The next book in the Alex Cross series.

Alex is still celebrating his partial victory from Pop Goes the Weasel, when another terrible crime happens. Someone, calling himself the Mastermind, has been robbing banks, killing hostages and their families, and his partners.

Not only is Alex trying to solve there brutal murders as the numbers increase and the pattern changes, but his personal life is spiraling out of control. Christine is keeping her distance, his daughter is sick, and he may have growing feelings for an FBI agent on the case.

I really enjoyed this book. Years ago, this was my first James Patterson ever read, but for some reason I don’t remember much, which was good because everything was fresh in my mind and more surprising. I’m not really counting it as a re-read since I didn’t remember the premise.
