Another great Alex Cross' books. Two sets of murders compete for attention - the death of two young black children who live near Alex' home and the murders committed by Jack and Jill. Very exciting. The ending is shocking, which is typical of Patterson's novels. Don't miss this one!

One of the best Patterson I have read so far, much better than the previous book, "Hide and Seek"... If you've read "Along Came A Spider", you will understand more of the allusions in this one. Alex Cross is working on concurrent cases, one involving murdered children near his son's school, Sojourner Truth, and one involving prominent D.C. personages in which rhyming notes are left signed by the killers, Jack and Jill. Jack and Jill are cold accurate murderers with no discernible pattern - their purpose only becomes evident as their ultimate target becomes known -- the President of the United States. Webs of deceit and mistrust even among the "good guys" make for a chilling puzzle.

Cross draws well-rounded portraits of all the killers, as well as of Cross and the principal of the Truth School. The most important identities are hidden until well near the end. The murderer of the children (who calls himself "nobody") evokes Cross's most conflicting feelings, and ours as well. The ghost of Gary Soneji haunts this book and appears briefly, I will not say when or how. You won't forget this one quickly...

The third novel in the Alex Cross series. Jack and Jill play a game selecting important politicians and entertainers to be murdered, while a rash of child murders in lower social strata happen simultaneously, and Alex Cross is assigned the tak of finding the monsters responsible. This was a fast paced listen, and provided more character development to Doctor Cross.

An Alex Cross novel. Someone is killing innocent children in the poor section of Washington and someone is stalking and killing celebraties in the capital city. Are the two related? Alex is pulled off the murder investigation of the children and is forced to be an investigator with the FBI on the celebrity stalkings. He is saddened by the lack of concern over the murders of the children in the poor section. How does he make the compromise?

Patterson threw me a curve with this one, and I liked it! This time around, psychologist-detective Alex Cross has to deal with a murderous couple who call themselves Jack and Jill. What's more, the pair's ultimate goal is to kill no less than the President of the United States! But who are Jack and Jill, and what is their motivation? Patterson will keep you guessing all the way to the climax.

Another Alex Cross novel (although you don't have to have read the first ones for this to make sense). This one parallels two serial killers- one who kills the 'weakest' of society (children) and one who kills powerful political players-- with the fictional President being his endgame. Great twist at the end- an enjoyable read.

Book Description
In the middle of the night, a controversial U.S. senator is found murdered in bed in his Georgetown pied-a-terre. The police turn up only one clue: a mysterious rhyme signed "Jack and Jill" promising that this is just the beginning. Jack and Jill are out to get the rich and famous, and they will stop at nothing until their fiendish plan is carried out. Meanwhile, Washington, D. C., homicide detective Alex Cross is called to a murder scene only blocks from his house, far from the corridors of power where he spends his days. The victim: a beautiful little girl, savagely beaten--and desposited in front of the elementary school Cross's son, Damon, attends. Could there be a connection between the two murders? As Cross tries to put the pieces together, the killer- or killers - strike again. And again. No one in Washington is safe - not children, not politicians, not even the President of the United States. Only Alex Cross has the skills and the courage to crack the case-but will he discover the truth in time?

I think this is the best of the Cross novels. Patterson makes it a little different than the other books, it has two killers, which he seems to like doing in these books, but his style of writing is better than his other books, as if he put more into this one. If you like James Patterson I suggest you read this one, I think its even better than Kiss the Girls.

There were two storylines in this book and both were compelling. Although I think the child killer characater could have been a little more developed. It was a page turner and I had a hard time putting it down. However, I was quite disappointed in the ending. It felt contrived and rushed. Even with that it was a very solid and enjoyable read.

A child killer is stalking the inner city of Washington, D.C., his latest victim Shanelle Green, an adorable first grader from Sojourner Truth School. This killing is especially unsettling to Detective Alex Cross. Sojourner Truth is the school his son Damon attends, just four blocks from his home.
While the death of an inner-city black child doesn't garner much media attention, another murder is making big headlines. The same day that Shanelle was beaten to death, Senator Daniel Fitzpatrick was found handcuffed to a bed and shot execution style. The only clue the police have to go on is a bizarre rhyme, signed "Jack and Jill," promising more high-profile executions, ultimately targeting the president of the United States. When Cross is called in to help protect the president, he begins to suspect that the two cases are somehow related. As he races to put all the pieces together, the killers continue their bloody rampage, paralyzing the city.

This is the 3rd novel in the Alex Cross series. After reading several other novels in the series, I decided to go back and read some of the ones I have missed. Well, I thought this one was one of the better books in the series. It was written right after Kiss the Girls which I thought was one of Patterson's best. This was before he started using co-authors to help with the writing. It was also longer and more detailed than some of the later novels. Anyone, very readable and a page-turner as usual. This one actually dealt with a pair of nasty murderers on the loose - the titular Jack & Jill as well as a killer of young school children. Both are complex and lead Cross down the wrong path on several occasions. The Jack & Jill part of the story almost reminded me of Vince Flynn's Term Limits where some high level Government officials were killed to promote change in the government. I thought Limits was a superior story, but overall I would also recommend Jack & Jill.
