The first of the Alex Cross novels, this book has spun a worthy opponent and realistic hero into a complicated web of intrigue, serial murder, and psychological battle. The hunt involves many twists and turns that are both unpredictable and seemingly unexplainable (until the end). The protagonist and his adversary are very evenly matched intellectually, providing an engaging battle for readers to enjoy vicariously. Great read. Action, adventure, mystery, minimal romance.
