Publisher's Summary

Just when Alex Cross thought his life was calming down into a routine of patients and therapy sessions, he finds himself back in the game - this time to catch a criminal mastermind like no other. A spate of elaborate murders in Washington, D.C., have the whole East Coast on edge. They are like nothing Alex and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever seen. With each murder, the case becomes increasingly complex. There's only one thing Alex knows: the killer adores an audience. As victims are made into gruesome spectacles citywide, inducing a media hysteria, it becomes clear to Alex that the man he's after is a genius of terror - and he's after fame. The killer has the whole city by its strings. And he'll stop at nothing to become the most terrifying star that Washington, D.C., has ever seen.

Another winner!

Patterson is a master of this genre. His characters are creepy and his plots are very interesting. I think he was a bit ambitious in trying to bring in two serial killers in this book and in taking the plot in so many directions almost simultaneously, however he somehow pulls it together. Though I would have preferred he explain more about the why's, it's still an interesting romp with one of the best super-hero detective/therapists around - the famous Alex Cross.

Too much like a movie

Bottom line... the details are too unlikely to happen even in today's society... If you like murder/crime books and just want to be entertained then you may like it. I like books and movies but I consider reading (or listening to a book) a little more of an intellectual experience than watching a movie and for that reason I hold a book up to a slightly higher standard. The Overlook by Connelly is a better read, just as entertaining without having to dumb yourself down to get into it.
