Cross Kill by James Patterson – Alex Cross #23.5 (EPUB)
Alex Cross, I’m coming for you–even from the grave if I have to.
Along Came a Spider killer Gary Soneji has been dead for over ten years. Alex Cross watched him die. But today, Cross saw him gun down his partner. Is Soneji alive? A ghost? Or something even more sinister?
Nothing will prepare you for the wicked truth.
Detective Alex Cross was working in the soup kitchen alongside his partner Detective John Sampson when they heard gunshots from behind them in the kitchen. Their immediate response saw two injured kitchen workers, one seriously – but the shock Cross felt when the culprit opened fire once again, downing Sampson and hitting Cross in the chest, was immense. Because the person shooting at them was Gary Soneji who had been dead for ten years!
Heartbroken at Sampson’s injuries, nonetheless Cross was determined to find Soneji – or whoever it was. The search was on and the hunt was wide. His police team were sceptical but respected Cross’ knowledge – but the words of a killer, echoing from a long ago past – I’m coming for you – even from the grave if I have to… had Cross on edge. What was happening? The situation was escalating and Cross felt he was wading in sludge…
Cross Kill by James Patterson is #23.5 in the Detective Alex Cross series, and one of the author’s new BookShots novellas. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and can’t wait for the next in the series; Cross the Line, out later this year. Mystery, intrigue and heartbreak fill this novella – I couldn’t put it down. A great addition to the series which I recommend highly.
