I was very disappointed in this installment of the Alex Cross novels - his children are barely mentioned. Gone is the 'family man' - he is more interested in Bree. Alex makes the decision to return to the police force but doesn't even discuss it with his family other than Nana. The killers are refering to him by name and sending him photos of his family yet he doesn't provide any additional security. This is not the Alex Cross of previous novels he is way off his game. I also grew tired of the detailed random murders for no reason other than attention. I finally learned the difference between a 'good murder mystery' and a gory, psycho killer novel. A good murder mystery this is not and I won't be tuning in anymore.
