Summary

The sixth novel in the Alex Cross detective series. A series of meticulously planned bank robberies ends in murder, and detective Alex Cross must pit his wits against the bizarre and sadistic mastermind behind the crimes. Although torn between dedication to his job and commitment to his family, Cross cannot ignore the case, despite the risks he knows will come with hunting down a killer - and the heart-breaking cost. James Patterson's bestseller takes us from deep inside the crazy world of a psychopath's masquerade right to the heart of fiction's most brilliant detective, and is an explosive tale where mind games lead to violence and the slightest mistake will be punished with death.

Enjoyed this

Having become a fan of the Alex Cross books, I got this and Violets are blue together, pleased I did. They were fast paced and well narrated, made me what to hear more.
