Cross Fire | by James Patterson

Cross Fire by James Patterson
(Little, Brown & Co., 2010, 384 pages)

I just got through reading Cross Fire by James Patterson.  He writes great crime thrillers.  It was very good and it definitely kept me in suspense.  It follows the Alex Cross series that he writes.  This is the 17th book in the series.

Alex Cross is a detective that solves murders of the worst kinds.  In this one, he’s finally about to get married to his longtime girlfriend, who also happens to be a detective.  But the wedding is put on hold because of some murders that have taken place in Washington D.C.  Crooked politicians are being killed off.

Then an old enemy of Alex’s reappears to try and kill Alex and his family and will stop at nothing to do it.  This book has plenty of action, deception and suspense.  Another reason I love Patterson’s writing is because the chapters are only 2-3 pages long.  His books are very quick reads and keep you in suspense to the very end.

I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of crime thrillers!!!
