Publisher Comments:

The President's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark.

A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced.

As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes--one that may alter the fate of the entire country. KILL ALEX CROSS is faster, more exciting, and more tightly wound than any Alex Cross thriller James Patterson has ever written

Review:

"The 18th Alex Cross thriller (after 2010's Cross Fire) recycles the kidnapping story line from the African-American super detective's debut, Along Came a Spider. When the U.S. president's children, 12-year-old Ethan and 14-year-old Zoe, elude their Secret Service detail by slipping out of a lecture hall window at their Washington, D.C., school, they end up the captives of a sadist, who sends the chief executive a note reading: 'There is no ransom. There are no demands. The price, Mr. President, is knowing that you will never see your children again.' After some perfunctory turf battles, Cross, who's with the D.C. Metropolitan police, gets assigned to the case, but he takes much longer than most readers will to identify the abductor. A Muslim terrorist subplot to destabilize the federal government does little to redeem the tired main plot. Patterson neither sweats the details nor invests his lead with more than two dimensions."

These comments relate to the audio version of this book. Nice voice distinction between Alex Cross (Andre Braugher) and the general narrative (Zach Grenier). Fast-paced, suspenseful, and typical of this author's work.
