking events at the end! Just glad I read it now and only have to wait a few months for the next book!!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The end shocker.......also the part when Sampson pretended he didn't know anything was up-despite the fact Alex was secretly handing him evidence! Brilliant

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

See above

Any additional comments?

Such a clever storyline......I suspect the next book will reveal that all is ok-how good would it be if the events turned out to be true-as Alex first thought.....and as a consequence he turned against the law and became a vigil anti that was being chased by the police?!
