Book #27 in the Alex Cross series, published 2019
A killer with all the skills of a master detective has made Alex Cross the subject of his deranged “investigation.”
After witnessing the execution of Michael Edgerton, a man he helped convict of several murders, Alex Cross thought he could finally put the case behind him.
But when a body turns up with a note signed by ‘M’, Alex knows that the nightmare is far from over.
Accused by Edgerton’s family of framing him for murder, Cross fights to clear his name as the case against him builds.
And as more notes – and more bodies – start appearing, Cross is determined to put an end to this case once and for all.
In a Virginia penitentiary, Alex Cross and his partner, John Sampson, witness the execution of a killer they helped convict. Hours later, they are called to the scene of a copycat crime. A note signed “M” rests on the corpse. “You messed up big time, Dr. Cross.”
