Another thrilling book by Patterson

In James Patterson's usual style, Cross Country is a thrilling, quick read. Alex Cross is once again chasing a scary serial kiler. This time though, the killer is from Africa, and he uses young refuge boys from Darfur to do his dirty work. Called the Tiger, this killer is as ruthless as any Alex has come across. Within a short period of time, three families in DC have died, including one of Alex's college sweethearts, and Alex decides the guy must be hunted down. When the Tiger goes back to Nigeria. Alex follows him in a chase that quickly turns deadly. As soon as he arrives, he is beaten, arrested, and thrown in jail by the authorities. As he digs deeper, it seems that the Tige has connections high up in the government, and it becomes clear that maybe they don't want this vicious kiler to be stopped.

The thing I liked most about this book, besides its fast pced easy to read format, was the insight it gave into the conditions of people in refuge camps in Africa. We don't often hear that much about the plight of the people who live there, and it really brought that into focus for me.
