Merry Christmas, Alex Cross (Alex Cross #19)

by James Patterson

It’s Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross is at home with his family decorating the tree when he receives a call that pauses all celebration. On the other side of Washington, Henry Fowler, a  a hard-nosed corporate lawyer turned small-time drug dealer, is holding his children, his ex-wife, her new husband and a neighbour to ransom. High, and armed, he is refusing to deal with the police. As an expert in hostage situations, Alex has been called in to try and save a potential massacre.  At the same time, an international terrorist has planned a horrifying attack that will strike the heart of the Western world on the most important day of the year – Christmas Day.

Jame Patterson is the world’s bestselling thriller writer, and this book does not disappoint. It is unrelenting and hair-raising, and will keep you on the edge of your seat this holiday season.
