Wedding bells ring
Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and an underhanded lobbyist. Next, the elusive gunman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories--is the marksman a hero or a vigilante?
A murderer returns
The case explodes, and the FBI assigns agent Max Siegel to the investigation. As Alex and Siegel battle over jurisdiction, the murders continue. It becomes clear that they are the work of a professional who has detailed knowledge of his victims' movements--information that only a Washington insider could possess.
Caught in a lethal cross fire
As Alex contends with the sniper, Siegel, and the wedding, he receives a call from his deadliest adversary, Kyle Craig. The Mastermind is in D.C. and will not relent until he has eliminated Cross and his family for good. With a supercharged blend of action, deception, and suspense, Cross Fire is James Patterson's most visceral and exciting Alex Cross novel ever.

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
The prolific Patterson and two fine narrators score a bull's-eye with this 17th Alex Cross adventure. Finally, Alex is going to marry Bree, but the wedding is delayed when snipers begin picking off high-profile characters in Washington. While Cross is jousting with FBI agent Max Siegle, his archenemy Kyle Craig has escaped again and is close at hand. The production is first-rate, and the musical background is perfectly placed for emphasis. Praise is due to Jay O. Sanders for his clear, crisp narration and to Andre Braugher for his accents and believable characterizations. Best of all, Patterson's ending suggests possible new beginnings--maybe even a crossover with another of his favorite characters. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
