The #1 bestselling novel that inspired the major new motion picture Alex Cross starring Tyler Perry.
Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, DC, Police Department when an unknown shooter gunned down his wife, Maria, in front of him. The killer was never found, and the case turned cold, filed among the unsolved drive-bys in D.C.'s rough neighborhoods.
Years later, still haunted by his wife's death, Cross is making a bold move in his life. Now a free agent from the police and the FBI, he's set up practice as a psychologist once again. His life with Nana Mama, Damon, Jannie, and little Alex is finally getting in order. He even has a chance at a new love.
Then Cross's former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. He is tracking a serial rapist in Georgetown, one whose brutal modus operandi recalls a case Sampson and Cross worked together years earlier. When the case reveals a connection to Maria's death, Cross latches on for the most urgent and terrifying ride of his life.
From the man USA TODAY has called the "master of the genre," CROSS is the high-velocity thriller James Patterson and Alex Cross's fans have waited years to read - and the pinnacle of the bestselling detective series of the past two decades.
This novel was originally published under the title Cross. The movie tie-in editions are published under the title Alex Cross.
Best book ever
It is the Best book ever simply it is perfectly written. No more to be said.
Unnecessarily long, but a treat nonetheless
There are moments when I want to skip and read ahead. That's either a sign that I am impatient or the novel is unnecessarily long. Who doesn't love the complex, intelligent and delightable Alex Cross? It's a character that keeps me safe, someone I love and that's what makes it a good read. Not to mentioned that the villain lives up to his chaotic nature and at times, you feel sorry for him but despise him at the same time for his brutal ways. Good character development, excellent action sequences and a realism that keeps you wanting more....More
