For Alex Cross, the toughest cases hit close to home-and in this deadly thrill ride, he's trying to solve the most personal mystery of his life.

When his cousin is accused of a heinous crime, Alex Cross returns to his North Carolina hometown for the first time in over three decades. As he tries to prove his cousin's innocence in a town where everyone seems to be on the take, Cross unearths a family secret that forces him to question everything he's ever known.

Chasing a ghost he believed was long dead, Cross gets pulled into a case that has local cops scratching their heads and needing his help: a grisly string of socialite murders. Now he's hot on the trail of both a brutal killer, and the truth about his own past-and the answers he finds might be fatal.

Here's a little exclusive something about our friend Alex Cross. In his next book, you're going to learn a lot more about Alex's family history. That's because his cousin, Stefan, is accused of murder. So Alex heads back to his hometown of Starksville, NC (pop. 21,010) to help with the case. There, we'll get to meet all sorts of characters from Alex's past -- including a real firecracker named Aunt Hattie. If you're a Nana Mama fan like I am, I think you're really going to enjoy meeting Hattie. Let's just say loyalty runs deep—and fierce—in the Crosses' blood.

Cross Justice comes out Nov. 23. And, they tell me, you can pre-order it now.
