NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING TYLER PERRY

Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, DC, Police Department when an unknown shooter gunned down his wife, Maria, in front of him. Alex's need for vengeance was placed on hold as he faced another huge challenge-raising his children without their mother.

Years later Alex is making a bold move in his life. He has left the FBI and set up practice as a psychologist once again. His life with Nana Mama, Damon, Jannie, and little Alex finally feels like it's in order. He even has a chance at a new love.

Then Cross's former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. Now Cross must go on the hunt for the most cunning, psychotic killer he has ever faced...and it pushes him dangerously close to the breaking point.

Yes I am a younger reader ( a.k.a A teenager) when I first started reading this book I couldn't stop myself from diving right in. It is a very good book I think mature teens would love this book. The twists and turns in the book will keep you reading it til its last page. This is not the only James patterson book that will make you want to read more! He just comleted the Maximum ride series, and startinga new book cant wait to read more. I hope this comment will make you want to read more of these fascinating James Patterson books I know I will. And I also hope that if a adult is reading this comment that you think about what I am saying. Not all of us teens are inappropriate some are smart and mature enought to enjoy books that you yourself might like in an appropriate manner. Thats all I got to say, oh wait one last thing, READ THIS BOOK AND MORE CELERBRATE READING READ READ READ BYE!!!!

Good, fast, intense, quick moving plot that I wouldn't read through fast enough! I just wanted to keep turning pages to find out a little more about Alex's quest to catch the serial rapist and wife's killer! Needless to say I couldn't put the book down. Great cat and mouse characters, loved how two stories were told in one. Good twists and turns that kept me interested so that I wasn't trying to think ahead. I definitely recommend this book as a good, quick, lazy day read that will make the day fly by. Can't wait to read Double Cross! xoxo_leigh

I couldn't finish more than 50 pages of this one. Patterson used to make Alex and his family come to life, but he seems to have lost interest in all but the money he's making from continuing the series. I won't be reading any more of these.
