Back cover …..
Alex Cross’s first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues perplexed. Across the country, men and women are kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappear completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it seems The Wolf is the master criminal behind this terrible trade and who is bringing a new reign of terror to organized crime.
Even as he admires the FBI’s vast resources, Alex is impatient with the Bureau’s clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out alone to track his new prey and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home, too. His ex-fiancée, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life –
My review …..
I’ve always like James Patterson. So I couldn’t wait to open up and dive in …..
book 9 in a 26 book series. (But they don’t need to be read in order)
Alex Cross is FBI agent (recently back) and the case he is on has both himself and his colleagues mystified. Both men and women are being kidnapped, and when no ransom or bodies appear, Alex realised that they aren’t being killed, they are in fact being auctioned off.
It’s a race against time to work out who and where the next victim will be taken.
We also have Alex being harassed by his ex-fiancé.
The action is fast paced, you can actually put yourself in the seat with Alex, and work out who the master criminal is.
Very descriptive, and well thought out.
