Along Came a Spider, Paperback

Along Came a Spider Paperback



The spectacular international bestseller that introduced Washington-based homicide detective Alex Cross and launched James Patterson's career as one of the fastest-selling thriller writers in the world - now reissued in striking new cover style.

He had always wanted to be famous. When he kidnapped two well-known rich kids, it was headline news.

Then one of them was found - dead - and the whole nation was in uproar.

For such a high-profile case, they needed the top people - Alex Cross, a black detective with a PhD in psychology, and Jezzie Flanagan, an ambitious young Secret Service agent - yet even they were no match for the killer.

He had the unnerving ability to switch from blood-crazed madness to clear-eyed sanity in an instant.

But was he the helpless victim of a multiple-personality disorder - or a brilliant, cold-blooded manipulator?
