Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A scandalous double homicide opens the psychological case files on Alex Cross....

When a glamorous socialite and high school principal are found murdered, lying half naked in a car, the shocking double homicide dominates tabloid headlines. Kay Willingham was a well-known philanthropist and ex-wife of the US vice president. Randall Christopher was a respected educator with political ambitions, as well as a wife and family.

Alex Cross knew both victims well. Especially Kay, who had been his patient once. And maybe more. Cross is left grieving, questioning who would want them dead and why.

While Cross' former Metro Homicide partner John Sampson tracks Christopher's final movements, Cross and FBI Special Agent Ned Mahoney travel to Alabama to investigate Kay's past. They discover that although Kay had many enemies, none of them had a full motive.

In a world of trouble, corruption and secrets, Cross is left facing a desperate choice between breaking a trust and losing his way....

Patterson makes a comeback

Im a big fan of james patterson but thought he'd lost his touch on a few recent books but this one is fantastic, I am so happy and recommend to all fans and generally too.

Not one I can recommend

Having read all of the Alex Cross series of books I feel that my enjoyment of them has begun to wane as the stories do seem to be a bit dull in the most recent offerings. Always difficult when you have a long term character to keep things fresh and interesting ( possible exception being Poirot where I feel the quality never dropped) but I think it’s time for me and Mr Cross to part company

Boring

Below average non-exciting story line. I stopped reading one jour before the ending. Great narration though
