Publisher's Synopsis

The thirty-second instalment in James Patterson's globally bestselling Alex Cross series.


It's time to put the guns down, Detective Cross. Even if you knew the way out of this place, we would catch you.

A serial killer is taking out America's finest legals minds, and Alex Cross is called to investigate their brutal murders.

But during a dangerous mission to track down the killer, his wife, Bree, and best friend, John Sampson, go missing.

To save the people he loves most, Cross has only three goals:

Number one: Find Bree and John.
Number two: Escape.
Number three: Survive.

If he fails, there will be no one left in the House of Cross.
