Product Description

Product Description


The toughest cases hit closest to home.

Alex Cross left his hometown, and some awful family tragedies, for a better life with Nana Mama in Washington, DC. He hasn't looked back.

Now his cousin Stefan has been accused of a horrible, unthinkable murder, and Cross drives south with Bree, Nana Mama, Jannie, and Ali to Starksville, North Carolina, for the first time in thirty-five years. Back home, he discovers a once proud community down on its luck, and local residents who don't welcome him with open arms. As Cross steps into his family home, the horrors of his childhood flood back--and he learns that they're not really over. He brings all his skill to finding out the truth about his cousin's case. But truth is hard to come by in a town where no one feels safe to speak.

Chasing his ghosts takes Cross all the way down to the sugarcane fields of Florida, where he gets pulled into a case that has local cops needing his kind of expertise: a string of socialite murders with ever more grisly settings. He's chasing too many loose ends--a brutal killer, the truth about his own past, and justice for his cousin--and any one of the answers might be fatal.

In Cross Justice, Alex Cross confronts the deadliest--and most personal--case of his career. It's a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride that proves you can go home again--but it just might kill you.

By Tina #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Nov. 24 2015

Another great book in the Alex Cross series, the only James Patterson series I have ever been able to truly enjoy.

I can't believe this is number 23! and the author takes on a different tactic here - he sends Alex home in order to help a family member clear his name of murder. This is clever in many ways - 1) it changes the scenery completely, gives us a whole different bunch of good and bad guys 2) MOST IMPORTANTLY, we discover a lot more of Alex Cross and why he became who he is 3) it gives Patterson a chance to throw a bunch of emotions (on the part of Alex) having him struggle with reality vs what he thinks is the truth.

This book does start off a tad slowly as we are in a car with the Cross family and the dialogue seems to go on forever. That car ride felt very long, however, the stories starts to unfold very quickly (especially considering the prologue - which you MUST read).

It is always hard for me to write a review on the Cross books because this is the ONLY series that I pre buy and then read like a maniac, meaning that I end up writing my review the day after the book comes out - making it hard to write because I am paranoid about giving out spoilers (even inadvertently).

Suffice it to say that if you love Alex Cross the way I do, then Cross Justice is a must. It gives us more information on Cross, the story is compelling and to be honest, I honestly did not know for quite some time what was happening with Stefan (the cousin) and Scootchie who is innocent?

There is a lot going on in this one and although I am not a huge fan of thrillers that use the past (because I find it can slow down the story - every time we have to go down memory lane) Patterson makes it work here.

The pace is great (except for the first chapter) and as always Patterson writes short chapters that make it easy to keep up a quick pace.

For me it started slow. Too much description that felt like filling out the book. Then it started to get into the main story and the book picked up tempo. Still another good read. The preview of Private Paris hooked me. As an aside I liked the description of the troubled parts of Paris and what futures some people have.

Blockbuster! Patterson at his absolute pinnacle of Excellence!

I have loved Alex Cross since we first met him 23 books ago.
Reading Cross books is like catching up with a very good friend who has always lived life on the edge.
Every book in the series has gotten better and better and we've seen Alex Cross come through so many
heart pounding crises by the skin of his teeth.
This is by far the most poignant of all. Patterson this time not only kept me on the edge of my seat, but he also made me cry.
It is such a treat when James Patterson presents his loyal readers with the Alex Cross books that are written by his own hand without any other authors.
Pure Patterson, pure nailbiting delight!
The only negative is that we'll have to wait another year before we see what Alex Cross will be up to next.
Thanks for a wonderful read! Less than a day to finish this. I couldn't put it down.

Patterson keeps you glued page after page! Characterization of the Good Guys and the Bad Guys comes so easy to him that you visualize them as if they are in front of you! The best Cross for a long time!

Having been a follower of the Alex Cross series since the beginning, book # 23, this is the book which reveals the early years of Alex and details on his family that even Alex and NanaMama didn't know.

When Alex's cousin, Stefan Tate, is charged with the brutal rape and murder of his student, Rashawn Turnbull, Alex packs up his family and returns to his his birthplace of Starskville N. Carolina. Just driving into town is unsettling and Alex finds a floodgate of memories blindsiding him.

Alex's extended family reveal the truth of his traumatic childhood while Alex & Bree discover corruption in the town's police and judicial departments as well as the source of illegal drugs.

A series of suicides of socialites in Palm Beach FL are actually murders committed by a cross-dressing man. How Alex ends up involved in solving the case is typical of James Patterson's ability to weave plots into a solid story.
