Jack & Jill
Alex Cross # 3

by James Patterson
Read by Blair Underwood and John Rubinstein

      Hachette audio brings Alex Cross, psychiatrist and homicide detective, back in the abridged version of Jack and Jill. It’s a revisit worth checking into because Jack and Jill is suspense times two. The plot is driven and intense -certainly not for the squeamish.

Dual serial killers vie for the D.C. police and Cross’ attention.

Someone is killing innocent children in a violent, bloody manner, and Cross fears for his family as death moves closer and closer to home. Listeners are forced to sit in silence as a killer puts Cross and his son in his deadly sites. It’s heart-stopping drama at its best.

Then there’s the murdering spree on a who’s who of D.C and Hollywood. Someone is killing the well-known in sadistic, shocking fashion. With each murder a rhyme is left behind as a clue. Soon Cross, the P.D. and the government fear for the president. It gives the rhyme of Jack and Jill a whole new meaning - a very bloody one. The conclusion will throw you for a loop.

Blair Underwood and John Rubinstein narrate the audio version. Great narration. Intense listen. Remember those headphones!
