Publisher's Summary

Detective Alex Cross is pulled out of a family celebration and given the awful news that his niece, Caroline, has been found brutally murdered. Cross vows to hunt down the killer, and soon learns that Caroline was mixed up in one of Washington's wildest scenes. And she was not this killer's only victim.

The hunt for her murderer leads Alex and his girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, to a place where every fantasy is possible, if you have the credentials to get in. Alex and Bree are soon facing down some very important, very protected, very dangerous people in levels of society where only one thing is certain - they will do anything to keep their secrets safe.

As Cross closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable - a revelation that could rock the entire world.

With the unstoppable action, unforeseeable twists, and edge-of-your-seat suspense that only a James Patterson thriller delivers, I, Alex Cross is the master of suspense at his sharpest and best.

love the series...not this story teller

I love this series. I'm listening to them back to back. it's hard enough hearing a different voice each book. takes a bit to adjust to it. but this one, is by far the worse. he has no emotion in his voice. he's so monotone. barely changes from seen to seen. voices aren't varied. sorry. struggling to follow this story because of it. but will persist.

Great Story. Suspenseful then Fizzles just Before the End

This book gets a 4 because even though it was a great story & was suspenseful, it didn’t fulfil the reader’s expectation of a satisfactory conclusion. The reward for being with the author right to the end. I was totally hooked in, then it all fizzled away to the family backstory. The big ending was who the who dunnit was. Then followed by very little action. If you could call it that. That’s it!

BORING! Waste of money

What would have made I, Alex Cross better?

Too slow to get going. Narrator was useless, hard to tell who was who. Never finished the book just couldn't get into it. I think after having listened to Michael Connelly's and Lee Child's books I now have high expectations of other authors. Really tried to get into this, but started to fall asleep. Far to slow. I wish Michael Connelly had more I could listen too but have got them all already.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Anything but James Patterson.

How could the performance have been better?

Narrator could have used a better variation of voices. Seemed a bit mono tone for me.

What character would you cut from I, Alex Cross?

Alex Cross. Get rid of him. Boring.

Any additional comments?

Annoyed. I was hoping this author would have given me another series to get into. But alas, too slow for me. shame,.

Brilliant

Strong, calm, sensitive.

I definitely want to listen to more audio books.

Dodgy English Accent

I always enjoy the Alex Cross books - nice easy listening which you don’t have to think about too much. Unfortunately one of the characters was from England and the narrater’s accent was not good, verging on comical - I always think it’s so weird that Americans struggle with an English accent - it didn’t ruin the story but it did make me laugh and also slightly cringe.....

Cliche overload

My friend insisted I read this. Load of rubbish. Cliche after cliche; reads like a (bad) parody of the genre. The ending...dreadful.
