The President's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark.
A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced.
As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes--one that may alter the fate of the entire country. KILL ALEX CROSS is faster, more exciting, and more tightly wound than any Alex Cross thriller James Patterson has ever written!
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
James Patterson’s dogged detective Alex Cross faces a war on two fronts. Someone kidnaps the U.S. president’s children at the same time that an Islamic terrorist cell begins a jihadi war in Washington, DC. Actor Andre Braugher—best known for playing no-nonsense authority figures in Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Homicide—lends his formidable gravitas to Cross, while veteran bad-guy character actor Zach Grenier (24) fleshes out the villainous side of the story. Musical flourishes and sound effects give this dovetailing thriller a cinematic feel as it builds toward its startling conclusion.
