The Alex Cross books.

Alex Cross is a detective/ psychologist with the city of Washington D.D. His tough guy exterior with the police department is off-set by his love of classical piano/jazz is and his affection for his two children.

Two serial killers-best friends- if a serial killer can share that intimately. One on each coast…comparing their conquests. One of the victims, a loved one of Alex Cross, places him at the center of the solving of these unspeakable transgressions. With the hopes of finding Naomi- his niece- still alive, Alex is drawn into yet another series of brutal psychotic adventures.

Pure, unadulterated racism… not based necessarily on hate… but on fear.

Both fear and hate allow one’s mind to disconnect of humanity’s common sense and compassion: ‘historically’ revealed in this book.

I felt as “Ben” – wanting to throw-up and hide from the people that were supposed to be my peers.

Alec is caught in the investigation of the brutal death of a loved one. A high-roller from the White House is implicated.

The quandary: Who does one trust when good guys go rogue?
