One of the best Patterson books yet. This was number 2 in the Alex Cross series. Well thought out cop thriller/mystery that has Detective Cross this time working out of the North Carolina district as he travels there after his niece is reported missing from her dorm at Duke University. Turns out someone is snatching beautiful 20 something girls by the handfuls down there, his niece included.
Cross along with his partner Detective Sampson try to figure out if it's one or two un-subs they are in fact looking for.
This book was very hard to put down at times with a few clever plot twists although the book keeps you guessing right up until the final few chapters. I like the Alex Cross charector who let alone having the misfortunes he has had in life still feels the drive within to stop the baddies on our planet.
Looking forward to book 3 in the Det. Cross series 'Jack And Jill
