Description

Cross My Heart ended on quite the cliffhanger, with Alex Cross distraught and lost, so I was very eager to get my hands on Hope to Die. Alex Cross is a hero for our time, and never more so than in this story of family, action, and the deepest moral choices.

This wouldn't particularly bother me if it didn't come along with all the other gimmicks that the author uses to create a false sense of tension. To be fair, there are more than a few "holes" in the story - from lapses in police procedure to how the killer manages to accomplish everything given time and circumstances to wasting too much space on repetition.Now, his life ruined, Creem is out of jail, and he's made sure that no one will recognize him-by giving himself a new face. While Cross goes outside his normal practice and barters with the killer, the reader sees the true desperation in Cross's life. Maybe I would not love them if I read them now or maybe I would and it’s just the later books that lost their way.

Drawing on their years of street training and an almost telepathic mutual trust, Cross and Sampson go deep behind military lines to confront the most terrifying-and deadly-killers they have ever encountered. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark. I hope this is not a preview of oncoming books where you have to purchase an analysis to find out the outcome . Alex's need for vengeance was placed on hold as he faced another huge challenge: raising his children without their mother.They were some major holes in this one, but it was a great follow on to Cross My Heart, and I was well convinced that someone may be back on the market for a bit. But the pictures may have been doctored, so with a few close allies, Alex is going to keep his hopes up, and try to find the madman that is haunting his every step. Alex Cross and Jezzie Flanagan are about to have a forbidden love affair-at the worst possible time for both of them. Kill Alex Cross is fast, exciting, and tightly wound, full of "fast-and-furious action" ( Washington Post).

The police turn up only one clue: a mysterious rhyme signed "Jack and Jill" promising that this is just the beginning. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Simply put, James Patterson seems totally unfazed by the rampant criticism with which Cross My Heart (Alex Cross) was received. And since I've always been a critic of what I consider to be short-changing readers by filling up to 20% of the advertised number of pages with sample chapters from other books, I'll note that the pages devoted to previews are far fewer here. Alex's family was kidnapped in the previous outing and we saw that he would go to any length to rescue them which was one of the villain's goal all along.Cross’s family-his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children-have been ripped away.
