To James Patterson.
How could you write this with no ending. Is it just to sell the next book. I am so annoyed.
The beauty of a book is getting to the end.
When will it be published?

Enjoyed the book but disappointed that it finished without a proper ending.
Means you have to wait for next installment.

I have read all of James Patterson's Alex Cross books, but this, quite frankly, defies belief. There is simply no ending. It's not a cliffhanger - it just doesn't end. If this book had been written by an unknown writer it would have never seen the light of day and that is the acid test. If it does not stand up as an excellent read without a famous author then it shouldn't be published. Mr Patterson you have sold out and cheated your readers. Shame on you.

What a disappointing end, absolutely amazed at the dreadful ending. I have read all of the cross books and the majority of his other books which I have stopped buying as Patterson has gone from quality to quantity. Have decided that this will be the last cross book that I buy, I do not like being manipulated into buying the next cross book because cross my heart did not have a finish in the true sence but seems to end three quarters of the way through. Shame on you james paterson

Having read every book written by the author and enjoyed them all to varying degrees I was angered when I came to the final page of this book to discover no ending whatsoever. Mr Patterson has let not only his followers down he has gone down in my estimation having tried to ensure future sales by creating a follow on to this story. I received the book in hard back as a xmas present from my daughter and feel she wasted her hard earned savings on this. May not purchase anything further produced by Mr Patterson

TOP 50 REVIEWERon 26 November 2013
"Cross My Heart" by James Patterson is new installment in popular Alex Cross thriller series and although being the twenty-first novel in the series, the author still manages to make adventures of his popular hero both thrilling and exciting.

However there are some surprises here because what the author has done this time, in order to refresh the series, is that he decided to turn the tables and have a killer hunting on Alex Cross instead of the usual roles.

Reader will meet a psychopathic serial murderer named Thierry Mulch, man exceptionally skilled at hiding evidence who believes being able to commit perfect crimes and never be caught.
But as is the case with all multiple killers who somehow actually want to be caught, he even participates in seminars that were organized on University where committed crimes are discussed.
Moreover killer is offended that known Detective Cross has never tried to solve any of his crimes so he decides to give him an extra incentive to do so - he will start hunting both Cross and his family and soon he will succeed in threatening much what is important in Cross life...

James Patterson always delivered large amount of violence to his fans but with this one he went even one step ahead showing very explicitly extreme violence that might not be well received by all readers.
With turning the usual Detective-villain paradigm in his thrillers, the author definitely manages to breathe new life to the series and to the main character, and the perfect killer character Patterson invented in this novel is truly scary opponent because of his methods that any police officer wouldn't want to meet in real life.

What will perhaps be a bit controversial is the novel's end, which will probably be met with delight from some, for others suspense will be further increased and some readers will be probably disappointed, however I leave the decision to each reader not wanting to give you even the slightest hint not to spoil you the charm of reading.

I believe that the author and his main character needs no introduction, the number of published novels and its popularity speaks for itself, therefore this book as all previously released is a real page turner full of twists and tension perfect for fans of thrillers.

Therefore, given the above-mentioned reasons and the fact that this novel brought innovative change of roles, a new Alex Cross novel can be fully recommended.

The book simply stops "mid story" and the reader is presumably supposed to buy the next book to see what happens. It should be made clear to purchasers that this is only part 1 of an ongoing story before they waste their time and money.
