From Goodreads: In Los Angeles, a reporter investigating a series of murders is killed. In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, a beautiful medical intern suddenly disappears. Washington D.C.Us Alex Cross is back to solve the most baffling and terrifying murder case ever. Two clever pattern killers are collaborating, cooperating, competing–and they are working coast to coast.
What I Loved: This is the 2nd book in the Alex Cross series and probably my favorite. It is hard not to get caught up in the story and it actually had me on the edge of my seat a couple of times. All of the characters are fascinating and unique. Even the UnSubs are intriguing and well thought out. Just a very good thriller all around.
What I Liked: I liked the setting both on campus, in the woods, and even when they headed to LA. JP has a wonderful way with words and describing areas so that you feel like you are there as the action is happening.
Why I gave it a 5: This is one of the best thrillers that I have read and is one that I can pick back up even after knowing who did it. Great read!
Who I would recommend it to: Thriller/Mystery fans.
Why I re-read it:I did it as part of a challenge but also because it is one of my favorite thrillers (both on screen and on paper)
