Alex Cross returns in this book for another adventure. This time he has plans to get married to Bree Stone, but before they can get on with their marriage plans, a sharpshooter kills 2 well-known, but dirty and underhanded Washington, D.C. politicians. Then a couple more crooked politicians meet their demise. Many believe the gunman is a hero, others think the gunman is crazy!
The public and politicians become scared and wonder who is next. They become afraid to appear in public, afraid they may get caught in the crossfire. Max Siegel from the FBI gets called in to help Alex Cross get to the bottom of the murders, but Max seems to be questioning everything Alex does, and the leads Alex seems to find.
Alex believes the gunman is a professional, maybe with army or marksmanship training, and he doesn't believe the gunman is working alone. The gunman seems to have inside information on the movements of all of his victims, and probable victims.
All of a sudden Max Siegel does an about face, and suspiciously becomes helpful; then Alex receives a phone call from his worst enemy, Kyle Craig! Now he has to deal with a serial killer, Max Siegel, Kyle Craig who wants to kill his entire family along with Bree, and whoever the mastermind is behind the murders, plus his upcoming wedding. What will become of Washington, D.C., and all it's inhabitants including Alex Cross??
This was a very interesting audio book to listen to, I didn't want to quit listening. I really enjoyed the suspense and the story line. I rate this book a 5 out of 5. Great work James Patterson!
