When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man-the African warlord known as the Tiger. Just when the detectives think they're closing in on the elusive murderer, the Tiger disappears into thin air. Tracking him to Africa, Alex knows that he must follow. Alone. From the author Time magazine has called "the man who can't miss," CROSS COUNTRY is the most heart-stopping, speed-charged, electrifying Alex Cross thriller yet.

"Fans of Alex Cross will be pleased to see his story continue. Patterson's latest provides the familiar elements of murder and mystery but offers a new twist as the action moves from Washington, D.C., to the war-torn countries of Nigeria and Sudan. The audio presentation also attempts something a bit different with the use of two narrators. Peter J. Fernandez and Dion Graham deliver a clear, fast-paced performance and handle various accents deftly. Their voices, however, are so similar it's often difficult to make a sharp distinction between them. The production also includes music and sound effects, such as gunfire. The listener will have to decide if these add drama or create distraction. M.O.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
