In this phenomenally successful international No. 1 bestseller, homicide detective Alex Cross - hero of Along Came a Spider and Jack and Jill - is thrust into a case he will never forget.
This time there isn't just one killer, there are two. One collects beautiful, intelligent women on college campuses on the east coast of the USA. The other is terrorising Los Angeles with a series of unspeakable murders. But the truly chilling news is that the two brilliant and elusive killers are communicating, co-operating, competing.
