Does He Ever Cross Your Mind?

Your favorite FBI agent-psychologist Alex Cross and his loyal partner in crime-solving, Ned Mahoney are back! Fasten your seatbelt for a wild ride.

He’s handsome, he’s brilliant, and he’s back! Jonesing for your favorite FBI agent-psychologist Alex Cross and his loyal partner in crime-solving, Ned Mahoney? Fasten your seatbelt for a wild ride. No one does it like James Patterson - the world’s #1 bestselling author of 28 Alex Cross novels and the Women’s Murder Club series is back. Deadly Cross, a new novel about a double homicide in the nation's capital, opens the psychological case files of Detective Alex Cross. Ready to put everything on pause and see if you can crack the case? Here are the facts, ma’am.

Who? Kay Willingham led a life as glamorous as it was public. She was a gorgeous Georgetown socialite, philanthropist, and the ex-wife of the vice president. Kay had many enemies, but all of them seemed to need her alive. The harder the investigators push, the more resistance they find when they leave behind the polite law offices and doctors' quarters of the nation’s capital. Alex Cross will need to use all his skills as a doctor, detective, and family man to prevent that resistance from turning lethal...again.

What? What was Kay Willingham doing parked in a Bentley convertible idling behind a D.C. private school, in the middle of the night, with the man who was the head of that school? And who shot them both, point blank?

Where? The shocking double homicide is blazed across the Internet, TV, newspapers – and across Alex Cross's mind. Kay had been his patient once…and maybe something more. John Sampson of D.C. Metro Police investigates the last movements of Christopher Randall, the educator killed along with Kay Willingham. Detective Alex Cross and FBI Special Agent Ned Mahoney find unanswered questions from Willingham's past, before she arrived and became known in D.C. society as someone who could make things happen. They travel to Alabama to investigate Kay's early years. There they find a world of trouble, corruption, and secrets, all of them closed to outsiders like Cross and Mahoney.
