Target Alex Cross 

Target Alex Cross 
~Patterson, James 
TARGET: HEAD OF STATE
 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. 
TARGET: UNITED STATES CABINET
 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. 
TARGET: ALEX CROSS 
 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.
