Cross the Line is well written, and the plot moves at a very nice pace. I found the dialogue in Cross the Line to be a step above Cross Hairs. The dialogue in this book is more organized and offers more humor. I really enjoyed the way the characters were written, also. All the characters felt real, and there was just the right balance of humor and tension between them.
Cross the line is a combination thriller, mystery, and sports story. I must admit that I am not a football fan, but I still found this book enjoyable. There are enough sports moments to set the tone, but not so many that they take away from the story. The plot is very exciting and riveting, and you will be hooked no matter how familiar you are with football.
The story is told in short chapters and is very easy to digest. Cross the line is a fun book that doesn't take itself to seriously. Some of the events that happen are a bit "out there", and I think that really adds to the enjoyment factor. This book is definitely entertaining! Jack Patterson's books are really easy to sit back and read. He takes you on an enjoyable ride, and you'll have a hard time putting the book down. I recommend Cross the Line to anyone looking for a fun and easy read!
Being from the UK however, and not totally familiar with US sports or the enthusiasm frequently displayed by the supporters of the NFL a little of the story was perhaps lost in translation for me although the plots were understood well enough although not 100% my cup of tea as I find heroes a little tiresome on occasions, more so when I cannot relate to them so well. This is something I find when reading some novels that are principally for the US market and not the authors fault in any way.
A mixture of suspense, thriller and mystery in one little bundle makes it all worthwhile with a kidnapping that would tear any normal person in two under the circumstances.
All in all, it is a step in the right direction from JP and I will continue to read his books, even if it is just to see how he is progressing (in my eyes at any rate).
I would give 4 stars as I did with "Cross Hairs" only because I cannot give it 4.5, hopefully the next one will bump it up to a full house.
The plot was well written, it goes in a nice pace and the book has more to it than what you expect in most thriller novels. It has great moments, such as humorous lines that people can easily relate to. Everything felt real and it really was a great read.
This time we have Cal Murphy, a sports-writer, with photographer Kelly Mendoza thrown into an adventure ride that runs on full throttle. An NFL quarterback's son is kidnapped; the ransom? No, not money, but a demand for the star quarterback to throw a game. And what a game... Nothing less than the Superbowl.
With good humor thrown into the dialog, decent characters, and lots of action and commotion, you can't go too far wrong with this novel. This one is fast paced, so hold on to yours hats!

Bit boring at times and silly ending,to far fetched ,but you have to keep reading anyway ... Cc c c.Published 1 month ago by r bakehouse
Not the most serious book that I have read but once you start you cannot put it down.
The story while good seems a bit far fetched but compelling reading to the end.
If you still believe in Father Christmas and the Tooth Fairy, then this is the book for you. The whole plot revolves around the kidnap of the young son of the Seattle Seahawks star... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Adelphi1982
