The spectacular international bestseller that introduced Washington-based homicide detective Alex Cross and launched James Patterson’s career as one of the fastest-selling thriller writers in the world – now reissued in striking new cover style.
He had always wanted to be famous. When he kidnapped two well-known rich kids, it was headline news. Then one of them was found – dead – and the whole nation was in uproar. For such a high-profile case, they needed the top people – Alex Cross, a black detective with a PhD in psychology, and Jezzie Flanagan, an ambitious young Secret Service agent – yet even they were no match for the killer. He had the unnerving ability to switch from blood-crazed madness to clear-eyed sanity in an instant. But was he the helpless victim of a multiple-personality disorder – or a brilliant, cold-blooded manipulator?

‘Brilliantly terrifying… so exciting that I had to stay up all night to finish it… packed with white-knuckle twists.’
‘An incredibly suspenseful read with a one-of-a-kind villain who is as terrifying as he is intriguing. One of the best thrillers of the year.’
‘Terror and suspense that grab the reader and won’t let go. Just try running away from this one.’
James Patterson combines his position as a bestselling novelist with a full-time career as the chairman of the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency in New York. He first took the bestseller lists by storm with his phenomenal international No 1 bestseller Along Came a Spider, which introduced his hero Alex Cross, a Washington-based homicide detective with a PhD in psychology. Cross made his second appearance in the worldwide No 1 bestseller Kiss the Girls, soon to be a major Hollywood film. His most recent novel is the bestselling mystery thriller Hide and Seek.
