The Good Book Guide Review

Nobody is likely to argue with the strap line of this novel: ‘The world’s bestselling thriller writer’, and despite the fact that this is a substantial book at 500-odd pages, it is Patterson flying solo (at least according to the jacket), with no backup from one of his army of co-writers. In fact, this is one of the most solid of the Alex Cross entries in which the detective finds himself unable to protect those close to him from one of the many enemies he has made over the years. But his nemesis in Cross My Heart is even more unspeakable than some of the very nasty pieces of work that Cross has previously encountered.

Cross My Heart (Alex Cross 21) Press Reviews

'Behind all the noise and the numbers, we shouldn't forget that no one gets this big without amazing natural storytelling talent - which is what Jim has, in spades. The Alex Cross series proves it. It just rolls along, irresistibly. Here's to the next twenty years.'

- Lee Child

 

'It's no mystery why James Patterson is the world's most popular thriller writer: his uncanny skill in creating living, breathing characters we truly feel for and seamless, lightning-fast plots. I do this for a living, and he still manages to keep me guessing from the first to last page. I've been a devoted Alex Cross fan for twenty years, when the first in the series appeared, and Cross My Heart proves that both author and his hero are at the top of their game. It's virtually a one-sitting read, and what a read it is: Get ready for sweaty palms and lost sleep - and prepare yourself for one of the most gripping endings of any thriller in recent memory. Simply put: Nobody does it better.Jeffery Deaver James Patterson is The Boss. End of.'

- Ian Rankin

 

'Twenty years ago, I wrote, Along Came a Spider is the best thriller I've come across in many a year. It deserves to be this season's no. 1 bestseller and should instantly make James Patterson a household name. A household name, indeed. Congratulations, Jim, on twenty years of Alex Cross and on Cross My Heart, which I am loving. You the man.'

- Nelson DeMille

 

'Every once in a while a writer comes along and fundamentally changes the way people read. He or she is so bright, so innovative, so industrious that what they envision and create becomes the measure by which all others are judged. In 1993 one such writer - James Patterson - began to do just that. Now, 20 years later, with his mission still unfolding, James Patterson is the gold standard by which all others are judged. Bravo, Jim.'

- Steve Berry
