Series Sunday: Cross My Heart

(Alex Cross #21)

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

"He also believed Cross's family deserved the wickedness to come. Each and every one of them. Especially Dr. Alex." ~ pg. 15

My Series Sunday pick is Cross My Heart, the 21st book in the Alex Cross series by James Patterson. He may work long hours, may not be present for all breakfasts and dinners and run when duty calls, but he is still a family man at heart. Nothing matters more to him than his children, wife Bree and Nana Mama. A menace knows this and targets Alex Cross's family to prove he is a mastermind.

Just the thought of a killer hunting the Cross family with deadly intentions gives me the chills. This is a series—we need these characters! There is no Alex Cross without his family. Surely James Patterson wouldn't be so bold as to kill them all off. Or would he? As I read further, the suspense continued to build. The ending made me anxious for the 22nd book. Yes, this novel leaves readers wondering like a good mystery in a series does.

Cross My Heart has been dubbed as the most powerful Alex Cross novel ever. Hmmm, that statement is a reach but it certainly reminds me of why I continue reading this series.
