Triple Cross opening line: Suzanne Liu lived for days like this, days when her world seemed like a great game and the sweet smell of opportunity and cash hung in the air like lavender and sage.
Alex Cross and John Sampson are trying to hunt down ‘the Family Man. A killer who targets entire families, seemingly at random. They will take all the help they can get, but when author Thomas Tull offers his insights, they are sceptical. Could they be dealing with the worst type of serial killer? One who creates a persona just to fulfill a personal agenda? Or is some mad man on the loose killing people just because he wants to? Alex is determined to catch this man before he destroys even more families.

An interesting sounding book, Tandy. Funny that James Patterson also has a reluctant reader.
It seems to be a prompt for many authors 🙂
