Another thriller starring detective Alex Cross. This is the third one I have read.
I realized for the first time that Alex is supposed to be a black man.
I had assumed he was white, maybe because the author is a white man. Two
serial killers are involved. One on the west coast and one in the RTP area.
Most of the action takes place in NC especially in Durham and Chapel Hill.
The killers kidnap beautiful, smart girls and use them as sex slaves or kill them.
Cross’s niece is one of the victims. Cross falls in love with another victim
during the investigation.
Year Read: 2007
