James Patterson's Alex Cross Series
January 19, 2011
Last night, I finished reading James Patterson's newest book Cross Fire. This is the 17th book in this Alex Cross series.
If you have never read any of these books, you definitely will want to start at the beginning with the first book: Along Came a Spider. Alex Cross is a widowed father who lives with his mother, Nana Mama, who is helping him raise his three children Damon, Janelle, and Alex, Jr., also known as Ali or Little Alex. Alex is a police detective in Washington, D.C. where he is finally going to settle down with his girlfriend Bree. Things start to get a little crazy when a sniper starts taking out political figures, then a long-time enemy, Kyle Craig, is back to terrorize Alex once again. So if you're looking for a little action, you'll surely want to try James Patterson.
