Detective Alex Cross must confront his most terrifying nemesis ever- and his own deepest fears- in this electrifying thriller from the world's #1 bestselling writer.
D.C. Detective Alex Cross has seen a lot of crime scenes. But even he is appalled by the gruesome murders of two joggers in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park-killings that look more like the work of savage beasts than humans. Local police are horrified and even the FBI is baffled.
Then, as Cross is called in to take on the case, the carnage takes off, leaving a trail of bodies across America and sweeping him to Savannah, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Los Angeles as his nemesis, the merciless criminal known as the Mastermind, stalks him, taunts him, and once again, threatens everything he holds dear...

Alex Cross helps a San Francisco detective investigate murders that appear to being committed by vampires. Another very good book by James Patterson.

Cross continues to hunt for the Mastermind while also trying to solve the case of the killings of two teenage 'vampires'. It is very simple writing with poor quality dialogue and little character development. This is not Patterson's best effort and my least favorite. It does end with a dramatic confrontation between Cross and the Mastermind and a big decision by Cross about his future.

A fantastical vampire homage. A page turner till the end. I really enjoyed this one!

A bit long. Good, not GREAT! If you like the author or the Alex Cross series, you might rate it higher.

One of the best in the series next to "Jack & Jill" so far. Can't wait to read the next book!
