Just when Alex thought his life was calming down into a routine of patients and therapy sessions, he finds himself back in the game--this time to catch a criminal mastermind like no other. A spate of elaborate murders in Washington D.C. have the whole East Coast on edge. They are like nothing Alex Cross and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever seen. With each murder, the case becomes increasingly complex. There's only one thing Alex knows: the killer adores an audience. As victims are made into gruesome spectacles citywide, inducing a media hysteria, it becomes clear to Alex that the man he's after is a genius of terror--and he's after fame. The killer has the whole city by its strings--and he'll stop at nothing to become the most terrifying star that Washington D.C. has ever seen.

Patterson is a great writer and this book is exceptionally well-written. It was hard to put this book down. In fact the book would have been perfect, except that the ending was very unsatisfying. It would have been so easy for this to have been rated A plus, but with the surprisingly weak ending, I'd have to rate it a B plus.

This is the first book I have read by James Patterson and I loved it. I am now going to read all of the Alex Cross series starting with "Along Came a Spider". Very quick read.

The ending is a little soft but still enough drama to entice you to read the next "Cross" book

I enjoyed very much. But was really disapointed in the ending.
