Alex Cross is going home. But what will he find when he gets there?
When his cousin is accused of an unthinkable crime, Alex Cross returns to his North Carolina hometown for the first time in over three decades.

Chasing a ghost he believed was long dead, Cross gets pulled into a case involving a string of murders.
Now he's hot on the trail of both a cold-hearted killer and the truth about his own past - and the answers he finds could be fatal.

You could start listening at chapter 50 the ending is OK. Its very slow :(
"what utter rubbish!"
I hadn't read a James Patterson book in years. I used to love the Alex Cross series but this was pure garbage. Like a redit bad C tv movie. what has happened to this author? it's like reading a yukky Danielle Steele novel. ad nauseum. awful. don't waste your time.
This was another great book from James Patterson. It was a bit different from the usual as the story involved his family going back to his hometown and discovering about his past. I felt it was a bit more involved and interesting than his usual novels and the loose ends all tied up at the finale. Great narration. Recommend.
Absolutely brilliant love James Patterson this has to be one of his best by far.
"Justice is served"
It has been a while but well worth the wait. A very enjoyable way to pass the past week on.my liesurly moments. Just enough time within the story given to each line of investigation to keep up interest with the crossing of lines between each.
A nice change of scenery with inclusion of the wider family to give much more insight into just what makes Alex Cross.
The ending became apparent to me quite a while before the end but he still managed to throw in a twist to complete the story.
A thoroughly enjoyabe listen and excellent narration.
"Beware can cause insomnia!"
Society murders in Florida, a story telling grandfather , what gave these to do with Alex Cross and his family. Little by little the threads are woven together to form a really thrilling pattern.
If I told you it would give the plot away, besides the whole story was so good it would be difficult to choose a favourite part.
This was my first, found it hard to " see" Alex in the voice, however I became so engrossed in the tale I soon forgot my irritation.
Tension, suspense, thrill a minute, it's all here.
James Patterson turns out book after book, I buy faithfully but always with the thought it can't live up to the last one, but it does. Long nay they continue.
"Another great book!"
Among my top 20' I listen to hundreds of books a year so that's pretty high.
Nana she's always so grounded and comes out with some cracking observations. She also provides a good balance in the book.
I liked the change in voices. The menace in the bad voices was great too.
Another non stop story of family skeletons and the will to succeed when everything is stacked against you.
I have read all the Alex Cross stories, which I must say have been really good, but this one is very disappointing .
Story line is very poor almost as if Patterson is struggling for ideas .
"Entertaining, if not challenging."
Easy listening, enjoyable crime story. Somewhat cheesy ending however, but the story was engaging and held my interest throughout the plot.
I have a friend who loves these books (in written form), so I have been dying to read an Alex Cross book for some time but due to the first few books not being available as audio books I never quite got around to it. Then, this book became available as "The deal Of The Day', so I thought I would give it a go. Well, I wish I had not bothered! The story was ridicules and the characters unbelievable. I am not a huge fan of crime fiction but do enjoy the genre when it is done right and this is not a patch on Tony Parsons' Max Wolfe series, Stephen King's Bill Hodges series or Robert Gailbraith's Cormoran Strike series.
I wish I had not bothered!
