It’s books like this one that make me want to dig deeper into my own writings. Anyone whom is a Patterson Fan knows the short chapters practically drive the story and reel you in fast. You always want to know whats around that next corner. In this book Alex Cross goes back to his home town where his mom and dad died. It’s the first time he has been back in over 30 years. He is in town to help his Niece look into their cousin’s murder trial. Cross agrees to help but said he will do it objectively working for the victim and if the evidence proves his cousin innocent then so be it. Otherwise he will fight for the justice of the victim. Both Cross and his niece both begin to see that the deck has been stacked and their cousin is being railroaded. Meanwhile in a couple states over there are a strange trail of other murders that are starting to pile up and in the process of following clues Alex stumbles upon one of the most important finds of his life. I will not give this story away because it deserves your attention. It has the usually making of a typical Alex Cross novel with a little more action and mystery. I hope you enjoy. – Norman LaVelle
The toughest cases are the ones that hit close to home.
When his cousin is accused of a heinous crime, Alex Cross returns to his North Carolina hometown for the first time in over three decades. As he tries to prove his cousin’s innocence in a town where everyone seems to be on the take, Cross unearths a family secret that forces him to question everything he’s ever known.
Chasing a ghost he believed was long dead, Cross gets pulled into a case that has local cops scratching their heads and needing his help: a grisly string of socialite murders. Now he’s hot on the trail of both a brutal killer, and the truth about his own past–and the answers he finds might be fatal.
