    Does anyone know where little Alex came from? In the book “Cross” His wife is killed when Jannie is 6 months old, then 7 to 10 years later little Alex is mentioned. No second wife or even a girlfriend is mentioned.

      I stopped reading these books a few years ago – but if memory serves me correct you are talking about Ali, who is Alex Cross Jr. This was the child they had with Christine. There was big custody battles over it and all that.

      Little Alex came from his girlfriend Christine who was kidnapped while they (his family and the girlfriend Christine) were in Bermuda vacationing. Little did he know that she was pregnant for him when she was kidnapped. She had the baby while in captivity for 10 months.

    I dont think he’s written half thge books he’s supposed to have. I’m sure that he has two or three writers and he gives them a start on a story and then leaves them to it.
    I read once that he spends a lot of time down South playing golf with D.Trump so I’m sure that doesn’t leave him much time for writing but plenty for going to the bank.

    Mary, Mary … is the peak of the Alex Cross novels.

    Cross Country.. I don’t think Patterson even wrote that one.

    the latest book, no one is mentioning that it didn’t finish the story.. a total gimmick to get readers to buy the next one. And its not a cliff hanger. its simply Unfinished…. And I like Alex Cross.

      I’m reading Cross Country right now and it is most definitely written by James Patterson. 🙂 and the part you read is a preview, his book hasn’t been published yet!!
