Overview

In all of Alex Cross's years with Homicide, Washington, DC, has never been more dangerous.

After shots pierce the tranquil nighttime calm of Rock Creek Park, a man is dead: what looks at first like road rage might be something much more sinister. But Alex has only just begun asking questions when he's called across town to investigate a new murder, one that hits close to home: Washington's own chief of detectives. And Alex's former boss, beloved mentor of Alex's wife, Bree.

Now there's a killer on the loose, a long list of possible suspects, a city in panic, and nobody in charge of the besieged police force.
Until Bree gets tapped for the job.

As Bree scrambles to find her footing and close two high-profile cases, new violence stuns the capital. What should be a time for her to rely on Alex for support and cooperation is instead a moment of crisis in their marriage as well as their city when their investigative instincts clash and their relationship reaches a breaking point.

And the fiendish mind behind all the violence has appointed himself judge, jury, and executioner, with a terrifying master plan he's only begun to put in motion. To beat him at his own game, Alex and Bree must take the law back into their own hands before he puts them both out of commission...permanently.

I love James Patterson but his stories are always the same. Nothing bad ever really happens to Alex Cross anymore and the end with Nana mama ..it just seems unrealistic. It was an OK read.

Outstanding as usual, with multiple stories that all come together in a very interesting investigative process with a great ending that you feel will happen but you thought is forgotten but isn't.

I have been a James Patterson fan for years, since the first cross novel. Each one us getting weaker. This was awful. I'm one that will read a book in a night, I've never taken so long to read a book. It was partial hope it would get better, partially because I paid for it. Kind of like forcing down a meal that tastes bad because you already paid for it. Two many characters, too many issues flip flopping all over. Huge disappointment, I hate to see one of my favorite writers starting the publish a book a week once they have readers hooked by other books they wrote that were great. You can do better James Patterson, take a mental break from writing.

Enjoyed the whole book and was thrilled to see more good things happen to the Cross family for a change. Although the read was action packed it was not as fast paced as the Cross series usually is. Really enjoyed this book.

Alex and Bree find themselves in uncharted territory when she becomes his boss as Chief of Detectives. When her mentor is killed, Alex is offered the job, turns it down and Bree is assigned the task. There are multiple killings happening and it is up to Alex, Sampson and at times Bree to investigate what really happened. There is someone shooting people for driving infractions; a group of what appear to be vigilantes killing illegal drug suppliers and human traffickers, just to name a few on their target list, along with the unsolved murder of Tommy McGrath, a DC Metro Police Officer who had been the COD at the time of his death. Bree struggles with her new role and she and Alex have a few disagreements on the status of the cases. Alex gets helped by his former FBI pal, Ned Mahoney and they both strive to solve the vigilante case. The book had some good twists and turns and kept me more than entertained. The ending was a nice surprise, especially for Nana Mama.
