#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Alex Cross is gravely injured. Only his partner and friend John Sampson can keep him safe . . . and get justice.

For the first time, John Sampson is on his own. 
The brilliant crime-solving duo of Washington, DC’s, Metro PD and the FBI has a proven MO: Detective Alex Cross makes his own rules. Detective John Sampson enforces them.
When military-style attacks erupt, brutally sidelining Cross, Sampson is sent reeling. The patterns are too random—Sampson’s friend, his partner, his brother—have told him. Don’t trust anyone
As a shadow force advances on the nation’s capital, Sampson alone must protect the Cross family, his own young daughter, and every American, including the president.

    Great read, excellent writing. Really enjoyed the focus on the John Sampson character.

    Sorry to say that I had to force myself to get through this book. I thought it would be interesting to read a story from Sampson’s POV, but the writing didn’t support it.
  • New author makes cross books intriguing

    Not your typical Alex cross book. Definitely more action more twists adds a new dimension to a Patterson book a great read. Dr golan

  • Love the Alex Cross Series

    Different view/narrator than Alex this time, took a few chapters to get used to that, then we find out why-very good book, as usual.
