The pinnacle of all Alex Cross thrillers is now available as a value-priced audiobook!

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. The killer was never found, and the case turned cold, filed among the unsolved drive-bys in D.C.'s rough neighborhoods.

Years later, still haunted by his wife's death, Cross is making a bold move in his life. Now a free agent from the police and the FBI, he's set up practice as a psychologist once again. His life with Nana Mama, Damon, Jannie, and little Alex is finally getting in order. He even has a chance at a new love.

Then Cross's former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. He is tracking a serial rapist in Georgetown, one whose brutal modus operandi recalls a case Sampson and Cross worked together years earlier. When the case reveals a connection to Maria's death, Cross latches on for the most urgent and terrifying ride of his life.

Another great Alex Cross book! I love this series of books and hope it never ends.

I rent audio books to listen to when I travel. On my trip, I listened to 3 out of 7 CDs of this book. I swear, I couldn't stay in my car long enough to listen to the rest of this book. I think I'll be renting audio books now to go back and forth to work. The Alex Cross series is AWESOME !!! I can't wait to get Double Cross !!!!

I am a James Patterson fan but this was the first of the Alex Cross series I haved listened to. I did not think it was all that good. There was not that great suspense he creates with his Womens Murder Club series.

Perhaps I've just read too many James Patterson books. Don't get me wrong, I usually adore the Alex Cross series, but this book seemed very flat to me. While I was glad to hear the same narrator I've grown to love hearing while listening to Alex Cross novels, this particular entry in the series was slow, uneventful, and frankly, not terribly exciting. While it's a must-read for die-hard Alex Cross fans, I wouldn't recommend it to someone new to the Cross adventures.

I didn't care for this book at all. There was just too much of Nana Mamma..Nana? I like a good mystery/thriller but this just didn't cut it, it was just to cute for me. I am glad there were only 7 CDs other wise I couldn't have finished it.

Ok, I'm really getting tired of all the "family" stuff with Alex Cross. When I want a mystery/thriller, I want the plot line to get moving and keep moving. By the time the book ended, there had been so much interaction with Nana Momma, Jannie, Damon & Allie, that I didn't much care who murdered Maria long ago. The villain is indeed a monster, and the double narration works well. However, Alex is having too many conversations with himself to keep him a viable "good guy" any longer. I was disappointed.

Excellent, I love following Alex Cross and this was suspenseful. Patterson always has some crazy characters but this is the worse by far

I good book, and seems to get back to basics in terms of the Alex Cross series. The last few were relatively weak compared to the earlier ones. My biggest concern in the poor way of explaining how Maria's murder happened. In earlier books, it has already been attributed to a drive-by shooting, but this is not really dealt with here. Otherwise an excellent book -- the reader does a wonderful job of portraying The Butcher.
