About this deal

Patterson and publishers: The action and interplay among the characters is wonderful, yet I can no longer see past the concept.

Alex Cross is happy, but his happiness is threatened by a series of chilling murders—murders with a pattern so twisted, it leaves investigators reeling. It follows on directly from the cliff-hanger that ended Cross My Heart, so cannot really be read without reading that book first.I hope this is not a preview of oncoming books where you have to purchase an analysis to find out the outcome . C., is in a panic, and when a third body is discovered, rumours of three serial killers send the city into an all-out frenzy. Here is a chilling villain no reader will forget, a love story of great tenderness, and a plot of relentless suspense and heart-pounding pace. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. If the reader can suspend disbelief regards the place and manner the hostages are held, Cross’s post-crash climb, the extreme convenience of the former profession of Mulch’s accomplice and the current career of Gloria Jones, then some quite good investigation keeps the story rolling at a fast pace.

No one in Washington is safe-not children, not politicians, not even the President of the United States. Jezzie Flanagan is the first woman ever to hold the highly sensitive job as supervisor of the Secret Service in Washington. 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. I have not read many of the Alex Cross novels but James Patterson has such a fluidity to his writing that It did not feel like I was reading a book late in a series. Hachette Book Group is a leading book publisher based in New York and a division of Hachette Livre, the third-largest publisher in the world.If you liked the early Alex Cross series then don't miss reading this one it was way better than any of the first novels in this series. In this heart-stopping thriller, Detective Alex Cross and his beloved fiancé find themselves tangled in a complex murder investigation, threatening not only public safety, but their chance at happiness together. And since I've always been a critic of what I consider to be short-changing readers by filling up to 20% of the advertised number of pages with sample chapters from other books, I'll note that the pages devoted to previews are far fewer here.

The others are Violets Are Blue, Four Blind Mice, The Big Bad Wolf, London Bridges, so it’s safe to say that I’m a big fan of the series even if the more recent entries have been hit and miss in places. Mark this day on the calendar, folks: It's the first time in a while that I've given a James Patterson book 5 stars. His family, which are usually an integral part of the books, include: Nana Mama (his 90-something Grandmother who raised him); Damon (his eldest son, away at College); Jannie (his daughter, in high school); Ali (his youngest son (just starting school); Bree (his second wife, we don’t count Christine, who was his fiancé and Ali’s mother), John Samson (his best friend since they were 10, and a fellow police officer), and Ava, a young street person who they wanted to adopt. Cross follows the leads wherever they take him, tracing the killer's secret history into the back country and eventually down into the bayous of Louisiana. Alex Cross is simply superb, as always, and the pain he feels comes right through the pages of the book.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Alex Cross is a hero for our time, and never more so than in this story of family, action, and the deepest moral choices. Now members of Hollywood's A-list fear they're next on Mary's list, and the case grows by blockbuster proportions as the LAPD and FBI scramble to find a pattern before Mary can send one more chilling update. Alex's need for vengeance was placed on hold as he faced another huge challenge: raising his children without their mother.
