    1. Alex Cross is back to help his family!Alex and his family are bound for NC where he grew up. He has ventured back to help his cousin, now facing the death penalty for murdering a 13 year old child. The painful, haunting memories of growing up in the poor town of Starkville, NC come flooding back upon his return. But Alex has a job to do - piece together the mystery surrounding his family. There’s the expected action: bullets flying and severed brake lines that always seem to accompany Alex. Th [...]


    2. Of all the book series written (or co-written) by James Patterson, those featuring police psychologist Dr. Alex Cross have remained at the top of my favorites list ever since the very first one (for the record, this is the 23rd). I'm happy to say this one doesn't disappoint. Also for the record, I was happy to see that it doesn't follow what seems to be a trend these days - books that are closer to a novella in length than a full-length book.As is expected with any Patterson book, the chapters a [...]


    3. The best Alex Cross book in many, many years. He and his family travel back to the town in which he was raised by his parents, who met with untimely ends, resulting in Alex and his brothers being adopted by Nana Mama and moving north. Alex is asked to assist his niece in defending his cousin, who is accused of rape and murder of a young boy. Meanwhile, there is a second storyline about a series of robbery/murders in Florida, where Alex goes to learn what really happened to his long dead father. [...]


    4. Cross JusticeAt first when I finished reading this novel I wasn't so sure what I really thought about it but the more I thought about it I ended up loving it. This book is like no other Alex Cross novel that I have ever read. It was a feel good book and I love that you never saw the ending coming. I love when James Patterson writes his own books without a co author, you can really tell the difference in the story and the writing. I'm so happy that he wrote a good book this time.


    5. Thirty five years it took Alex Cross to return to his roots – and that was only because his family called for his help in clearing his cousin Stefan’s name of the terrible charges that had been levelled against him. Apart from Alex’s eldest son Damon, the rest of the family arrived in Starksville, North Carolina where they joined Alex’s aunts and Uncle Clifford. As the trial began, Alex and Bree knew the evidence was strong against Stefan – but they also felt some things didn’t quite [...]


    6. WOW!!!!! no one can ever get enough of Mr pattersons booksyet again another great, fast paced, on edge, mysterious, brilliant, fantastic book from Mr patterson, again and again you can never get enough of Alex cross and his fine detective and police skills, and with every book of James patterson you will always be guessing and never figure it out, even when you think your on the right track and got it all sussed it will always be the one person you never even thought of Mr patterson hope the nex [...]


    7. Cross Justice is the twenty-third book in the popular Alex Cross series by prolific American author, James Patterson. Alex Cross, wife Bree Stone, Nana Mama, Jannie and Ali are in North Carolina. Needing a break after recent traumatic events in their lives, the Cross family heads to Starksville, the town from which Nana Mama rescued Alex and his brothers when their parents died. A request from his niece, lawyer Naomi Cross, sees Alex returning to the town he has not visited for thirty-five years [...]


    8. WOW!By far the best Alex Cross book yet. So full of suspense, family, intrigue, but so totally different from the others. James Patterson pulled out all stops to bring out every kind of emotion known--hate, disgust, empathy, sympathy, love, gratitude, greed, and many others. Thank you for giving us the true background on Alex Cross and allowing us to meet more of his family.


    9. While the last 50 pages were entertaining, the rest of it was almost painful to read. For the first 70 pages you meet about a character a page and they all come with long explanations like, "He was my Aunt Hattie's cousins kid" or "Nana Momma's brother's wife". It gets very confusing to keep them straight, and then you realize you don't have to because none of them matter anyway. Possibly my least favorite Cross book.


    10. It’s twenty-three years and twenty-three installments of justice the Alex Cross-way since the first book in the series, Along Came a Spider, appeared in 1992. James Patterson has changed little. His trademark short chapters continue to enthrall readers, and his books continue to sell like hot cakes. They continue to generate interest, and make for an exciting and fast read. My admiration for him is full to the brim though I also have a huge pile of gripes, mostly relating to the frequent relea [...]



    11. Alex and family travel to North Carolina to help prove his cousin is innocent of murder. Very entertaining and enjoyable book.


    12. Losing interest in these read. The potential track-star daughter seems to have the most interesting and important role.


    13. In this most recent Alex Cross novel, Patterson opens up about the protagonist who has been through many peaks and valleys over the past two decades. After an absence of over three decades, Alex Cross is headed home, back to his roots in North Carolina. While it would be nice to call this a family vacation in its truest form, Cross has a mission. Stefan Tate, a cousin, is on trial for rape and murder, with a pile of evidence making his guilt all but certain. However, Cross remains open-minded an [...]


