Merry Christmas Alex Cross, the nineteenth novel in James Patterson’s bestselling Alex Cross series was released Monday! If you don’t know, here’s a quick sum of the plot: Alex Cross is an African American detective and psychologist, and in this latest adventure, he’s called away from his family on Christmas Eve to help save another family trapped in a horrific hostage crisis. The hardcover version is set to be over 400 pages, but the paperback version is only 101 pages, the smallest Alex Cross book yet.
So far, the new book has received mostly positive fan reactions from the chapters Patterson has posted on his website. Morgan Freeman played Alex Cross in two movies: 1997’s Kiss The Girls and 2001’s Along Came a Spider. More recently, Tyler Perry took over the role and his film Alex Cross can be seen in theaters now. Alex Cross fans get ready to hit the bookstores! This is rumored to be one of the last books in the series!
