Publisher's Summary

Cross and his strange but multi-talented crew together form one of the most ruthless and efficient hired guns the world has known. In this first appearance in a novel, they take on an elusive serial killer who no one has ever seen. This savage murderer is leaving a trail of eviscerated bodies all over the world.
Despite knowing the Cross team as ultimate mercenaries, a shadowy team of government operatives hires them to track and capture - but not kill - this elusive hunter, When a pattern is finally deduced in the seemingly random strikes, the Cross crew devises an elaborate plan that will put their leader directly into the creature's path.

What the Critics Say

"Vachss effectively channels Predator and Rambo in this heated blend of fantasy and machismo in the urban jungle." (Publishers Weekly)

What a mess

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I can't think of anyone who would enjoy this story. It really is nothing more than a collection of short stories that have the same characters. There is no continuity. The epilogue has nothing to do with the rest of the book.


Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Phil Gigante did a fine job. He is just as good as always.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The overriding reaction I had was confusion. This book is very hard to follow.


Any additional comments?

This book had some great suspense. Especially the parts that took place in the prison. But it is so disjointed that it is almost impossible to follow. It really seems that it is just a collection of short stories. Too bad because Cross seems like a character with potential, that never gets a chance to develop.
