Just when Alex Cross's life is calming down, he is drawn back into the game to confront a criminal mastermind like no other. The elaborate murders that have stunned Washington, DC, are the wildest that Alex Cross and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever seen. This maniac adores an audience, and stages his killings as spectacles in public settings. Alex is pursuing a genius of terror who has the whole city on edge as it waits for his next move. And the killer loves the attention, no doubt-he even sets up his own Web site and live video feed to trumpet his madness.
And in Colorado, another criminal mastermind is planning a triumphant return. From his supermaximum-security prison cell, Kyle Craig has plotted for years to have one chance at an impossible escape. If he has to join forces with DC's Audience Killer to get back at the man who put him in that cell--Alex Cross--all the better.
From the author Time magazine has called "the man who can't miss," Double Cross has the pulse-racing momentum and electrifying thrills that have made James Patterson a #1 bestselling storyteller all over the world.

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
Patterson offers the thirteenth in the mega-chiller escapades of former FBI Profiler Dr. Alex Cross, who is now in private psychiatric practice in Washington, D.C. This time Cross and his new girlfriend, Homicide Detective Brianna Stone, are stalking and being stalked by two grotesque serial killers, DCAK (ÒAudience KillerÓ), who wants his crimes staged and viewed by the public, and Òthe Mastermind,Ó a former FBI friend of Cross who has escaped from a maximum security prison. Cross is at the top of their hit lists. Peter J. Fernandez and Michael Stuhlbarg deftly manage the multiple characters in this thriller, carrying the listener through the various, and often confusing, layers, sliding over the plot holes and inconsistencies, and galloping to a breathtaking climax.
