Unfortunately, this is an abridgement, but it's still an exciting entry in the Alex Cross series. Patterson's villains are always excruciatingly evil!

A well-written, 19th century mystery in the manner of Anne Perry: suspenseful and conscious of 19th century sensibilities. Also, another delightfully strong female main character.
