A birthday celebration is underway with all of the people that Alex Cross treasures. Alex’s Nana, his children, Damon, Jannie and Ali as well as his friend Sampson and his family. Detective Brianna Stone, Alex’s girl friend, was also present. It is a festive party where the participants feel that nothing could wrong. One phone call ended the festivities. Alex is told that a member of his family is dead.

Caroline Cross is Alex’s niece but has been out of touch with the family for quite sometime. Alex soon discovers that Caroline was working as a prostitute. His investigation reveals other girls in the same occupation have recently come up missing.

Alex is determined to find the killer and bring that person to justice. The investigation will not prove easy because there are people in high places that do not want the killer found. The trail leads Alex to a luxury club where money can buy you anything.

From the private club in the backwoods of Virginia to the White House, investigators seek the elusive club member called Zeus. Cross is a part of the investigation every step of the way but at the same time dealing with another personal crisis in his immediate family.

I, Alex Cross is the sixteenth installment in the Cross series and one not to be missed.
