Nana Mama's famous pecan pie is in the oven and the kids are hanging their favourite ornaments on the tree. Just as Alex's wife Bree emerges from the kitchen with a bowl of homemade eggnog, his phone rings with news that shatters the night: at a nearby home, a family has been taken hostage - and the situation is spiralling out of control fast. Alex rushes to the scene and confronts the unthinkable: a father is threatening to murder his own children and his ex-wife. Then just as the insanity peaks, a second horrific situation explodes - one that no one could have foreseen and that puts millions of people at risk. This is a red alert of the darkest kind, and Alex is forced to make a decision that could end as many lives as it saves - including his own. "Merry Christmas, Alex Cross" is James Patterson's most shocking "Alex Cross" novel yet: a breakneck-paced and heart-pounding adrenaline rush of a thriller.Read Less

This is probably the worst Alex Cross novel I've read to date, and I've read almost all of them. It had no depth and just seemed like two short stories tied together. Skip it!!

Alibris is AWESOME!
I had been looking for over a month for this book, to no avail. So I searched for it one day while shopping on Alibris, I found it and I ordered it! The description of the book said that the book was in good condition, but I believe that I got a brand new book, for less than retail price! I LOVE Alibris, and I shop here all the time. You never know what you could find. Just start searching!
