GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Cross Fire by James Patterson (AUDIO)

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. -

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

There are now 17  books in the Alex Cross series and this one has had it's ups and downs for me.  Cross Fire puts Alex Cross on an upswing for me.  There is a lot of drama and the audio really helps build the tension even better than reading it.  Of course, by the time I had this one finished, I find that there is a new book in the wings and I hope it ties up some loose threads in this story.

  65. I'm just getting used to listening to books rather that reading them---one drawback is that you can't listen faster like you can read faster! This is one more Patterson book I would like to ead or listen to.
