Great book if you are looking for a simple fast read. I always picture Morgan Freeman for James patterson charactor, Alex Cross. It just fits so well. Quick book that made me want to read the rest of the series!
In this Alex Cross tale Washington DC is terrorized by a killer who stages elaborate murders in front of other people. When a second murder occurs there are fears of a copy cat. Alex finds himself drawn back into the police department to help solve the crimes. Adding to the mystery Alex's old nemesis Kyle Craig finds a way to escape from the maximum security prison where he has been incarcerated. Is he part of the crime spree? The blatant murders continue as the frustrated Alex seeks to find a common denominator and stop the killer or jillers before the violence hits his own family. A really good fast moving story with yet another surprise ending.
Always look to the Alex Cross books for a quick read. Formula writing, but readable.
I always look forward to Alex Cross adventures.....this one was as good as expected/hoped for.
One of his best and this book leads you to the next one?
