This book was another classic JP book. Alex cross returns and this time, hes working for the FBI. He immediately gets put onto a case to catch a man known as 'The Wolf' after some women get kidnapped. He has to face being the new guy and trying to get the case solve. Amidst this, his ex, Christine is back and she wants to take Little Alex away.
Its more slow paced than other Alex Cross books, but does get more interesting and picks up as the book continues. You'll enjoy it if you are an Alex Cross fan. ( )

Behind this depraved scheme stands a shadowy figure known only as The Wolf, a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime. With Alex's personal life in chaos because of his ex-fiancee's return and with the FBI's caution testing his patience, Alex has to go out on his own.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446610224, Mass Market Paperback)

Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever encountered - a predator known only as "the Wolf. "Alex Cross's first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks as if a shadowy figure called the Wolf - a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organize crime - is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves. Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home too. His ex-fiancee, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life - and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.
