This book left me with mixed emotions. I liked the story, the searching out the criminal, but the love story that was carried out through the book was out of place and felt forced and silly. So I went from thinking I couldn't finish the book to it being enjoyable. Alex Cross starts the book chasing one insane killer that had gotten out of jail. Alex's shots and kills the man, but then his family and himself are badly beaten. The FBI calls in a behavioral expert who then kills the man who beat up Alex's family. He doesn't just kill the man, he dissects him. We learn that the FBI agent was a murderer plaguing Europe. The rest of the book is chasing "Mr Smith" down so they can charge him as the murderer. He ends up killing himself.
