Criss Cross

(Alex Cross 27)




Alex Cross must confront a criminal from his past before his master plan to frame him succeeds, in the latest instalment to the bestselling series by James Patterson

'No one gets this big without amazing natural storytelling talent - which is what Jim has, in spades. The Alex Cross series proves it.' - Lee Child, international bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
From the author of Sunday Times no. 1 bestseller The President is Missing
Could a ghost from his past take everything away from Alex Cross?

Mere hours after witnessing the execution of a killer he helped put behind bars, Alex Cross is called to the scene of a copycat murder. A note signed 'M' rests on the corpse: 'You messed up big time, Dr. Cross.'

Was an innocent man just put to death? As the executed convict's family launch a vicious campaign against Cross, his abilities as a detective are called into question.

The enigmatic 'M' lures Cross out of Washington, DC to the sites of multiple homicides, all marked with distressingly familiar details that conjure up decades-old cases and Cross family secrets.

Details that make it clear M is after a prize so dear that – were the killer to attain it – Cross's life would be destroyed.

'Alex Cross is a legend.' Harlan Coben
