As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home too. And it looks as if a shadowy figure called the Wolf - a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organize crime - is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves. His ex-fiancee, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life - and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. They are being bought and sold. Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. Alex Cross battles the most ruthless and powerful killer he has ever encountered - a predator known only as 'the Wolf. ' Alex Cross's first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied.
