From the Publisher:
At the onset of his career with the FBI, Alex Cross is instructed to track down a band of kidnappers who are snatching people and possibly selling them into slavery, a case that is complicated by a terrible threat to Cross's own family and his frustrations with the Bureau's outdated methods. Reprint.Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever encountered - a predator known only as "the Wolf. "Alex Cross's first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks as if a shadowy figure called the Wolf - a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organize crime - is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves. Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home too. His ex-fiancee, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life - and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.
Annotation:
Patterson's perennial hero, homicide detective Alex Cross, returns for another adventure--and this time it's his own family that's in danger. The villains are a team of kidnappers with bizarre motives. Alex races against time as he tries to convince his hidebound colleagues on the D.C. police force that he has the key to solving the crimes.
Author Bio
James Patterson
James Patterson grew up in Newburgh, New York, 50 miles north of New York City. Valedictorian of his class at the Christian Brothers school, St. Patrick's, in 1965, Patterson graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in English. He first entertained the idea of becoming a writer in 1971 when he worked as a college student in a mental institution, a job that afforded him abundant time to read. He came up with the idea for his first novel during that time, and five years later, after 26 rejection slips, his first effort, "The Thomas Berryman Number", appeared in bookstores. Since that time, Patterson has written numerous best-selling thrillers featuring the sensitive, modern-day hero Alex Cross, including "Kiss the Girls", which was made into a major motion picture starring Morgan Freeman.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"...[V]astly entertaining....Full of plot surprises and featuring a balanced mix of intrigue, hard action, and angst, the novel...grips from start to finish. The Alex Cross series remains Patterson's finest, and this is the finest Cross in years." (starred review) 10/06/2003
