About this deal

To summarize: I love Patterson's machine gun writing style, but find the premise of the Alex Cross series tired and unrealistic, i. Two clever pattern killers are collaborating, cooperating, competing-and they are working coast to coast. Now he's hot on the trail of both a brutal killer, and the truth about his own past-and the answers he finds might be fatal.

As he tries to prove his cousin's innocence in a town where everyone seems to be on the take, Cross unearths a family secret that forces him to question everything he's ever known. But function he must if he has even the slightest chance of catching the diabolical killer and find his precious Nana Mama and the rest of his children alive. As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes-one that may alter the fate of the entire country. Between John Sampson, his FBI friends, his tenacity and Ava's creativity, Alex is able to discover the identity of the man torturing him.Details that make clear that M is after a prize so dear that -- were the killer to attain it -- Alex's heart would no longer have reason to beat. The Detective is missing his Wife, Bree, who’s been kidnapped by a psychotic assassin along with Nana Mama and his children. This one was action packed throughout and leaves readers on the edge wondering how the plot was going to play out. I hope this is not a preview of oncoming books where you have to purchase an analysis to find out the outcome .

Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. A single-case focus in this novel also keeps the pace easier to handle, as the reader need not divide the brain into too many sub-parts to keep the larger story straight. Cross My Heart ended on quite the cliffhanger, with Alex Cross distraught and lost, so I was very eager to get my hands on Hope to Die.The police turn up only one clue: a mysterious rhyme signed "Jack and Jill" promising that this is just the beginning. The climax of the book is exciting and rewards readers who didn’t jump ship with Cross My Heart, like a few people in the Goodreads reviews section said that they were going to do, and Patterson finds a way of pulling back readers who had a waning interest in the series.

Jack and Jill are out to get the rich and famous, and they will stop at nothing until their fiendish plan is carried out. While Cross goes outside his normal practice and barters with the killer, the reader sees the true desperation in Cross's life. With white-hot speed, relentless drama, and hairpin turns, Alex Cross, Run is James Patterson's ultimate thrill ride.Ben enlists their help, and the two Crosses introduce him to the hidden side of the idyllic Southern town. Alex's family was kidnapped in the previous outing and we saw that he would go to any length to rescue them which was one of the villain's goal all along.
