Detective Alex Cross is being stalked by a psychotic genius, forced to play the deadliest game of his career. Cross’s family—his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children—have been ripped away. Terrified and desperate, Cross must give this mad man what he wants if he has any chance of saving the most important people in his life. The stakes have never been higher: What will Cross sacrifice to save the ones he loves?
For the past few installments in the Alex Cross series, I felt as if JP was just phoning it in. They were just blah. However with this one, JP totally knocked my socks off. There was so much intrigue, suspense, and Sunday was a psycho I won’t soon forget. The way he held the Cross’ family hostage and kept them immobilized was pure freaking genius.
Man, JP really put a lot of thought in it and, as a fan, I appreciate his creativity. This book reminded me why I fell in love with Alex Cross and why I stuck with JP when his storylines were faltering.
And on a final note, don’t mess with Nana. 🙂 Read the book and find out why.
