Detective Alex Cross is back- and he's in love. But his happiness is
threatened by a series of chilling murders in Washington, D.C., murders
with a pattern so twisted they leave investigators reeling. Cross's
pursuit of the killer produces a suspect, a British diplomat named
Geoffrey Shafer. But proving he's the murderer becomes a potentially
deadly task. As Shafer engages in a brilliant series of surprising
countermoves, Alex and his fiance become hopelessly entangled with the
most memorable nemesis Cross has ever faced.
