Detective Alex Cross arrests renowned plastic surgeon Elijah Creem for sleeping with teenage girls. Now, his life ruined, Creem is out of jail, and he has made sure that no one will recognize him by giving himself a new face. A young woman is found hanging from a sixth floor window, and Alex is called to the scene. The victim recently gave birth, but the baby is nowhere to be found. Before Alex can begin searching for the missing newborn and killer, he is called to investigate a second crime. All of Washington, D.C. is in a panic, and when a third body is discovered, rumours of three serial killers send the city into an all out frenzy. Alex's investigations are going nowhere, and he is too focused on the cases to notice that someone has been watching him and will stop at nothing until he is dead.

Book 20 in the Alex Cross series

Book 20

While better than his latest efforts, this book felt like a cut and paste from early books. Two serial killers competing against each other, Detective Cross being set up by a villain, taking the law in his own hands, the grandmother (is she ever going to die?) always having the last word, etc.

The plot is typical Patterson. What makes the audiobook so enjoyable are the narrators . Michael Boatman (who does the voice of Alex Cross) is perfect.

Fast paced intrigue with an ending you could never guess.

The Audiobook CD book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

I listened to the audio book on my way to work and home and it was gripping to listen to the story. The readers who were telling the story were very entertaining, loved the Alex Cross voice. I really enjoy this book and I will be reading this book on vacation.

There is no doubt that the Alex Cross books are entertaining and page turners. This was a well written book, but perhaps I've read too many Alex Cross novels. There is a sameness that bleeds out some of the excitement. The book is good, but just not great. Very formulatic. I'd rate it a 3 on a scale from 1 to 5.
