James Patterson, in full James Brendan Patterson, Jr., is an American author, principally known for his thriller and suspense novels, whose prolific output and business savvy made him a ubiquitous presence on best-seller lists in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. By the early 1990s, Patterson had modified his approach to writing fiction, adopting a style characterized by unadorned prose, bite-sized chapters, and fast-paced streamlined plots. With more than 305 million copies of his 148 books in print, Patterson has the distinction of having been the top-selling fiction writer of the 2000s, according to Nielsen BookScan. He holds a Guinness World Record for being the first author to sell more than one million e-books. In 2005, after discovering that his son lacked an interest in reading, Patterson created the Maximum Ride series of science-fiction novels, aimed at young adults but designed to appeal to readers of all ages. Patterson hit the big-time with his novels about Alex Cross, a detective and psychologist in Washington, D.C., who tracks serial killers. Cross My Heart is the 21st novel in the Alex Cross series. Alex Cross has been a family man at heart. He loves his children, his grandmother, and his beautiful wife Brianna. Alex Cross has managed to stop serial killers and survive.
