Today was the Local Book Blogger Meet Up and its been awhile since I have seen Avis and Linda. Its actually been since we got back from NYC/BEA. I actually saw Donna and Tina since our trip. It was great to see everyone and to be back in a routine of meeting up again.
As we sipped our assorted drinks (hot chocolate and a cold apple & strawberry drink for me, I am not sure what everyone else had) we talked about our trip, about BEA, we got Avis’s feedback about BBC that she went to, spoke about the next BEA, life and of course books.
I managed to pass on a few books to Tina (which I know she loved) along with a few magazines, passed on two to Linda and one to Avis. I love sharing books with everyone.
I managed to come home with only one book and its this one:
ABOUT THE BOOK
Wedding bells ring
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?
A murderer returns
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.
Caught in a lethal cross fire
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. With a supercharged blend of action, deception, and suspense, Cross Fire is James Patterson”s most visceral and exciting Alex Cross novel ever.
I am really excited to read this one as I am a huge James Patterson fan. So check back in November for my review of this book.
See you guys in August!
