Description

The vendetta that drives the plot stems from a deontological Mulch wants Cross to detour from his ethical schema and devoid himself from any system of value that may render him vulnerable to emotional connections. I don’t tend to read any of the Paterson/any other novelist co-authored books as they don’t appeal to me as much and I don’t hear as much positive feedback.

In a Virginia penitentiary, Alex Cross and his partner, John Sampson, witness the execution of a killer they helped convict. This was an insane reading experience because of the attachment to the characters since it is over twenty books into the series. Alex soon realizes he may have much to answer for, as "M" lures the detective out of the capital to the sites of multiple homicides, all marked with distressingly familiar details -- details that conjure up decades-old cases. Behind these three highly skilled killing machines there appears to be an even more threatening controller. Every book, he dangles something for the reader to seize on, a hope that something meaningful might occur, and every time things go back to the status quo against all odds.But the “danger to loved ones due to his profession” card, taken to the extreme in this installment, has been rather overplayed in this series and really is getting a bit tired. It's more gritty and the storyline more believable although I felt that you had to suspend belief in the end bit. It's funny now when I read a JP book on my kindle, it seems the first 5% is taken up just listing his previous books. Hope to Die picks up where Cross My Heart ended (I only got the title tie-in now), with Alex Cross falling apart because his family has been kidnapped.

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. Thierry’s warfare against Cross is a psychological one; a nightmare whose ending will culminate in the torture and murder of each member of the Cross family.Cross's ingenious pursuit of the killer produces a suspect: a British diplomat named Geoffrey Shafer. These two novels are linked, which is I think the first time Patterson has chosen to make consecutive novels a single story (not including the cross-book storyline featuring the Mastermind from the earlier books, although this is a similar idea, if shorter). Discovering the identity of this lethal genius will prove to be Cross's most terrifying challenge ever. The climax of the book is exciting and rewards readers who didn’t jump ship with Cross My Heart, like a few people in the Goodreads reviews section said that they were going to do, and Patterson finds a way of pulling back readers who had a waning interest in the series. If you liked the early Alex Cross series then don't miss reading this one it was way better than any of the first novels in this series.

At the end of Cross My Heart, the 21st in the series, Cross had lost his entire family to kidnappings by a demented killer. While John Sampson of DC Metro Police investigates the last movements of Christopher Randall, the educator killed along with Kay Willingham, detective Alex Cross and FBI special agent Ned Mahoney find unanswered questions from Willingham's past, before she arrived in DC and became known in DC society as someone who could make things happen. Alex is remarkably smooth considering the potential for loss, and the murderer demonstrates a talent for the gory and unlikely when he kills.Alex will put on many miles, and get unexpected help, along his way to track down this psychopath, in hopes that he can save at least some of the ones he holds dear.

As Alex and Siegel battle over jurisdiction, the murders continue-and they won't stop until Cross and his family are gone for good. From his grandmother, Alex Cross has heard the story of his great uncle Abraham and his struggles for survival in the era of the Ku Klux Klan. Cross's family – his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children--have been ripped away. As he explores the possibility of a new relationship with a woman who offers him new hope, Alex must also confront the fact that his beloved grandmother is only human.As the prosecution presents its case, and the nation watches, even those closest to Cross begin to doubt his innocence.
