Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
The President's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone high-up is using the FBI, the Secret Service, and the CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark.
Originally published: London: Century, 2011.
The President's son and daughter have been abducted from their school... Detective Alex Cross is on the scene from the outset, yet he's shunted to the fringes of the investigation. Someone powerful doesn't want Cross too close. A deadly contagion in the DC water supply threatens the capital, and Alex sees the most devastating attack on the United States looming. Working flat-out on the abduction, this massive assault now pushes Cross over the edge. Time passes. The chances of finding the children alive diminish. In an emotional private meeting, the First Lady asks Alex to please save her kids. But, despite the highest security clearance, he gets no closer to the kidnapper - and Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes in.
