Alex Cross’s niece, Naomi, is missing. Cross fears the disappearance could be linked to a string of recent abductions and murders. Two brilliant and twisted killers, operating on opposite sides of the country, are collaborating and competing, encouraging each other to perpetrate increasingly horrific crimes.
Cross must hunt down these two brutal masterminds – not only to rescue his niece, but also to save the lives of the many others still in danger…
I had previously read these books years ago, way before I even thought leaving a book review was something important.
So after being approved to read them I dived right in. Getting to know the wonderful Alex Cross all over again has been great, but I have to admit I like the more mature Alex Cross in his later books. He's the sort of detective if you were ever to need a crime solving you would like to think it would be by a real life Alex Cross.
I've secretly wanted over years, Alex Cross, Michael Bennett and Lyndsay Boxer to work a case together. How awesome would that be.
I love the short chapters is JP's books, as it makes it easy to say just one more chapter, just one more chapter. You fly through these books no problem. The stories, the cases, the personal lives of the characters really draw you in to each page.
This book like most of his others are brilliant. I would recommend anyone who likes a good crime thriller to read this series. And to make things even better I would start right at the beginning, that way you would have over 20 books to get stuck into. And it's great fun following Alex on his life journey.
