Soon he will have nothing and no one left.

Title: Cross My Heart
Author: James Patterson
In the press
"It's no mystery why James Patterson is the world's most popular thriller writer: his uncanny skill in creating living, breathing characters we truly feel for and seamless, lightning-fast plots. I do this for a living, and he still manages to keep me guessing from the first to last page. I've been a devoted Alex Cross fan for twenty years, when the first in the series appeared, and Cross My Heart proves that both author and his hero are at the top of their game. It's virtually a one-sitting read, and what a read it is: Get ready for sweaty palms and lost sleep – and prepare yourself for one of the most gripping endings of any thriller in recent memory. Simply put: Nobody does it better."
