James Patterson raises the stakes to their highest level, ever - when Alex Cross becomes the obsession of a genius of menace set on proving that he is the greatest mind in the history of crime.
Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart - nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife, Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.
When the ones Cross loves are in danger, he will do anything to protect them. If he does anything to protect them, they will die.
“Michael Boatman gives a first-rate narration in this latest installment in the Alex Cross series. A second narrator, Tom Wopat, artfully portrays the homicidal maniac who plans to destroy Alex by destroying his family. Boatman captures the tension in the plot and keeps the listener engaged with the action. His portrayal of a bereaved Alex Cross--voice trembling with despair--will have listeners spellbound. And his total command of the story is like a zip line to Alex's hell. Though the symphony of terror isn't over at the conclusion of the audiobook, fans of Michael Boatman will revel in his delivery of this captivating thriller.” (AudioFile)
"[Patterson's] books don't pussyfoot around when it comes to the villains. These are bad, bad people... [I, Alex Cross] is political, with a lot of intrigue in high places." (Al Roker, The Today Show)

Worst Story EVER!
I liked the narrators. I may never buy another James Patterson book. The ending made me feel cheated.
No, I will not listen to James Patterson again. The end of this book was awful. As the author's note indicated, everyone goes through tragedy and disappointment. Mr. Patterson wasted nine hours of my life only to end his book on that note. The ending was a huge disappointment. I felt ripped off at the end.
Of course it needs a follow- up, the book didn't have an ending.
Don't waste your money on this Alex cross novel.
Cheap Trick - Shame on Mr. Patterson
After this, I will not purchse another James Patterson book.
The performance wasn't the issue; the narrators did a fine job.
The story was a little weak and cliched, but the ending was beyond disappointing. Shades of "Gone Girl", but not as well written. I just didn't expect such a cheap trick from a well-established writer. It would have been totally different if it had been advertised as "Part I".
I would much rather have had the entire story in one novel. Since it wasn't clearly a "...to be continued" story, I feel cheated enough not to purchase Part II - if there ever is one. Looks like a cheap ploy to sell more books.
