About this deal

But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark. He is the creator of unforgettable characters and series, including Alex Cross, the Women’s Murder Club, Jane Effing Smith, and Maximum Ride, and of breathtaking true stories about the Kennedys, John Lennon, and Princess Diana, as well as our military heroes, police officers, and ER nurses. Having churned out some drivel in the past, he is now able to rectify this with some down to earth writing. If the reader can suspend disbelief regards the place and manner the hostages are held, Cross’s post-crash climb, the extreme convenience of the former profession of Mulch’s accomplice and the current career of Gloria Jones, then some quite good investigation keeps the story rolling at a fast pace.

This was an insane reading experience because of the attachment to the characters since it is over twenty books into the series. It was good, but the cliffhanger of an ending, as I said at the time, so reeked of promotion for this one that I almost vowed on principle not to read the follow-up. The police turn up only one clue: a mysterious rhyme signed "Jack and Jill" promising that this is just the beginning. Patterson and publishers: The action and interplay among the characters is wonderful, yet I can no longer see past the concept. If he can't convince his own family that he didn't pull the trigger with intent to kill, how can he hope to persuade a jury?

As the diplomat engages in a brilliant series of surprising countermoves, in and out of the courtroom, Alex and his fiancée become hopelessly entangled with the most memorable nemesis Alex Cross has ever faced. As the bodies pile up, and Cross is nearly murdered in his own home, the game of cat and mouse leads to one final trap. Alex's investigations are going nowhere, and he's too focused on the cases to notice that someone has been watching him-and will stop at nothing until he's dead. Ben enlists their help, and the two Crosses introduce him to the hidden side of the idyllic Southern town. Alex Cross will need to use all his skills as a doctor, a detective, and a family man to prevent that resistance from turning lethal .

Cross My Heart ended on quite the cliffhanger, with Alex Cross distraught and lost, so I was very eager to get my hands on Hope to Die.Alex Cross is happy, but his happiness is threatened by a series of chilling murders—murders with a pattern so twisted, it leaves investigators reeling. As he tries to prove his cousin's innocence in a town where everyone seems to be on the take, Cross unearths a family secret that forces him to question everything he's ever known. Patterson still has a knack for writing fast-paced, engaging thrillers that have readers gripped from the first page. The kidnapper, a known mass murderer and serial killer named Thierry Mulch, is living under a false identity, stalking and infiltrating the home and life of Cross.

Chasing a ghost he believed was long dead, Cross gets pulled into a case that has local cops scratching their heads and needing his help: a grisly string of socialite murders. His ex-fiancee, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life-and not for the reasons he might have hoped . The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again: a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. He’s not alone though, and has support from Ava, John Sampson and his allies in the FBI, making the book a compelling and engaging read.

Hope To Die" by James Patterson is the twenty second book in the famous Alex Cross series and for me definitely one of the better ones.
