The charges: explosive Alex Cross has never been on the wrong side of the law-until now. Charged with gunning down followers of his nemesis Gary Soneji in cold blood, Cross is being turned into the poster child for trigger-happy cops who think they're above the law. Cross knows it was self-defense. But will a jury see it that way? The evidence: shocking As Cross fights for his professional life and his freedom, his former partner John Sampson brings him a gruesome, titillating video tied to the mysterious disappearances of several young girls. Despite his suspension from the department, Cross can't say no to Sampson. The illicit investigation leads them to the darkest corners of the Internet, where murder is just another form of entertainment. The People vs. Alex Cross: the trial of the century As the prosecution presents its case, and the nation watches, even those closest to Cross begin to doubt his innocence. If he can't convince his own family that he didn't pull the trigger with intent to kill, how can he hope to persuade a jury? But even with everything on the line, Cross will do whatever it takes to stop a dangerous criminal...even if he can't save himself.… (more)

Love this series and The People vs. Alex Cross did not disappoint.

There are two plots in this book. The major one being Alex Cross accused and tried for excessive violence. Killer Cop. Second plot which ends with a major thrilling action was the missing of six blonde women. Chapters are short, the story is fast and overall a page turner.

With dozens of book out annually, I find it difficult to follow James Patterson and so I stop. Almost all the books are published with a coauthor and they are so so books. I decided to stick with the ones I really liked: Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club, RED, and Michael Bennett. Some standalone books were good but not all depending on who the coauthor was. ( )

Now I know why I started reading everything James Patterson writes. A number of his recent books have been really hit and miss and disappointment in both story and writing. Then I start this one and could feel the stronger story line building with significantly better writing. Seldom if ever does Patterson write a so - so Alex Cross book and this one was very well written, his character development was good and the story very solid. James Patterson has written about Alex Cross so in depth and frequently to those of us who have read this series since the start he is like an old friend. And this book is just another adventure with an old friend and his family.

If you are a Patterson fan, this is a must read. Pretty well James Patterson at his story telling and thrilling peak. Thank you James Patterson. All your so so stories are forgiven. ( )

Yet he seems to always manage to envelop his readers in two equally important major story lines—like a two-plot story in which the subplot is as relevant as the main. Not easy to pull off for any writer.
