MY THOUGHTS: This is book 24 of 25. Almost done with this series. This has been a personal challenge for me, to read the whole Alex Cross series. Every book starting at 1 through 24 has been rated a 5 by me. All of James Patterson's books are great reads. If you haven't read one, pick one up and you will be sitting on the edge of your seat, and you can't seem to put the book down for any amount of time. Cross The Line is full of suspense and murder for Alex to figure out. But they have to did deep for all the clues. This one also puts a strain on Alex's and Bree's marriage. Will Alex and Bree discover who is behind this? Can their marriage survive? I give this book 5.....
This book is for 1 of my reading challenges......
