You can't run
Detective Alex Cross is pulled out of a family celebration and given the awful news that a beloved relative has been found brutally murdered. Alex vows to hunt down the killer, and soon learns that she was mixed up in one of Washington's wildest scenes. And she was not this killer's only victim.
You can't hide
The hunt for her murderer leads Alex and his girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, to a place where every fantasy is possible, if you have the credentials to get in. Alex and Bree are soon facing down some very important, very protected, very dangerous people in levels of society where only one thing is certain--they will do anything to keep their secrets safe.
Alex Cross is your only hope to stay alive
As Alex closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable--a revelation that could rock the entire world. With the unstoppable action, unforeseeable twists, and edge-of-your-seat suspense that only a James Patterson thriller delivers, I, Alex Cross is the master of suspense at his sharpest and best.
As a long-time Jams Patterson fan I was very happy to read this book and have the opportunity to review it as well. I became a fan when Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider were made into movies with Morgan Freeman in the role of Alex Cross. I, Alex Cross is a wonderful addition to the Alex Cross series. It was refreshing to see that the author has a sense of whimsy as he has Alex comparing himself, off-handedly) to Morgan Freeman, it was one of the few smiles this book offered up.
The smiles came with interaction between Alex and his family, especially his Nana Mama, who undergoes a change in her role within the family and Alex’s girlfriend begins to play a much larger role. The book is not a happy book as a member of Alex’s family is found dead, murdered in a most grisly manner. Alex wades deeply into the Washington D.C. political realm from the White House down. Family, work, politics, and friendships provide a wonderful backdrop to the much larger story. Love the book, buy it!
