Synopsis:

Could a ghost from his past take everything away from Alex Cross?

Mere hours after witnessing the execution of a killer he helped put behind bars, Alex Cross is called to the scene of a copycat murder. A note signed 'M' rests on the corpse: 'You messed up big time, Dr. Cross.'

Was an innocent man just put to death? As the executed convict's family launch a vicious campaign against Cross, his abilities as a detective are called into question.

The enigmatic 'M' lures Cross out of Washington, DC to the sites of multiple homicides, all marked with distressingly familiar details that conjure up decades-old cases and Cross family secrets.

Details that make it clear M is after a prize so dear that – were the killer to attain it – Cross's life would be destroyed.

It’s the new James Patterson! Do I need to say more thriller lovers?
Book #27 already in this series and it just keeps getting better and better. Unable to put this book down for a second (OK to make something to snack), it’s nailbiting, it’s everything a reader needs to lose sleep, interest in real life and food (damn you, Patterson).

At moments a bit repetitive with previous books, but heck it’s #27 in this series. Things are supposed to happen to a badass person like Alex Cross!
