Alex Cross chases a cold-blooded killer... with a conscience.

Shots ring out in the early morning hours in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. When the smoke clears, a prominent police official lies dead, leaving the city's police force scrambling for answers.

Under pressure from the mayor, Alex Cross steps into the leadership vacuum to investigate the case. But before Cross can make any headway, a brutal crime wave sweeps across the region. The deadly scenes share only one common thread the victims are all criminals. And the only thing more dangerous than a murderer without a conscience, is a killer who thinks he has justice on his side.

As Cross pursues an adversary who has appointed himself judge, jury, and executioner, he must take the law back into his own hands before the city he's sworn to protect descends into utter chaos.

    Cross The Line is the twenty-fourth book in the popular Alex Cross series by prolific American author, James Patterson. Detectives Alex Cross, Bree Stone and John Sampson are being kept busy: there’s a fatal car crash that turns out to be neither an accident, nor a singular event; a fatal drive-by shooting takes out their Chief of Detectives and his latest squeeze; and a multiple homicide at an illicit drug lab that smacks of vigilantism. The same type of weapon, a Remington 1911 .45 pistol, is common to at least two of these attacks.

    In typical Patterson fashion, there’s action aplenty in this page-turner: quite a lot of gunplay, some knives wielded, car chases and a hostage situation where the SWAT team gets gun-happy. Drugs, lots of dirty money, nerve gas and people smugglers also feature. Clues for the astute reader and a red herring or two lead to some dramatic climaxes.

    The blurb says “Alex Cross chases a cold-blooded killer with a conscience” but “ruthless vigilante with an agenda” is a better precis. “Alex Cross steps into the leadership vacuum’ from the back cover is also inaccurate. Ignoring those, this is one of the better Alex Cross novels, a vast improvement on 21 and 22: fast-paced and exciting.
