Cross Fire

(Alex Cross 17)




The Mastermind is back – and he’s about to destroy everything – and everyone – Alex Cross loves.

Detective Alex Cross and Bree’s wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of a perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington DC’s most hated public figures: a corrupt congressman and a scheming lobbyist. All leads Cross finds reach dead-ends and the prospect of finding the killer seems nearly impossible. As more crooked politicians are picked off with simliar long-range shots, public opinion is divided – is the elusive marksman a vigilante or a hero?

Media coverage of the case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction. As Alex struggles with the sniper, Siegel, and the wedding, he receives a call from his deadliest adversary, Kyle Craig. The Mastermind is in DC and will not relent until he has eliminated Cross – and his family – for good. With a supercharged blend of suspense, action, and deception, Cross Fire is James Patterson's most exciting Alex Cross novel yet.
