This is the ninth novel in the Alex Cross series Alex Cross's first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues perplexed. Across the country, men and women are kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappear completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it seems The Wolf is the master criminal behind this terrible trade and who is bringing a new reign of terror to organized crime. Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex is impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out alone to track his new prey and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive. As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home, too. His ex-fiancée, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life - and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.

Review: The Big Bad Wolf (Alex Cross #9)

User Review  - Beto - Goodreads

This was good for a crime book. Basically about people selling women online and Alex trying to catch them. It's part of a series, that's my only complaint. It doesn't end. Read full review

User Review  - Mrs Grueb - Goodreads

This is one of the Alex Cross series books and it is the first one to feature him as an FBI agent. This book is centered on him tracking down 'the wolf' who is leading a ring of human traffickers. Excellent read that keeps you guessing! Read full review
