Publisher Comments:

When two joggers are found brutally slain in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park in a manner that suggests a macabre ritual, Detective Alex Cross is called in to investigate. The bizarre murders are reminiscent of a Washington, D.C., case that Cross has been unable to solve. With the help of a female San Francisco detective, Cross' investigation takes him deep inside a menacing world where role playing explodes into bloodlust and frenzy. At the same time, a vicious super-criminal from Cross' past known as the Mastermind is stalking him. And in a shocking, deadly endgame, the detective will at last discover the awful secret of the Mastermind.

Synopsis:

D.C. Detective Alex Cross has seen a lot of crime scenes. But even he is appalled by the gruesome murders of two joggers in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park - killings that look more like the work of savage beasts than humans. Local police are horrified and even the FBI is baffled. Then, as Cross is called in to take on the case, the carnage takes off, leaving a trail of bodies across America and sweeping him to Savannah, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Los Angeles . . as his nemesis, the merciless criminal known as the Mastermind, stalks him, taunts him, and once again, threatens everything he holds dear...
