First of all, the product details is wrong... This book description says 353 pages but it is actually 101. It's a short novel packed with gripping suspense and some hair-raising action. It's Christmas and as we all know, Alex has high family values. The kids, Bree and Nana is his life. He gets called out to a hostage situation that turns deadly and during this time Alex has to make some serious decisions that affect his whole family, especially at Christmas.
This is a most memorable story but, the price is ridiculous.
5 stars for the story

This is a typical Alex Cross story, a direct sequel to “Kill Alex Cross”, with a similar plot-featuring Hala from the previous installment but does feature new characters, some new elements and a few other story lines. It is jammed packed with action as we see Alex being pulled out of the family Christmas celebrations and rush on scenes and confront the unthinkable.
Following are two heart-pounding threads: first, Alex is forced to make a decision when a father is threatening to murder his children and ex-wife. Whatever the decision, the results could end as many lives as it saves, that including his own. Second: a cat and mouse game with Jihadists on a mission to do as much harm as possible. Union Station seems to be Hala and her team’s primary target….Alex is on speed dial with the FBI and evidently is the in-between guy….
This novel is the usual James Patterson, short chapters, sharp narrative, intense actions and likeable characters. This is good entertainment easily read in a few hours. It may have Christmas as a backdrop but it is a thriller for all times. It has a wonderful contrast between the grim reality of terrorism and the lovely close relationship of the Cross’s family.
Good read to pass time.
This book as all the making for a hell of a movie.
