Good story until the end. KIND OF FEEL RIPPED OFF AND LEFT HANGING AT THE END! Read The Trial and really enjoyed that actually had an ending. If other Bookshots end like this I am not buying another one.

I absolutely love his books, but, these shortened ones, are just too short. I like the longer more detailed books better.

It was really good, if there is a continuance in a future book. If this is it, then it SUCKS! It left you wanting more, a conclusion. Hope that they will be!

The story is good, but leaves the reader hanging and wondering what happens next. Alex's arrest? What about John's injury? Too many loose ends

Cross Kill is a novella in the popular Alex Cross series by prolific American author, James Patterson. It is released under the BookShots: stories at the speed of life banner, and at a mere 113 pages, it is intended to be a one-sitting read. Alex and his best friend and colleague, John Sampson are working the free Cafeteria at St Anthony of Padua Catholic School when shots ring out. There are two victims in the kitchen, and soon, a third: Sampson has a bullet in his skull. Alex sees the shooter. It’s a man whom he watched die ten years earlier: Garry Soneji. He could never forget this man: he’s sure it is Soneji he has seen. Amid scepticism from colleagues, Alex tries to track down the killer. Several tantalising appearances, messages and even a film clip drive Alex on. Visits to Soneji’s family, an exhumation and some cyber-detection all form part of the investigation. Some of Alex’s decisions are less than prudent, coloured, perhaps, by his concern for his best friend, or perhaps by a drug that is inserted rather clumsily into the plot. There’s a slight continuity problem with the mention of Alex’s father that contradicts the conclusion of the previous novel, Cross Justice. And yet another cliff hanger ending that might annoy even die-hard Alex Cross fans. A fast-paced, full of action, quick read.

Alex Cross and Sampson spend a morning at a church serving breakfast to unfortunate families when a gunman starts shooting and Alex and Sampson are hit. Alex is shocked when he sees the gunman and comes face to face with what he believes is Gary Soneji, his past nemesis who is believed dead for the past 10 years. Sampson is severely wounded and Alex is left stunned. Between hunting to find Soneji and the trail left behind by his followers, and being by his injured friends bedside, Alex is hard pressed for a minute to himself. His wife, Bree, was pretty unlikable still in this book and am not a fan of hers. The ending was abrupt and not at all what one would expect from a Bookshot. They are supposed to be short stories that you can read in a couple of hours and put down with no other thought. This one was not. I already read the most recent Alex Cross book and it got confusing because one of the events mentioned in this book as having already happened, was the ending of the book I had just read. Not a fan of that.

Awesome book right it is a cliff hanger and still awesome also loved the fact that John didn't die he is needed for Alex to defend himself and he didn't do anything wrong and they should just let him go and deal with the mess dealing with Gary and the idiots who prop up this idiot who is still dead and gone and one of these idiots shot John and one of these idiots tried to kill him and his wife more than once so yes this is great and the end will be good can't wait to read the end of this story.
