Product Description


"Patterson's Kill Alex Cross is thriller with family at its heart...It's Patterson at the top of his game...Patterson is presenting three different families--Cross's, the terrorists' and President Coyle's--each with its own darkly parallel definitions of justice, loyalty and love. Underneath the fast-and-furious action, Patterson is exploring what it means to be a father, a man and, ultimately, a human being in an increasingly complex and dangerous world."—Lisa Scottoline, Washington Post

Product Description

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Addictive Series June 18 2012
By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER
Book 18, in the Alex Cross series

I have been a faithful follower of the Alex Cross series for many years now and I am always looking forward to reading what he has in store for us next. In this latest saga, things have been turn up a notch, it is faster and a little more exciting.

The story opens when the President's son and daughter are abducted from their school. Contrary to the wishes of many other influential people, the President requests Alex, a man who has not let him down in the past, to be the lead investigator. Alex is well-known to go the extra mile and think outside of the box to get favourable results under extreme circumstances.

Just as Alex seems to have the case of a life time on his hands he is drawn into other sub-plots. Terrorists are wreaking havoc in Washington D.C, they have assassinated the Secretary of State and at the same time they are tempering with the city's main water supply. On a personal side, Alex's grandmother, Nana, brings home a street child whose criminal action will eventually lead her to becoming a family member.

The plotting is a rollercoaster ride that progresses rapidly through short chapters and brief dialogue, it seems the newer the novel the more condensed the chapters are. However Mr. Patterson is well-known for his simple and entertaining style. This time to topic is based on terrorist activities with some neat twists to captivate us. Some of the players are your classic stereotype terrorists, their actions are somewhat predictable. They continually bad mouth the U.S.A. and when caught or have completed a mission they are perfectly willing to become martyrs for their cause and in this tale cyanide capsules are the recipe of the day.

This was a pretty good book and follows the similar plot development you see in many Patterson novels: two separate plotlines to follow. I have been disappointed by the last few Patterson novels when he has a co-author (Now You See Her and Tick Tock to name a few). I think that Patterson does better when he authors a book completely. I would prefer quality vs quantity as it's obvious he can write better on his own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kill Alex Cross June 19 2012
My attention was captured with the kidnapping of the Presidents children but I did NOT find the Terrorist sub-plot very captivating. Never the less, I kept reading and persevered to the end.
Not my favourite Alex Cross / Paterson book, but if I didn't read it, I would still be wondering what I missed!
If your a fan, you have to take a little bad with all that "Oh sooooo Good" :)

To me all Alex Cross thrillers are 5 stars! I have read every single one of them and as always looking forward to the next one. James Patterson doesn't's a thrill ride..and one that you won't be able to put down.
