Shots ring out in the early morning hours in the suburbs of Washington, DC. When the smoke clears, a prominent police official lies dead, leaving the city's police force scrambling for answers. Under pressure from the mayor, Alex Cross steps into the leadership vacuum to crack the case. But before Cross can make any headway, a brutal crime wave sweeps across the region. The deadly scenes share only one common thread -- the victims are all criminals. And the only thing more dangerous than a murderer without a conscience, is a killer who thinks he has justice on his side. As Cross pursues an adversary who has appointed himself judge, jury, and executioner, he must take the law back into his own hands before the city he's sworn to protect descends into utter chaos.

I had a difficult time reading this book. It just didn't keep me interested. I usually like Patterson's "Alex Cross" books but somehow he missed something in this one. Perhaps Mr. Patterson is turning out books a little to quickly and they are losing substance.

It was so nice to have an Alex Cross book again. Although the book didn't have the depth of James Patterson's earlier books, it was a good read. The ending was a little flimsy but I still liked it.

This is a great revenge story; dumb broad texting--take her out. Thugs and drugs bugs--take them out. Then Patterson gets taken with himself and incorporates a cheesy ending that could have been left out, for the better.

The story starts well and builds through the story, but like most of Patterson's novels the ending is disappointing. It's almost as if Patterson gets bored with his story and looks for quick ways to bring his stories to an end. As they say in Monty Python, "ooh, I thought that was a bit predictable!".
Having said that, for people looking for a uncomplicated mystery/thriller that is an easy read this is a good read.

One of the best. This one kept me on my toes until the end. I love James Patterson and the Alex Cross series as well as The Murder Club , Private and Michael Bennett books.

I love the Cross series. Though the plots are similar I still enjoy reading each book as soon as I can get my hands on it!
