In the latest novel of the series, the author raises the stakes to their highest level, ever, when Alex Cross becomes the obsession of a genius of menace set on proving that he is the greatest mind in the history of crime.

One of the better Alex Cross books in recent years. Bree Stone is tasked with solving two baby kidnappings while Alex and John Sampson work on a mass shooting at a massage parlor (whorehouse), where a famous local football player is among the dead. Tipped off by a man stalking Alex and his family, they find out this is the third instance of these crimes, and have a definitive timetable for catching the culprit. Meanwhile, the man and his partner plan to inflict the worst sort of sadistic torture on Alex. Do not be fooled by the lower ratings on this book, which are dissatisfaction for a cliffhanger ending.

Alex Cross and his wife, Bree, have a lot going on in this book. With the murder rate in D.C. souring out of control, they are both chasing killers by day, then dealing with the kids and a remodel at home by night. When they start hunting a baby kidnapper/killer, the job consumes them. Unfortunately, while Alex isn't paying attention, a vicious psycho named Marcus Sunday is working his way into Alex's life, intent on destroying everything he holds dear. This book is face-paced and action-packed until the last page, where it ends abruptly in the middle of the story! Even though the Alex Cross books are a series, and an open ending is typical, this is still not a nice thing for an author to do. I will have to grab the next book to find out what happens to Alex's family. ( )

Book description
Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart: nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

When the ones Cross loves are in danger, he will do anything to protect them. But if he does anything to protect them, they will die.
