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:
Detective Alex Cross has never stopped searching for his wife's killer. In CROSS, he becomes embroiled in the investigation of a vicious serial rapist and uncovers clues pointing toward his wife's case. Peter Jay Fernandez goes all-out in interpreting James Patterson's troubled hero. Fernandez wrenches emotion out of every scene, even when he's portraying Cross's tough-as-nails grandmother, an elderly black woman. He's made even better by the addition of narrator Jay O. Sanders in several roles, including the cold-as-ice villain, "The Butcher." The villain is a brutal sociopath who murdered his abusive father as a teenager and who himself pretends to be the perfect husband and father. Cross fans will appreciate the twists at the end.
