Double Cross - James Patterson
Just when Alex Cross's life is calming down, he is drawn back
into the game to confront a criminal mastermind like no other. The
elaborate murders that have stunned Washington, DC, are the wildest that
Alex Cross and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever
seen. This maniac adores an audience, and stages his killings as
spectacles in public settings. Alex is pursuing a genius of terror who
has the whole city on edge as it waits for his next move. And the killer
loves the attention, no doubt-he even sets up his own Web site and live
video feed to trumpet his madness.
And in Colorado, another
criminal mastermind is planning a triumphant return. From his
supermaximum-security prison cell, Kyle Craig has plotted for years to
have one chance at an impossible escape. If he has to join forces with
DC's Audience Killer to get back at the man who put him in that
cell--Alex Cross--all the better.

MY THOUGHTS: This is book is book 13 in the Alex Cross series. Instead of 1 criminal, Alex has 2 criminals to catch. One, the Audience Killer, is a master at setting up show stopping murders for everyone to see. He's leading Alex and Detective Brianna Stone into a set-up with a criminal Alex has already put behind bars, Kyle Craig, former FBI agent, and really, really bad guy without a conscious. Alex and Brianna are close to catching the Audience Killer, but haven't quite got that last clue as to who he is. But they keep digging and finally get the last piece of the puzzle, but there is a surprise at the end....guess who's there waiting for them? I give this book 5.....
This book is for 1 of my challenges.....
