Alex Cross has a lot on his mind. The detective/psychologist's young daughter has been diagnosed with a serious illness, and his girlfriend, Christine, has decided to call it quits. She just can't take the danger and continuous emotional roller-coaster ride of being involved with a cop. And a dangerous job it is--for now Alex is looking for a maniac who calls himself 'The Mastermind.' This guy is a brilliant, manipulative, cold-blooded killer whose agenda goes beyond money and murder--he seems to want revenge against Alex Cross himself. But why? That question haunts Alex. Hopefully, FBI agent Betsey Cavalierre can help him shed some light on the puzzling case. Betsey is not only smart, but also extremely caring. She soothes Alex's troubled soul, and the two become close. But they'll have to put their feelings for one another aside when The Mastermind goes on a virtual killing spree. Alex knows they must find the killer fast, for he is absolutely certain that someone he loves will be the next target. Explicit violence, language and subject matter.
