I, ALEX CROSS: PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

A BINGLE BELLS BOOK CHOICE
[<span class=
A GREAT GIFT FOR THE
BOOK LOVER ON YOUR LIST!


GIVEAWAY ENDED
I, ALEX CROSS

BY JAMES PATTERSON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
You can't run


Detective Alex Cross is pulled out of a family celebration and given the awful news that a beloved relative has been found brutally murdered. Alex vows to hunt down the killer, and soon learns that she was mixed up in one of Washington's wildest scenes. And she was not this killer's only victim.

You can't hide

The hunt for her murderer leads Alex and his girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, to a place where every fantasy is possible, if you have the credentials to get in. Alex and Bree are soon facing down some very important, very protected, very dangerous people in levels of society where only one thing is certain--they will do anything to keep their secrets safe.

Alex Cross is your only hope to stay alive

As Alex closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable--a revelation that could rock the entire world. With the unstoppable action, unforeseeable twists, and edge-of-your-seat suspense that only a James Patterson thriller delivers, I, Alex Cross is the master of suspense at his sharpest and best.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


The subject of a recent Time magazine feature called, "The Man Who Can't Miss," James Patterson is the bestselling author of the past year, bar none, with more than 16 million books sold in North America alone. In 2007, one of every 15 hardcover fiction books sold was a Patterson title. In total, James's books have sold an estimated 150 million copies worldwide. He is the first author to have #1 new titles simultaneously on The New York Times adult and children's lists and is the only author to have five new hardcover novels debut at #1 on the list in one year — a record-breaking feat he’s accomplished every year since 2005. To date, James Patterson has had nineteen consecutive #1 New York Times Bestselling Novels, and holds the New York Times record for most bestselling titles by a single author (40 total).

Patterson is a champion of reading and the founder of the PageTurner awards, which seek to spread the excitement and joy of books and reading in the United States. James's first foray into family fiction, the critically acclaimed Maximum Ride series, debuted on the New York Times list at #1 and remained there for 12 straight weeks. The series has so far made appearances on The New York Times bestsellers lists 87 times, proving that kids of all ages love page turners.

Patterson is the creator of the #1 new detective series of the past dozen years, featuring "Alex Cross" and including the Hollywood-adapted "Along Came a Spider" and "Kiss the Girls," starring Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman. He is also the creator of the #1 new detective series of the past five years, featuring Lindsay Boxer and the other members of the Women's Murder Club, from which the ABC television drama series is adapted. He has authored books behind six films on the Hollywood fast-track, including the upcoming Maximum Ride movie from Avi Arad, the producer of X-Men and Spiderman. Most recently, New Regency Pictures has optioned The Dangerous Days of Daniel X, James’s newest family Pageturner due out in July of 2008.

He is the author of novels — from The Thomas Berryman Number (1976) to Honeymoon (2005) — that have won awards including the Edgar, the BCA Mystery Guild's Thriller of the Year, the International Thriller of the Year award, and the Reader’s Digest Reader’s Choice Award.

One of Forbes magazine's Celebrity 100, James appeared as a guest star on the popular FOX TV show "The Simpsons" in March, 2007.

Oops...this should be included in my first comment, and should not be a separate entry.
From the website, Patterson's friend Marshall Kamp said success had not changed him. Also, the content of his books is surprising if you know him.

I love to read books by James Patterson, he is such a great writer. I have already read Alex Cross's Trial and it was a really awesome read. His next book out after this one is Witch and Wizard. I am not quite sure about this one. I am not much on those sorts of things. But I am sure it will be another great book by him.

I liked checking out the Patterson website. It looks like the next Alex Cross book, Worst Case, comes out next Feb. That's quick! And I always think it's cool that we can download so many things to give them a try. He's offering book one of Witche and Wizard as an e-book to get us hooked, no doubt! (and looks like it's worth a read too!)
Thanks, would love to win I, Alex Cross!

Thanks for the heads up, Karen. The next book coming up is Witch and Wizard. I lean more toward books that James Patterson soley writes, but I have enjoyed several of the books that have come out with other authors. I actually frequent his site, but I had never gone to his link to readkiddoread.com which is centered around finding great works to get children reading. I love it! I am definitely heading back for ideas for my son and nephew!

Thanks for the chance!

The next James Patterson book to come out after this one is Witch and Wizard. Patterson also says in the video on his home page that he will have to kill off Alex Cross if we don't buy this book. He also says that it is very good.
