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.

The kidnapper's identity is quickly determined: Gary Soneji, a maths teacher at the school. But identifying him and capturing him are two very different things, and as Cross's pursuit of the sinister kidnapper escalates, it becomes increasingly clear that Soneji is no get-rich-quick opportunist.

He's something far more dangerous, and the missing children are pawns in Soneji's deadly game. Cross soon realises that the crime goes far deeper than just two children – and begins to uncover connections to the most notorious unsolved kidnapping in history…
