MT Review: Merry Christmas, Alex Cross [Hardcover]



I've finished "Merry Christmas, Alex Cross" by James Patterson.

Product Description

It's Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross has been called out to catch someone who's robbing his church's poor box. That mission behind him, Alex returns home to celebrate with Bree, Nana, and his children. The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again -- a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family. Alex risks everything -- and he may not make it back alive on this most sacred of family days. Alex Cross is a hero for our time, and never more so than in this story of family, action, and the deepest moral choices. MERRY CHRISTMAS, ALEX CROSS will be a holiday classic for years to come.

My Review:

On Christmas Eve Alex Cross is called to negotiate with a crazy and drugged up lawyer who has taken his ex-wife, their children, her new husband and the senator's wife hostage.  His life is spiraling out of control and him blames everyone for his loss.

The second story deals with Hala the terrorist that got away from the previous book.  She has come back to America to wipe out millions of people.  Alex works with the FBI to try to stop this mad women with dogs.

This book was very fast paced and before I knew it I was finished!  It was pretty intense especially the first story!

3/5

Thanks Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
