Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, D.C., Police Department when an unknown man gunned down his wife in front of him. But his desire for vengeance was placed on hold as he raised his children himself.
The most terrifying Cross ever….
Years later, Alex leaves the FBI to work as a full-time psychologist. His life finally feels like it’s in order…until Cross’s former partner, John Sampson, gives him a chilling phone call. Sampson is tracking a Georgetown serial rapist whose brutal modus operandi includes threatening his victims with terrifying photos. Now Cross and Sampson need the help of the rape victims to stop the predator, but the women refuse to talk.
The most emotional Cross ever….
When the case triggers a connection to his wife’s death, Alex may finally have a chance to catch the killer. Is this a chance for justice at long last? Or the culminating scene in his own deadly obsession?
From the man USA Today has called the “master of the genre”, Cross is the high-velocity thriller James Patterson’s fans have waited years for.
