Mary Cushnie-Mansour‘s review – Read from February 28 to March 02, 2016


Cross Justice by James PattersonJames Patterson writes with a fluid pen, keeping his chapters short and climatic so the reader will say, “Just one more,” over and over again. “Cross Justice” will not disappoint the Patterson readers!

Thirty-five years after leaving his childhood home, Alex Cross returns, for two reasons. One, to recover from a horrific ordeal, and, two, to help his cousin Stefan who has been accused of a horrific murder.

Ghosts of the past begin haunting Alex, though, and as the story unfolds it is becoming more apparent that those ghosts just might not have left town. Despite the fact that someone seems to want Alex and his family to leave town, Alex and his wife, Bree, dig in their heals and go after the truth. The evidence against Alex’s cousin just doesn’t add up, and Alex’s other cousin, Naomi, who is defending Stefan, needs all the help she can get.

“Cross Justice” is fast-paced and builds up to an unexpected conclusion as all the ghosts come home to rest. Get ready for some all day or late night reading.
