With a supercharged blend of action, deception, and suspense, Cross Fire is James Patterson's most visceral and exciting Alex Cross novel ever.
I didn’t know what to think of this book for the longest time while reading it. It wasn’t the best and it wasn’t the worst. It was just somewhere in the middle.
It was more of a suspense novel that kept you guessing. It kept you guessing the backstories of the killers and also when a big reveal would eventually take place.
I spent most of my time reading just waiting for the bomb to drop.
Max Siegel is one of the most important characters in this book and not in a good way. It was almost frustrating knowing the truth before Alex did because you wanted him to just guess what was going on.
That being said, it was still very entertaining. There was a lot of action and a lot of character growth with Bree’s character. We got to see more of her and her interactions with the Cross family which was nice.
Once I got to the end, I was beyond excited. I wont post spoilers here, but I will put them under the cut. I cannot wait to read the next one now.
Read ahead for Spoilers
It was so annoying having Kyle Craig around the whole time and Alex not knowing it. I figured he would cause more trouble than he did, but I would like to know if Pop Pop is still alive.
THE BOOK ENDS WITH LINDSAY BOXER CONTACTING ALEX CROSS AND THAT IS ALL I HAVE EVER WANTED WHILE READING THEIR TWO SERIES AND I ALMOST THREW MY BOOK IN EXCITEMENT.
