This book was so good I read it at one sitting. Alex Cross is back and this time his investigation takes him to Nigeria, where he's smack in the middle of a revolution. An old, dear friend of Cross' is brutally murdered in D.C. along with her entire family. Cross is hot on the trail of their murderer who is known as The Tiger. The Tiger has a small African army of assassins; all around the age of 10; personally recruited from Sierra Leone detention camps to do unspeakable things at The Tiger's command. This book was such a page-turner that I kept getting annoyed when the pages stuck together and I couldn't separate then fast enough!
