About the book: 

Alex's son Ali is eager to follow in his father's footsteps as a detective, but when his best friend goes missing, what price will he have to pay to solve the mystery?

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

Alex Cross
The brilliant DC detective who never gives up on a case.

Ali Cross
The tenacious kid who's determined to follow in his father's footsteps.

The case that finally gives him a chance
Ali knows Gabe Qualls better than anyone, so when his friend goes missing, Ali jumps right into action. Being Alex Cross's son has taught him the skills he needs to solve the mystery: intelligence, persistence, and logic. One thing he didn't inherit? Patience.

Because Ali knows that with every day that passes without the police finding Gabe, the less likely it is that he'll ever be found. And being Alex Cross's son, he refuses to accept those odds.
