I am a fan of the Alex Cross series but this one was a disappointment. The book was much shorter than most of the Alex Cross books, and the lack of character development obvious. And rather than being left with a warm holiday feeling, my main emotion was annoyance at the annoying whining grandmother and wife who couldn't accept that a police officer might be subject to being called out on a Holiday. It was totally unbelievable that Bree would go to a hostage situation and ask that Alex go home.
Put some effort into it. A side story about the new foster child might have added to my interest.
Why was this 6 hour book broken into two parts? Come on Audible, we don't need to "make the download faster" with a story this short.

AleX Cross at Xmas is the Bomb!
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fast paced thriller.
My most memorable part of the story is where Alex is in pursuit of a female villain who has a phobia of dogs. I will say no more. Wouldn't want to ruin it for anyone.
