Editorial Reviews

Review

"Alex Cross remains James Patterson's signature character, a man who virtually owns the phrase 'high octane' and this outing is no exception." -- Michael Conaghan Belfast Telegraph

Review

READERS LOVE CROSS FIRE!

"The Cross family will never be the same! Cross Fire will leave you turning page after page with endless suspense." (Beyond the Bookshelf )

"In true Patterson fashion, the story includes every element a good cop tale needs: shootouts, car chases, mysterious characters, and bad guys galore." (John M. Wills, author, former Chicago Police Officer, and retired FBI Agent )

"Lives are lost, people Alex loves are in serious danger, and everyone is afraid that they're going to be next on the sniper's list. This is another great and addicting tale of murder and mayhem--Alex Cross style! I was hard pressed to put it down!" (Bibliophilic Book Blog )

The only book series I have ever followed continually has been author, James Patterson's, "Alex Cross" novels. From the moment I picked up my 1995 paperback, "Kiss the Girls", Alex Cross has been my all time favorite hero. I have read every single "Alex Cross", novel, that I have actually grown up with his family and feel like part of them. I am glad Nana Mama, is still around, watched him lose the love of his life, seen Janelle and Damon, grow up to be excellent teens, watched little Alex, be dropped off, then ripped away by his mother again from their lives, absolutely love his new wife Bree, and their new additon to the family, Ava...........

What draws me constantly back, is that Alex Cross, homicide detective, ex FBI Profiler, and highly trained psychologist, through out all of his novels, the author portrays his character as a grounded, humble everyday family man, that lives a normal life as possible. He thinks calmly before he reacts, has respect for the dead, and always gets the killers............. But this time he is up against two very, evil, psychotic, killers that will give him no time to breathe.............

Meet Elijah Creem, highly sought out, plastic surgeon, who has a sick, perverted taste for young girls. Once arrested, his life the way he has known it will never be the same and he is out for revenge. Now he has recruited a demented partner, Joshua, that joins him to play out his sick, deadly, killing game......

Dead bodies start dropping all over Washington. For the very first time in his career, Alex won't be able to think, as he races from one murder site to another. Will Alex and partner Sampson be able to solve the puzzle and catch these serial killers in time......

On top of everything else, someone is watching.

Hmm, I like James Patterson but his last books have been a let down. I think he should stop writting so many books and concentrate a bit more on some good once. The story is not bad but not to the level that I am used from him.
