The legendary thriller that launched the international Alex Cross phenomenon
Two children have been kidnapped from an elite Washington D.C. private school. Detective Alex Cross must find them.
But as he pursues the sinister kidnapper, Gary Soneji, Cross is pulled deeper into a tangled web of lies. Is Soneji really just a maths teacher with a get-rich-quick scheme - or is he something far more dangerous?
As the stakes rise, Cross realises the crime goes deeper than just two children - and could even be connected to the most notorious unsolved kidnapping in history...
Adapted as a major Hollywood movie, starring Morgan Freeman
