The toughest cases hit closest to home.

Alex Cross left his hometown, and some awful family tragedies, for a better life with Nana Mama in Washington, DC. He hasn't looked back.

Now his cousin Stefan has been accused of a horrible, unthinkable murder, and Cross drives south with Bree, Nana Mama, Jannie, and Ali to Starksville, North Carolina, for the first time in thirty-five years. Back home, he discovers a once proud community down on its luck, and local residents who don't welcome him with open arms. As Cross steps into his family home, the horrors of his childhood flood back--and he learns that they're not really over. He brings all his skill to finding out the truth about his cousin's case. But truth is hard to come by in a town where no one feels safe to speak.

Chasing his ghosts takes Cross all the way down to the sugarcane fields of Florida, where he gets pulled into a case that has local cops needing his kind of expertise: a string of socialite murders with ever more grisly settings. He's chasing too many loose ends--a brutal killer, the truth about his own past, and justice for his cousin--and any one of the answers might be fatal.

In Cross Justice, Alex Cross confronts the deadliest--and most personal--case of his career. It's a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride that proves you can go home again--but it just might kill you.

    CROSS JUSTICE was terrific. About the "bonus" CROSS KILL, don't bother. James Patterson must have had a deadline or non refundable tickets to use up. He used an epilogue to avoid finishing the book. It was a flimsy trick by an otherwise skillful author. A waste of
  • Who Wrote This?

    By RGP52
    Improbable coincidences and amazing revelations at every turn. This book is proof that a complex story line does not automatically translate into a good story. I've been a Patterson fan for many years and this is a big disappointment. Alex Cross acts out of character throughout, driven by emotion, ignoring his skills and experience. I have trouble believing James Patterson provided any more input than a broad story outline.

    This is the best Alex Cross book in years. While I enjoy all of them, this one is completely different from the others. In this one, we see Alex and Nana Mama confronting their past lived in North Carolina. We learn a little bit more about Alex's parents and new information comes up throughout that shocks the two (and readers). The twists and the Twins Peak type story makes it hard to put down. I won't give away too much, but in this one book we see this character we've known for twenty years get his background completely flipped.
  • Best Alex Cross book!!!

    I have to say this was one of the best out of the Cross series. Twists & turns & lots of guessing. I am looking forward to the next one!! Keep 'em coming!!!
  • Great book! Best Cross book!

    I love James Patterson but I had gotten a little tired of Alex Cross. I pre-ordered this book as I do all of his but I just couldn't make myself read it. A few days ago I was on a plane and thought I would try it. Wow! I could not put it down. I am a little shocked by the negative reviews. I loved it!!!

  • Preposterous

    What an unmitigated joke, foolish, simplistic, and utterly inconceivable..
  • TV movie screen play

    By eugemac
    What is this book doing on the best seller list? This is more of a poor screenplay for a TV movie. To label it a novel is insulting to other writers. I am truly sorry I wasted my time. I should have discarded it after the poor fantasy of the first chapter.
  • Awful
