Alex Cross chases a cold-blooded killer...with a conscience.

Shots ring out in the early morning hours in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. 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.

    This wasn't my cup of tea. I think as a "read" I would've liked it better than as a "listen." The narration was both good and bad; I know there needs to be a lot of detail in thrillers in order for them to be thrilling, but the listening to all the details wore me down. Also, the main female protagonist's voice made her sound like a high-school cheerleader, not a woman who has just been made chief of detectives. I got three hours into it, then had to give up.

    Just another great book by James Patterson.