    14. This is one of the best books I have read,with Alex Cross out to the town he was born and grew up in to assist in the trial of his cousin. The pages turn as you follow with the Cross family as they become involved in what happened years ago to the trial happening now. Problems appear at every step,leading to a thrilling and exciting end!! Any who like Patterson's Alex Cross must have this book on your list,definitely number one on mine!!


    15. The 23rd installment in the Alex Cross series and all I can say is wow. There are so many twists and turns and to think one huge surprise at the end. This novel really collaborates there family which I enjoy so much. Yet again Alex gets to help bring justice for a family member as well as write the wrongs of those in a small town, in fact his small town. For those reviews that I have read that this was more traditional Alex Cross and that this is the best one in awhile for James Patterson. I wil [...]


    16. I haven´t read any of the Alex Cross books (I had to read this one for a challenge) but if the others are even half as bad as this one I´m just glad that I will never have to read one again.This book was just a disjointed mess. There is practically no tension, all these stupid "coincidences" that advance the plot are maddening and the end is just no. It turned out that Alex´s father is still alive and OF COURSE his cousin was not guilty of a crime. Because god forbid anyone in his family is a [...]


    17. was fan van Patterson en ben het nog steeds, vooral de serie "Alex Cross" en "Womens murder club".Stefan, de neef van Cross wordt beschuldigd van een vreselijke misdaad. Alex wil hem helpen om zijn onschuld te bewijzen en keert daarvoor terug naar zijn geboortedorp. In zijn zoektoch naar de ware toedracht van de feiten stuit hij op een duister familiegeheim dat zijn leven totaal overhoop haalt. De hoofdstukken in het boek zijn telkens maar van 2-3 blz wat het lezen zeer vlot doet verlopen. Men z [...]



    18. Another great read by James Patterson. The Alex Cross series gets better and better. I highly recommend this book to ALL JP fans!!


    19. Esperaba mucho más. A su favor es muy fácil de leer. El giro final se lo podría haber ahorrado. Mi reseña completa entremislibrosyo.



    20. I hadn't read an Alex Cross novel for some time and now I really need to go back and read the ones I have missed. I thought Cross Justice was one of the best novels by Patterson that I have read and I would have to say that the Cross novels are the best of his series. Not sure if that is because Patterson actually wrote most of these books and did not rely on a co-author or just because Alex Cross is such a great character. In this one, Cross and his family travel to Starksville, North Carolina, [...]


    21. First off this book not only is the #23 book in the Alex Cross series but it also symbolises the 23rd year that Alex Cross has existed. James Patterson started writing the Alex Cross novels in 1993. This surprised me as I have always been a big fan of his books and the Alex Cross ones have always been my favourites. I still remember the day I found one of his books and read it and I was hooked. So hooked that I became a faithful and loyal reader of his books. Cross Justice started with Alex Cros [...]


    22. 3,50Que James Patterson convierte en bestseller todo lo que escribe en los EUA, es bien sabido. Ha obtenido el record Guinness por ser el escritor con más ejemplares vendidos —vende más libros que, por ejemplo, Stephen King—, es un autor muy prolífico al utilizar co-autores —puede llegar a publicar 16 libros al año—, y su personaje más famoso el detective Alex Cross, ha sido llevado a la gran pantalla por el actor Morgan Freeman. En esta ocasión, la última novela de Patterson lleg [...]


    23. I've been reading about Alex Cross and his family since 1993. He actually feels like part of my family – an uncle that I would love to get together with over the holidays.In this, the 23rd book in the series, Alex travels back to his beginnings in Starksville, North Carolina. His cousin, Stephan, has been charged with murder and rape. Stephan swears that he is innocent despite his shady past. On an extended leave from his D.C. job, Alex offers his assistance in getting to the heart of the matt [...]


    24. It's your typical over the top James Patterson unbelievable story. Until you're about 20 pages from the end and the answers are revealed. "How do you know all this?" "Because a previous life.I was Jason Cross." Seriously, James Patterson? It's like he couldn't find a way to tie it all together so let's have a previously thought to be dead father reincarnated to a police officer (background checks much) hold another officer at gunpoint in a courtroom (where Alex and Bree also have their guns??? B [...]


    25. This is the 3rd book in a row from this series that I've enjoyed recently.I think what did it for me liking this one so much was that it took place in North Carolina (and a little in Florida) and truths and secrets were revealed all the way to the end of the book.Alex and his family travel to North Carolina to help his cousin with a trial. Of course Alex becomes embroiled in the case as well as a few murders/mystery on the side.5 stars


    26. I borrowed this book from someone that I know that buys James Patterson books. I enjoyed reading this book. It had a good story to it. I look forward to the next book in this series.
