Dopo anni di caccia a feroci serial killer, Alex Cross vorrebbe ritirarsi. Ma quando John Sampson, amico e compagno di numerose indagini, ha bisogno di aiuto, Cross non sa dire di no. Tre giovani mogli di militari sono state massacrate e del triplice omicidio è accusato un ex commilitone di Sampson, che si proclama innocente. Cross intuisce che c’è qualcosa di poco chiaro in quel delitto e scopre un filo rosso che lo lega ad altri casi in cui sono stati incriminati militari dalla vita irreprensibile. Ma l’esercito fa muro…
In cerca della verità, Cross e Sampson finiscono per trovarsi nel mirino di tre psicopatici, per i quali uccidere sembra essere un divertimento. Chi è il mandante? Quale terribile segreto può giustificare tutto questo orrore?

I like what the future holds for Cross, and I think he is better positioned for future serial killer hunting now. Overall the actual case was mediocre. There was a lack of m Leggi tutto
As usual, listened to a Patterson murder mystery when driving to Virginia in the middle of the night. I need something that will keep me awake (although I'm glad this one didn't have gunshot sound effects, as that sent my dog into a tizzy last time) but that I don't need to pay close attention to.

SPOILERS AHEAD Patterson’s own works are always easy to read. The formula of short chapters and roller coaster plot builds suspension well.
