Overview

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.

CROSS MY HEART is the most powerful Alex Cross novel ever, propelled by the ever-ingenious mind of James Patterson, the world's #1 bestselling writer.

What People are Saying About This

READERS LOVE I, ALEX CROSS!

"[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

"I truly believe that James Patterson has an IV hooked up to his writing arm and Great Ideas, Great Plots, and Great Characters dribble constantly into his bloodstream...I, Alex Cross stuns."
—- TheReviewBroads.com

"The stakes are higher than ever before...More than a crime thriller, it's an absorbing family drama."
—- NightsandWeekends.com

Nelson DeMille

"Twenty years ago, I wrote: 'Along Came a Spider is the best thriller I've come across in many a year. It deserves to be this season's #1 bestseller and should instantly make James Patterson a household name.' ...A household name, indeed. Congratulations, Jim, on twenty years of Alex Cross and on Cross My Heart, which I am loving. You the man." --Nelson DeMille

Lisa Scottoline

"Alex Cross is one of the best-written heroes in American fiction, and each Cross novel further defines what it means to be a professional, a husband, a father, and above all, a man. Congratulations to James Patterson on twenty years of Alex Cross—both of you only get better and better." --Lisa Scottoline

Steve Berry

"Every once in a while a writer comes along and fundamentally changes the way people read. He or she is so bright, so innovative, so industrious that what they envision and create becomes the measure by which all others are judged. In 1993 one such writer—James Patterson—began to do just that. Now, 20 years later, with his mission still unfolding, James Patterson is the gold standard by which all others are judged. Bravo, Jim." --Steve Berry

Lee Child

"Behind all the noise and the numbers, we shouldn't forget that no one gets this big without amazing natural storytelling talent—which is what Jim has, in spades. The Alex Cross series proves it. It just rolls along, irresistibly. Here's to the next twenty years." --Lee Child
