The latest Cross novel begins with a woman named Hannah Willis running for her life. A mob
thug named Johnny Tucci, aka Twitchy, is trying to deliver a grizzly package, but is intercepted
before he can. And Vice President Tillman is ordering chief of staff Gabriel Reese to the
Eisenhower Executive Office Building in the middle of the night, where Agent Dan Cormorant briefs
him about missing persons, the code name Zeus and a deadly connection to the White House...
"I, Alex Cross," I began, "do solemnly promise—to
all those present at this birthday party—to do my best to
balance my life at home with my work life, and not to go over to
the dark side ever again." - I, Alex Cross
Alex makes a promise during a birthday celebration with family and girlfriend Bree. The
celebration is interrupted by bad news, Caroline Cross, his late brotherís only daughter, is dead.
Alex canít believe such a beautiful, kind woman was murdered and run through a wood chipper. Barely
enough left to get a fingerprint. Also in the grizzly bag are a few personal items, and at her
apartment some clues.
And so the ride begins....
Wow, what a listen. The first chapters set up the storyline then it
takes off, leaving the reader hanging on for dear life. After Alex
discovers Carolineís current job, and that others like her have
also gone missing, he immerses himself in the case.† Alex is again
pushed to the edge when something happens to Nana. Patterson has
really outdone himself with the cliff-hangers and twists and turns.
Itís an outstanding listen. Be sure to hang a Ďdo not disturbí sign
before you hit play.
