Little, Brown and Company. Books by James Patterson.

Little, Brown and Company. New York Boston London. He had on a buckskin jacket, a snakeskin belt, and large horn-rimmed glasses that gave him the appearance of a rather studious country-and-western singer, or a loving college professor, take your pick. He seemed a curious choice as an attorney, but Kyle Craig had a reputation for brilliance, so the selection of Wainwright wasn’t seriously questioned.

Double Cross is vintage Patterson. It is fast moving and suspenseful and takes the occasional surprise twist. James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records

Synopsis

In this, the thirteenth installment for super-cop Alex Cross, he finds himself once again returning to the streets to catch a diabolical duo of killers. Pursuing a genius serial killer who thrives on killing his victims in front of the largest crowds he can muster, Cross has his hands full. Known as the "Audience Killer," he delights in murdering famous people in broad daylight and on live television. He posts streaming video on the Internet, all the while taunting and threatening to make Cross his ultimate victim.

As if this is not enough to keep Cross and his partner Bree Stone busy, former colleague and friend Kyle Craig performs a dramatic prison break and is bent on exacting his revenge on Cross for putting him in maximum security prison for four long years.

Craig and the Audience Killer are destined to team up and make life short and miserable for the retired detective.The action is fast-paced and the suspense is palpable in this high-tech crime thriller.

My Two Cents Worth

After a couple of unremarkable efforts, Patterson is back. Double Cross is probably the best effort in the series of Cross novels.

The plot is complicated and boasts some ingenious twists and turns, but very well developed and engaging. Patterson sets a scorching pace and keeps the reader completely engrossed in the story line. The prose is cohesive and concise and he paints a compelling story.

Cross is still bigger-than-life, but unlike some of the previous books, the action doesn't suffer from lapses in reality. I found it refreshing to be completely consumed in a story for a change.

Double Cross delivered, big-time.

This book is called "Double Cross," for a reason, and any reader wanting a thrill ride from D.C. to Wyoming will definitely get it with this great story. Alex also has a new love interest who seems, by all accounts to be acceptable to Nana & his children. It also has Kyle Craig?

Patterson just keeps getting better. Every Cross book is better than the last!
7more words required , better and better and better.

I have read several other Alex Cross books, and enjoyed them. This one, however, was lacking. Too much brutality for no other reason than to set up the next book in the series. Patterson is a very good writer, but this book didn't live up to what I have come to expect from him.

The great thing about fiction is that the writer can go ANYWHERE he or she wants to go and it's ok :-)! The character Alex Cross ends up in more trouble, more places than any person has a right to end up not to mention a cop. Again the story line intertwines between his personal life and cop life delicately and wonderfully and in the end you always know he's going to be allright and you root for Nana :-). Great book, just leads to another great book.

Read the preview, bought the book, still enjoying reading from time to time.
If it gets better I might buy more.

Double Cross (Alex Cross Novels)
I have read all of this series, my boyfriend got me hooked on them. He is an excellent writer, however I do not enjoy reading a book that has this much violence in it. Yes, I'm sure these situations exist, but I read to escape the stresses and horrors of everyday life not be immersed in it as this book does. The story is not that plausible for a real detective either and I found myself reading and saying oh come on, that wouldn't happen in real life. He has reached too far on this one and I won't be buying another in this series if it has the same type of violence that this once contains.
The James Patterson books that I've read are super quick reads. Lot's of chapters with lots of white-space between each chapter. A great, down-to-earth writing style that any 'normal' person can relate to. And most importantly: lots of action.

It's no wonder every writer under the sun is trying to get Patterson to attach his name to their own novels. Man, I think that there were four titles on the rack of popular books at the airport this week that had James Patterson's name on the cover either by himself or with a co-writer.

So is all this 'writing' burning the guy out? Because while Double Cross had the traits that I mentioned above, the story was not quite as well put together as what I was used to from Patterson. Double Cross was a little more engrossing that his last Cross novel...aptly named Cross...but like Cross, the last page of Double Cross left me scratching my head saying, "That's it?"

Double Cross deals with the hunt for a brutal serial killer that may have more connections to Alex Cross than he bargained for. Adding to Alex's troubles is the escape from prison by his arch nemesis. Brutal murder after brutal murder occur, and at the end of the story you're screaming for a justice equal to the atrocities that the bad guy has committed. But ultimately what I got just didn't feel 'right'. It felt 'rushed'. Like Patterson needed to get to his next co-write appointment. And then Double Cross just kind of seemed to have abruptly ended.

So overall, I did get wrapped up and thoroughly engrossed in the story. But I certainly didn't walk away with that satisfying Along Came a Spider or Kiss the Girls kind of feeling. I am going to give Patterson one more chance with I, Alex Cross. If he doesn't get back to top form, I'll be taking a long break before I try Crossing back over to the Alex Cross series.
