I can’t wait for … Target Alex Cross by James Patterson (Can’t-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday)


Can’t- Wait Wednesday is a meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we are excited about that we have yet to read. The book I my husband can’t wait to read this week is:

A leader has fallen, and the procession route from Capitol Hill to the White House is lined with hundreds of thousands of mourners. None feel the loss of a President more keenly than Alex Cross, who has devoted his life to the public good. 


A sniper’s bullet strikes a target in the heart of DC. Alex Cross’s wife, Bree Stone, newly elevated chief of DC detectives, faces an ultimatum: solve the case, or lose the position for which she’s worked her entire career. The Secret Service and the FBI deploy as well in the race to find the shooter. Alex is tasked by the new President to take a personal role with the FBI, leading an investigation unprecedented in scale and scope. 


Alex has a horrible premonition: is the sniper’s strike only the beginning of a larger attack on the nation? It isn’t long before his fears explode into life, and the nation plunges into a full-blown Constitutional crisis. His ingenuity, his training, and his capacity for battle are tested beyond limits in the most far-reaching and urgently consequential case of his life. As the rule of law is shattered by chaos, and Alex fights to isolate a suspect, Alex’s loyalty may be the biggest danger of all.

My husband, Kevin, is probably one of Alex Cross’ biggest fans. He started the series in 2015 and he flew through the 25 books. He is also not the biggest reader, so this shows his love for the series. Hopefully he will enjoy this novel, that was released on Monday, as much as the previous ones!

  1. It’s been ages since I last read an Alex Cross novel. I was addicted to them for awhile there. 🙂 I hope you love this one! Have a great week!

  2. I loved the first few of the books of the series and then it became too repetitive. I loved how these books worked so well as stand alones as well.
