Train on Thursday: Cross Fire, James Patterson

I travel with public transport on a regular base. I always love to check out what other people read while traveling. When I get a chance I take a look if their book would be something for me.

Cross Fire James Patterson cover
Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and an underhanded lobbyist. Next, the elusive gunman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories--is the marksman a hero or a vigilante?
The case explodes, and the FBI assigns agent Max Siegel to the investigation. As Alex and Siegel battle over jurisdiction, the murders continue. It becomes clear that they are the work of a professional who has detailed knowledge of his victims' movements--information that only a Washington insider could possess.
As Alex contends with the sniper, Siegel, and the wedding, he receives a call from his deadliest adversary, Kyle Craig. The Mastermind is in D.C. and will not relent until he has eliminated Cross and his family for good.
The red letters caught my attention immediately. The woman was not looking up one moment and the only movement she made was turning pages. She was almost at the end and I guess it was exciting.
I did not have to think very long though if it would be a book for me. The simple answer to that question is YES. I love James Patterson and his style. I love detective books and his are simply on the top of that genre.

What books did you spot on the streets?
