When Cross is called to investigate a massacre-style murder scene, he is shocked to find that the victim is an old friend. Angry, hurt and more determined than ever, Cross begins the hunt for the perpetrators of this cruel crime.
He is drawn into a dangerous underworld right in the heart of Washington DC that leads him on a life threatening journey to the Niger Delta where heroin dealing, slave trade and oil and gas theft are rife.
At the centre of this terrifying world, Cross finds the Tiger, the psychopathic leader of a fearsome gang of killers who are not what they seem.
When the Tiger is on the prowl, he shows no mercy to others. But Alex Cross is hot on his heels in a heart-stopping chase that takes him across Africa and finds him not only hunting for a horrific killer but also fighting for his own survival.

Always enjoy the audio edition as it brings the character to life.
James Patterson puts his own style into every Alex Cross book
They bring the action right to you. You have a sense of being their with the characters, experiencing all the emotions.
When Alex Cross gets home and realises that the Tiger has his family. His grief and sense of lose is palatable.
Once again James Patterson has delivered another outstanding Alex Cross novel, the readers have brought them to life.
Very disappointing listen. The hero is a superhero this time and his escapades in Africa are impossible.
