Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Along Came a Spider begins with the double kidnapping of the daughter of a famous Hollywood actress and the young son of the secretary of the Treasury. And that's only the beginning! Gary Soneji is a murderous serial kidnapper who wants to commit the crime of the century. Alex Cross is the brilliant homicide detective pitted against him. Jezzie Flanagan is the female supervisor of the Secret Service who completes one of the most unusual suspense triangles in any thriller you have ever read.

Synopsis:

Now a major motion picture, scheduled for release in March, 2001, starring Morgan Freeman, Patterson's chilling psychological thriller in his Alex Cross series that exploded onto hardcover bestseller lists nationwide is re-released in this special movie tie-in edition. Reissue.

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.
