A detective and FBI agent join forces on what seems like an open-and-shut case -- but a new rash of killings sends them on a pulse-pounding race against time in this intense thriller.
Michael and Megan Fitzgerald are siblings who share a terrifying past. Both adopted, and now grown -- Michael is a long-haul truck driver, Megan a college student majoring in psychology -- they trust each other before anyone else. They've had to. Their parents are public intellectuals, an Ivy League clinical psychologist and a renowned psychiatrist, and they brought up their adopted children in a rarefied, experimental environment. It sheltered them from the world's harsh realities, but it also forced secrets upon them, secrets they keep at all costs.
In Los Angeles, Detective Garrett Dobbs and FBI Agent Jessica Gimble have joined forces to work a murder that seems like a dead cinch. Their chief suspect is quickly identified and apprehended --but then there's another killing just like the one they've been investigating. And another. And not just in Los Angeles -- the spree spreads across the country. The Fitzgerald family comes to the investigators' attention, but Dobbs and Gimble are at a loss -- if one of the four is involved, which Fitzgerald might it be?
From coastal California to upstate New York, Dobbs and Gimble race against time and across state lines to stop an ingenious and deeply deranged killer -- one whose dark and twisted appetites put them outside the range of logic or experience.

    Decent storyline but poorly constructed book. Megan’s written statement was more of a discussion between 2 people or an interview. The ending was disjointed to me.

    Love James Patterson books. I’ve read every Alex Cross book, some mores than once. This is the first book by Patterson I regretted getting. It’s so bad I only finished it because I spent the money for the book.
  • Not worth reading

  • Uh what?

    Terrible! Very disappointing. I usually like James Patterson books. I read poor reviews,but bought it anyway. They were right, total waste of time and money!

    Just when you think you know what’s happening... think again. Absolutely incredible
  • Not a fan of this one...

    By Gsd20paws
    I was so excited to start this story, but it wasn’t even close to all the other Patterson novels I’ve devoured. You are spinning in so many directions, caught between psychotic and evil...Slow and confusing as it was I read 62% and quit. That’s a first for me.
  • First Patterson Book I couldn’t finish and I’ve read them all!

    I tried to stick with it, but I couldn’t waste another minute of my time with this mess.
