Rejoining the police force in the wake of a series of elaborate murders in Washington, D.C., detective Alex Cross finds himself working to outmaneuver the killer's penchant for inducing hysteria with increasingly sensational killings.

Blackwell North Amer
Just when Alex Cross's life is calming down, he is drawn back into the game to confront a criminal mastermind like no other. The elaborate murders that have stunned Washington, DC, are the wildest that Alex Cross and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever seen. This maniac adores an audience, and stages his killings as spectacles in public settings. Alex is pursuing a genius of terror who has the whole city on edge as it waits for his next move. And the killer loves the attention, no doubt - he even sets up his own Web site and live video feed to trumpet his madness.
And in Colorado, another criminal mastermind is planning a triumphant return. From his super-maximum-security prison cell, Kyle Craig has plotted for years to have once chance at an impossible escape. If he has to join forces with DC's Audience Killer to get back at the man who put him in that cell - Alex Cross - all the better.

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.
