When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man--the African warlord known as the Tiger. Just when the detectives think they're closing in on the elusive murderer, the Tiger disappears into thin air. Tracking him to Africa, Alex knows that he must follow. Alone.

From the author Time magazine has called 'the man who can't miss,' CROSS COUNTRY is the most heart-stopping, speed-charged, electrifying Alex Cross thriller yet.

As this story started to develop I was not quite buying into it, at least at first, especially when the backdrop moved to Africa. But I was quickly drawn into the story. A big part of the story teller's job was providing just enough background informatioj related to the plight of the African people to ensure the plot made sense. Normally I do not like a history lesson when I read a fiction, but in this case it was not only necessary, but very well executed. I was both shocked and intrigued by the description of the conditions the African people portrayed in the book, are forced to endure just to survive. The author had me on the edge and very anxious on more than one occasion. Some scenes were so intense that at times I almost had to pull over to the side of the road to keep from punching my dashboard. I can't quite give it a 5 star rating since it did get a bit tedious, but it is for sure my favorite book from this author and the best of the Cross series. A very good read.
