As the name might indicate this is an Alex Cross book. Darn Patterson anyway. Just when I think I'm finally caught up, out comes another one, and I see that there is already another new Alex Cross book in the book stores. In this one we finally hear the details of Alex's beloved wife's murder, which has been haunting him all these years, and he does battle with the executioner who ruined his life. As with all the Alex Cross books, this one is a page turner.
