Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, DC, Police Department when an unknown shooter gunned down his wife, Maria, in front of him. Alex's need for vengeance was placed on hold as he faced another huge challenge-raising his children without their mother.
Years later Alex is making a bold move in his life. He has left the FBI and set up practice as a psychologist once again. His life with Nana Mama, Damon, Jannie, and little Alex finally feels like it's in order. He even has a chance at a new love.
Then Cross's former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. He is tracking a serial rapist in Georgetown, one whose brutal modus operandi includes threatening his victims with terrifying photos. Cross and Sampson need the testimonies of these women to stop the predator, but the rape victims refuse to reveal anything about their attacker.
When the case triggers a connection to Maria's death, Alex may have a chance to catch his wife's murderer after all these years. Is this a chance for justice at long last? Or the culminating scene in his own deadly obsession?

James Patterson's most recent #1 Alex Cross novel is Mary, Mary. He is the author of 36 novels and lives in Florida.From AudioFile:
Dual narration heightens the conflict between Alex Cross, former FBI agent, and Michael Sullivan, "the Butcher of Sligo." Peter Jay Fernandez, the voice of Cross in almost all of Patterson's audios, shows understanding of Alex's humor and foibles, as well as his vulnerability in revisiting the painful death of his first wife and his inability to leave behind his life as a criminal tracker. Jay O. Sanders's cold, ruthless tones portray Sullivan's psychopathic zeal for threatening, killing, and torturing. He also conveys the villains' tensions as he battles childhood demons, urges to hunt new prey, and Mob figures who threaten his family. The appeal of this book comes from the fascinating parallels between these two characters. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
