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!
There's one thing listeners can be sure Patterson will not do in this audio edition of the latest installment in the Alex Cross series, and that is kill Alex Cross. This time around, the famous detective finds himself investigating the kidnapping of the president's children and several terrorist attacks in Washington, D.C. Andre Braugher who smoothly reads sections of the book narrated by Cross captures the tough, often frustrated, at times furious lawman, but also portrays Cross's warmer side as he deals with domestic problems involving his children, a streetwise waif, and his cantankerous aunt. Zach Grenier who reads portions of the book not narrated by Cross deftly renders a husband and wife terrorist team, while creating a variety of foreign accents. But his major achievement is his interpretation of the psychotic kidnapper whose oral dairy of the abduction and its aftermath is bone-chillingly creepy. A Little, Brown hardcover.
First book of the series I have read can't say It did not hook me.
If you are an Alex Cross fan you will love this book!!
Kill Alex Cross
Kill Alex Cross ended with one of my favorite detectives still very much alive, but this book killed him for me.
The plot must have been designed by a committee using "cut and paste" to string together enough words to make the Christmas book market. What a waste of my time and money!
