Kill Alex Cross (Alex Cross, Bk 18) (Audio CD) (Abridged)
Kill Alex Cross - Alex Cross, Bk 18 - Audio CD - Abridged Author:James Patterson, Andre Braugher (Narrator), Zach Grenier (Narrator) The President's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark. A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the... more » most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced. As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes -- one that may alter the fate of the entire country.
When I was almost to end of book it had so far had nothing to do with killing Alex. Poor title choice, in my opinion. And it felt like 3/4's of the way through the story, Patterson decided he'd written enough pages so just hurried up and ended the major mystery in the book. He tied up most of the loose ends before finishing, but it just seemed rushed to me-- yep, poorly written as I've heard lots of reviewers say of Patterson's later attempts.
