When Detective Alex Cross is called to investigate a massacre-style murder scene, he is shocked to find that one of the victims is an old friend.

Angry, grieving, and more determined than ever, Cross begins the hunt for the perpetrators of this vicious crime. He is drawn into a dangerous underworld right in the heart of Washington DC that leads him on a life-threatening journey to the Niger Delta, where heroin dealing, slave trading and corruption are rife.

At the centre of this terrifying world, Cross finds the Tiger the psychopathic leader of a fearsome gang of killers who are not what they seem. As Cross tracks the elusive Tiger through Africa, he must battle against conspiracy and untold violence.

Alex Cross is in a heart-stopping chase that takes him across a vast and uncompromising landscape and finds him not only hunting for a horrific killer, but also fighting for his own survival.

  • Cross Country disappointment

    by on

    This is the first Alex Cross book I have not enjoyed. I typically cannot put these books down once started, however had to make myself finish this one. I found the storyline repetitive, a bit dull, and difficult to believe - some of his decisions just seemed outside of what I'd expect of Alex. No doubt the next one in the series will be back to its addictive best.

    "....the Tiger disappears into thin air. Tracking him to Africa, Alex knows that he must follow. Alone. "

    Huh? Why would Alex Cross, a really smart guy up to now, go to Africa, where he has absolutely no jurisdiction and no support, to track a killer? Alone! Puhleese!

    What a disappointment this book was! It was just too far-fetched, beyond belief. Alex Cross was beaten up so many times, it was a surprise he was still alive at the end. I think that Patterson has run out of things for Alex Cross to do. Maybe the next one will be better..............but I sure won't be paying full price for it like I did for this one!
