APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In his 21st Alex Cross novel, thriller king James Patterson pits his DC police detective against a psychotic nihilist with two goals: to destroy Cross and commit the perfect crime. And by targeting Cross’s family, this sociopath aims to murder two birds with one stone. As always, Patterson’s hard-boiled prose keeps the tension up, but he also throws in plenty to ponder regarding the ongoing battle between human nature and morality. Cross My Heart is a classic thriller with a modern twist, incorporating contemporary TV references and virtual reality.

Cross my heart
Hate when you don't know up front that it's a 2
Book set.. At least have the second book ready.
Where's the ending?
I would not bother reading this until part 2 comes out. With very little warning you are left hanging. While I'm sure it's lucrative for the author and publisher to do things this way I'm not sure that I will ever bother reading another of his books as it shows little respect for the reader.
Where's the Ending?!!!!
I'm a big James Patterson fan, have read most of his books. This book is another stay-up-all-night page-turner, but the ending is HORRIBLE! Almost non-existent. It's basically "to be continued." And the next book isn't even released yet. I paid good money for this book, and I feel cheated that there was no ending!
