Cross Country (Alex Cross Novels)
The mark of a truly good thriller is that it is tough to put down, and James Patterson’s Alex Cross series can always be counted on to keep me up reading into the wee hours of the night. In Cross Country, Alex travels to Africa and makes his way through the heart of civil-war-torn Nigeria and Sudan to follow the trail of a horrific killer who uses young boys as tools to further his agenda of mayhem. Cross Country is packed with action, twists, and a dark truth that remains shrouded until the very end.
Synopses & Reviews
"Bestseller Patterson's 14th Alex Cross thriller doesn't follow up on the plot threads left dangling in 2007's Double Cross concerning still-on-the-loose serial killer Kyle Craig. Instead, Cross, a Washington, D.C., police detective, takes on a very different quarry — a human monster known as the Tiger with ties to the African underworld. When the Tiger and his teenage thugs butcher writer Ellie Cox, her husband and children in their Georgetown home, Cross is devastated because Ellie had been his girlfriend in college. The Cox family massacre proves to be just the first in a series. Cross pursues the Tiger to Nigeria, where the profiler finds himself at the mercy of corrupt government officials who may be working with the Tiger. Spending less time than usual exploring his villain's psychological backstory, Patterson delivers an atypical tale of James Bond — style revenge. Craig's brief cameo toward the end suggests the series will resume its usual path in the next book." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man--the African warlord known as the Tiger. Just when the detectives think they're closing in on the elusive murderer, the Tiger disappears into thin air. Tracking him to Africa, Alex knows that he must follow. Alone.
From the author Time magazine has called the man who can't miss, CROSS COUNTRY is the most heart-stopping, speed-charged, electrifying Alex Cross thriller yet.
