It's a snowy Christmas Eve, and Detective Alex Cross is at home celebrating with his family. Nana Mama's famous pecan pie is in the oven, and the kids are hanging their favourite ornaments on the tree. Just as Alex's wife Bree emerges from the kitchen with a bowl of homemade eggnog, his phone rings with news that shatters the night: at a nearby home, a family has been taken hostage - and the situation is spiralling out of control fast. Alex rushes to the scene and confronts the unthinkable: a father is threatening to murder his own children and his ex-wife. Then, just as the insanity peaks, a second horrific situation explodes - one that no one could have foreseen, and that puts millions of people at risk...

Reading "Merry Christmas, Alex Cross," you will find drama, heartbreak, and even a few miracles along the way. You will be on the edge of your seat as Alex is forced to make the difficult decision of spending time with his family, or going out into the frosty Christmas Eve night to save some hostages or something.
Snuggle up with a hot cup of cocoa and read this book together with your kids, you won't regret it.

Basically this is two short stories held together by the fact that it is Christmas. Not much of a plot and the action was predictable.

The book is short and action is non-stop, but that's why it's hard to realize that there is very little plot. One would think that Detective Cross is the only profiler, psychologist, or detective working in DC or liaising with the FBI since he simply can't say "no" when they call him

It can be said that yes this is a rushed novel with not as much substance as most of his novels have had. It is on the other hand, a separate novel not a complete part of the series, although i dont quite know why since it is an alex cross novel.

I reallyi cannot believe people read this garbage, although it does have the most minimalist sentence structure possible? Which is probably why the only ones I've ever observed reading him in public were the lowest mental grade Boeing employees who believe inner-office gossip to be the endall and beall of life!

Another Patterson book that could be a B- movie.With his experience in writing books, he could have pulled this one together over the weekend! There were two incidents and both were resolved without too much intrigue. Also, the print was larger than normal so the 300+ pages could have dwindled down to 200+ quite easily. He's coasting on his reputation.

Garbage. The quality of Patterson's stories, whether written by himself or co-authored, has been deteriorating rapidly over the last few years. This is my LAST one!
