This is a book with more than just a mystery to be solved but with a message for all Americans. Our Veterans need our constant support. So read this book and enjoy it but do not forget it's real message.

3.5 stars Detective Cross is a novella in the popular Alex Cross series by prolific American author, James Patterson. It apparently comes between the novella, Cross Kill and the full-length novel, The People vs Alex Cross. It is published under the BookShots: stories at the speed of life banner, and at a mere 131 pages, it is intended to be a one-sitting read. It is heavy on message, that being the poor treatment that America metes out to its war veterans. Detective Bree Stone has apparently been chosen by an anonymous caller to be told the location of the next bomb blast in Washington DC. And the next, and the next. The back-cover blurb begins “The suspect is your patient, Dr. Cross”, which is completely misleading. But it is a fast-paced tale with some clever detecting and an exciting climax. It does nothing at all to resolve the cliff-hanger that ended Cross Kill, but fills in nicely as fans await the next proper Alex Cross book.

This was a nice short read in the Alex Cross series. This was the first Bookshots I've read...and will probably be the last! (Other than the one other book I had already purchased.) While it was action packed and kept you interested, it wasn't worth the money. Once again, Alex Cross finds himself in the middle of a mystery and has been called in as a consultant on his wife's bombing case. There is lots of action and intrigue. But, I have to honest, I am falling out of love with James Patterson books. They are just too similar and not that well written.

Bree Stone is out enjoying an early morning jog when she gets a cell phone call that takes the whole city on a wild ride. A bomber is trying to get attention and uses Bree to get his message across. Alex steps in and consults on the case for Ned Mahoney, since he is still suspended with the DC Police Force. He is spending his time treating patients in his basement while awaiting his trial. The bomber uses different targets in the city and seems to be escalating in his threats. Although no one knows who he is, it becomes apparent that it has to do with funding for veterans and the proposed cutting of those funds by some senators. The bomber gets more and more bold as the time for the bill to pass becomes more and more in jeopardy. It did have quite a few twists and turns and a patient of Dr. Cross does play a role in this book. It was a good read and kept me quite intrigued until the end.
