In my opinion this is the best of the Alex Cross novels, enjoyable from the first page. Totally recommendable ( )

This is the last Alex Cross I am reading. I stopped reading the Women's Murder Club series a while back and now I'm stopping this series. I'm just tired of Alex Cross... that's right I said it. *****SPOILER ALERT AHEAD WARNING******

Great plot of former adversary who disquises himself to hunt Alex Cross while working with him on crimes. Alex's family barely escapes with their lives. ( )

I keep trying James Patterson thinking I'll like one his books, but as of yet, that hasn't happened. This one was no exception -- I almost stopped reading about a third of the way through. I'll try another in a couple years or if someone can suggest a good one, let me know. ( )

The return of Alex's adversary Kyle Craig assumes the identity of FBI agent Max Siegel and ended up working with Cross to find two snipers mitch and denny who take it upon themselves to kill people of questionable ethics. Plus Alex and Bree Stone get married. ( )

Book description
Wedding bells ring

Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and an underhanded lobbyist. Next, the elusive gunman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories—is the marksman a hero or a vigilante?

A murderer returns

The case explodes, and the FBI assigns agent Max Siegel to the investigation. As Alex and Siegel battle over jurisdiction, the murders continue. It becomes clear that they are the work of a professional who has detailed knowledge of his victims' movements—information that only a Washington insider could possess.

Caught in a lethal cross fire

As Alex contends with the sniper, Siegel, and the wedding, he receives a call from his deadliest adversary, Kyle Craig. The Mastermind is in D.C. and will not relent until he has eliminated Cross and his family for good. With a supercharged blend of action, deception, and suspense, Cross Fire is James Patterson's most visceral and exciting Alex Cross novel ever.
