Daily Express

I was completely swept along by it. It was absolutely fantastic: I romped through it. It is wonderfully-well and scarily described. There is a James Bond quality. It was inspired. Cross Country has an amazing sense of speed, there's a really brilliant tension in the plot. You really believe in Alex Cross.
You're just completely engrossed in it from start to finish. Absolutely incredible. Taking [Cross] into Africa is a masterstroke. The story is unrelentingly exciting.
