Deadly Cross by James Patterson

Alex Cross, a retired detective, now works for both the FBI and the DC Metro Police Department. He has his hands full with a double murder and several missing teenage girls in Georgetown and the surrounding areas.

He tries to find answers to many questions involving a man and woman shot in the back seat of her convertible behind a private school. The woman is a gorgeous Georgetown socialite named Kay Williamson, the ex-wife of the Vice President of the United States. Her backseat companion is none other than Randall Christopher, the founder and principal of Harrison Charter High school.

Alex was also checking for leads and information on the disappearances of several young girls over the span of fifteen years. A couple of girls had disappeared recently; they were raped, murdered, and dumped in the river near town.

As he checks for more information, several things start coming together in both cases. But Alex has many more miles to travel, hours of research to do, and people to question in order to put all the information together and catch the one killer of all the victims.

This book is good reading, and hard to put down. Join the famous Alex Cross in his rush to find answers that could save the lives of three young girls by checking out this book at the Osceola Public Library.
