Publisher's Summary

The seventh novel in the Alex Cross series. The Mastermind is back - and he's hot on detective Alex Cross's trail. His cold, taunting threats leave Alex angry and deeply concerned for his family's safety. Two joggers have been found dead in San Francisco - bitten and hung by their feet to drain the blood. Further murders in California, and then on the East Coast as well, completely baffle Alex and the FBI. Is this the work of a cult, or role players, or even of modern-day vampires? Desperate to stop the deaths, Alex teams up with Jamilla Hughes, a savvy woman detective, and the FBI's Kyle Craig. But Alex has never been closer to defeat, or in greater danger. He must survive a deadly confrontation - only to learn at last the awful secret of the Mastermind.


What the Critics Say

"If there really were human superheroes, Alex Cross would be at the head of the class...and, with each instalment in the series, Patterson makes sure his superhero gets bigger and better while at the same time becomming more vulnerable." (The New York Times)

Having read one Alex Cross book years ago I thought I'd give this a go. The plot lacked depth or any excitement. The two parallel stories were unrelated making it a disjointed book. The narrator's voice didn't work for me. Bland all round which is a shame as it means I probably won't be tempted to try another Alex Cross book.

Get Roses are Red first, but will stand alone

Having become a fan of the Alex Cross books, I got this and Roses are Red together, pleased I did. They were fast paced and well narrated, made me what to hear more.
