Kill Alex Cross [Hardcover]

I've finished "Kill Alex Cross" the 17th book in his Alex Cross series by James Patterson.

Product Description

The President's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark.

A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced.

As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes -- one that may alter the fate of the entire country. KILL ALEX CROSS is faster, more exciting, and more tightly wound than any Alex Cross thriller James Patterson has ever written!

My Review:

The President's son and daughter are kidnapped from their high-tech high school while terrorist attacks are being carried out all over Washington State.  Alex Cross is assigned the job to find out if both these two are connected to each other, to bring the President's children back alive and to stop any further attacks against Washington State.

This book has non-stop action right from the get go to the end of the book.  We see some old friends while there is new faces introduced to us.

This book had lots of twists and turns which keeps you on toes.



  1. I've not read this one yet but I have read all his others. I love Alex Cross. Some are better then others but none are bad. IMO anyway. LOL Thanks for the review.

  2. I'm a huge Alex Cross fan. It appears that this novel has gotten mixed reviews. After reading this review I'm glad to see that Patterson hasn't let down everyone. I'll still read this book eventually since I've enjoyed his others. Great review.
