Publisher's Summary

Detective Alex Cross is being stalked by a psychotic genius, forced to play the deadliest game of his career.

Cross's family – his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children--have been ripped away. Terrified and desperate, Cross must give this mad man what he wants if he has any chance of saving the most important people in his life. The stakes have never been higher: What will Cross sacrifice to save the ones he loves?

Widely praised by the greatest crime and thriller writers of our time, Cross My Heart set a jaw-dropping story in motion. Hope to Die propels Alex Cross's greatest challenge to its astonishing finish, proving why Jeffery Deaver says "nobody does it better" than James Patterson.

What is wrong with the cross books on audible!

This is the third book I have downloaded and each one keeps skipping and missing the first 15 seconds of a chapter. I can still listen but I have to keep rewinding it. Which is ridiculous! It’s such a shame as the stories themselves are great.

Could have written better myself

It's unbelievable to think this book is written by the same author who penned the early Alex Cross books. It is completely predictable from start to finish

Never again

What would have made Hope to Die better?

I should never have started listening to it.

Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson again?

No way.

How could the performance have been better?

Pay listeners.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No, not one.

Any additional comments?

The book started badly and went quickly downhill from there.

Why, WHY?

Firstly I have really enjoyed the Alex Cross stories over the years but it seems as though Mr P has begun to run out of original ideas. This seems to be a trend with these big named authors with long running characters like Reacher and Harry Bosch. Sadly this episode of Cross has more padding than a shopping centre Santa, less direction than a Polish lorry driver on the M25 and more predictable than a interview with Jose Mourinho. To quote Cross " why me god, what have I done to deserve this?".
