A killer with all the skills of a master detective has made Alex Cross the subject of his deranged "investigation."
In a Virginia penitentiary, Alex Cross and his partner, John Sampson, witness the execution of a killer they helped convict. Hours later, they are called to the scene of a copycat crime. A note signed "M" rests on the corpse. "You messed up big time, Dr. Cross."
Was an innocent man just put to death? Alex soon realizes he may have much to answer for, as "M" lures the detective out of the capital to the sites of multiple homicides, all marked with distressingly familiar details -- details that conjure up decades-old cases. Details that conjure up Cross family secrets. Details that make clear that M is after a prize so dear that -- were the killer to attain it -- Alex's heart would no longer have reason to beat.
This is one twisted nemesis that is after Alex Cross and his family, M has been tormenting Alex Cross for quite sometime and has really stepped up his twisted game , M is closing in fast on all of Alex’s loved ones. this tale does not disappoint, there are a few red herrings that are so well done that I continued to fall for them throughout the book. We see all of our beloved characters in this latest in the series, Nana Mama is sharp as ever with her wit and wisdom, Bree is a supportive partner and the children will have some issues in this installment. James Patterson delivered again for me with this book and a bit of a cliffhanger.
