Detective Alex Cross's world is crashing down around him.

Hunted like prey, his predator is preparing for the kill.

Alex Cross has devoted his life to protecting others from the worst people the world has to offer. His only refuge from the horrors of his job is his family - and his enemies know it.

He's never faced a foe like this before. One by one, everyone he loves is being taken from him. If he can't find out how, he'll soon have no-one - and nothing - left...

Praise for Cross My Heart

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, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series

James Patterson is The Boss. End of.

IAN RANKIN, bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus series

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

Alex Cross is one of the best-written heroes in American fiction, and each Cross novel further defines what it means to be a professional, a husband, a father, and above all, a man. Congratulations to James Patterson on twenty years of Alex Cross - both of you only get better and better.

LISA SCOTTOLINE

Alex Cross is a legend. He has thrilled us and kept us on the edge of our seat for twenty years now.

HARLAN COBEN

Patterson boils a scene down to the single, telling detail, the element that defines a character or moves a plot along. It's what fires off the movie projector in the reader's mind.

MICHAEL CONNELLY

Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried... there's no stopping his imagination.

NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Patterson is in a class by himself.
