Book review: cross my heart

Author: James Patterson

In a single word, this book is phenomenal…

I am in awe of the way the author had linked farfetched plots and subplots beautifully to converge them into something beyond imagination.

Alex Cross is a cop and a complete family man. He lives a normal life with his wife Bree, also a cop, three children, and his grandmother. His days are spent hunting down criminals and solving crimes as expected but… A deranged man thinks he is far superior to Alex and eventually kidnaps his entire family in broad daylight. The preparations have been in place for a long time and Alex is now within the man’s psycho radar. Suddenly the tables are turned where Alex is now hunted and preyed upon.

Alex has made enemies but no one more lethal and closer to this one. Will his family perish…? He has spent a lifetime protecting others…would he be unable to protect his loved ones?

The novel ends on a cliff-hanger and I look forward to reading the next part.

There are parts where the intelligent antagonist teases Alex and sends crumbs his way leading to solving of a cold case involving mass murders. It makes the reader ponder over the strange ways in which the brainpower is put to use.

This was my first read by the author and a few of his books have breezed their way into my TBR list!
