Kill Alex CrossPaperback - 2012
The President's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark.
A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced.
As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes-one that may alter the fate of the entire country. Kill Alex Cross is fast, exciting, and tightly wound, full of "fast-and-furious action" ( Washington Post ).
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
A very good Alex Cross story by Patterson in which he where the president's children have been kidnapped from a private school. He is originally kept out of the investigation, but is then brought in to help the FBI and the story weaves around from there.
An interesting sub-plot having to do with Middle Eastern terrorists leads to some mis-direction in the story.
I know that the next book in the Alex Cross series will be a continuation? from this one because there is one unresolved part that has been set up by the ending of this book. A good, fast read.

A few months after I hunted a vicious killer named the Tiger halfway around the world, I began to think seriously about a book I had been wanting to write for years. I even had the title for it: Trial. The previous book I'd written was about the role of forensic psychology in the capture of the serial killer gary Soneji. Trial would be very different, and in some ways even more terrifying
