A razor-sharp Alex Cross thriller from the No. 1 International bestselling author. Alex Cross is preparing to resign from the Washington Police Force. He's enjoying the feeling; not least because the Mastermind is now in prison. And, finally, Alex has met a woman, Jamilla Hughes. With Nana and the kids, he is talking about the future. Then John Sampson shows up at the house, desperate for Alex's help. Three young military wives have been savagely killed during a 'girls' night out' and Sampson's friend, a master sergeant at the army base, stands accused.
