Detective Alex Cross is used to coming out on top in his duties in Washington, DC, but in CROSS COUNTRY he spends most of his time being beaten up and being held in custody. His frustration is expressed perfectly by narrator Peter Fernandez. Fernandez is ably assisted by Dion Graham, who fills in some of the story left out of the abridgment. Fernandez so powerfully tells the story of Cross's efforts to capture an international killer called "The Tiger" that the listener's fists knot with the tension as Cross's fortunes go from bad to worse. The bloody trail that leads to the ending makes Cross's ultimate success the kind he cannot afford to repeat. M.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
