He had always wanted to be famous. When he kidnapped two well-known rich kids it was headline news. Then one of them was found - dead. For such a high-profile case, they needed Alex Cross, a psychologist, and Jezzie Flanagan, a Secret Service agent - yet even they were no match for the killer.

Genre: Thriller

Praise for this book

"All at once comes Along Came a Spider, with terror and suspense that graps the reader and won't let go. Just try running away from this one." - Ed McBain

"Along Came a Spider is the rarity--a psychological thriller that truly breaks new ground as James Patterson brilliantly explores dark crevices of the aberrant mind. Detective Alex Cross is real and fascinating! When can I meet Cross again? Soon. I hope. Spider is a sure winner; Cross is the fictional detective of the nineties!" - Ann Rule

"Along Came a Spider is a first-rate thriller-fasten your seatbelts and keep the lights on!" - Sidney Sheldon
