When Alex Cross is called to investigate a massacre style murder scene, he is shocked to find that the victim is an old college friend. Determined, more than ever, to find the perpetrators, he is quickly taken on a thrilling and life-threatening journey into a Washington D.C. Nigerian underworld where heroin dealing, a slave trade and oil and gas theft are all rife.

At the centre of this fearsome world, Cross finds the Tiger, the psychopathic leader of a terrifying gang. As the Tiger is on the prowl, showing no mercy to others, Alex Cross is hot on his heels in a chase that takes him to Africa and finds him not only hunting for a horrific killer but also fighting for his own survival.

Review:

The Alex Cross thrillers of James Paterson have become something of an institution. His criminal psychologist protagonist is one of the most vividly etched in the field, and the now-lengthy series of books has set a consistently high standard, even though Paterson's famous reliance on co-writers has become rather controversial. Cross Country involves Alex Cross in a caustic personal war against major-league corruption. It’s a narrative that takes the reader across a massive canvas. Alex is called in after a murder investigation - a crime that has resulted in considerable carnage. He discovers to his horror that the victim is an old friend, and this makes his search for the criminal involved even more determined than usual. His quest takes him into the underworld corners of Washington, DC, and even on to a massively dangerous odyssey to the Niger Delta.

The stakes are customarily high in James Patterson's crime narratives, but the author has ratcheted them up even more than usual here, with heroin traffic and the slave trade mixed into a heady brew. Perhaps the most memorably drawn character here is the psychopathic head of a group of killers, the 'Tiger'. The latter’s battle with Alex Cross has clearly re-energised the author, and Cross Country has all the compelling qualities of the earlier novels. If you haven't sampled an Alex Cross novel recently, this is the one to pick up. --Barry Forshaw

Review:

"[Cross Country] opens with one of the most chilling murder scenes I've read in a long time ... High-octane stuff" (Daily Express)

"It was absolutely fantastic ... Cross Country has an amazing sense of speed, there's a really brilliant tension in the plot ... You're just completely engrossed in it from start to finish ... The story is unrelentingly exciting" (The Simon Mayo show, BBC Radio 5 Live)
