Narrator Taye Diggs's steady delivery of Alex Cross's most haunting case enthralls listeners in this 25th anniversary audio edition. Cross follows the trail of Gary Soneji, a.k.a. Murphy, a serial killer with a split personality who terrorizes Washington, DC, with vicious murders and the daring kidnapping of two children. Diggs portrays Soneji using singsong tones and Murphy as calm and harmless sounding, personas that easily fool investigators, except for Cross, who sees behind the mask. Cross sounds exactly like the thoughtful detective-psychologist he is. Secret Service agent Jezzie Flanagan's voice is no-nonsense at work but softens during love scenes. Diggs shifts his pacing to suit the action, which unfolds in fits and starts. M.B.K. 2020 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
