Cross Country -- by James Patterson

I'm a fan of Alex Cross.  This story was not my favorite in the series, but in my biased opinion, a worthwhile read.  Alex trys to track a vicious killer and his gang into his home turf in Africa.  He quickly discovers that policework by an American cop in these foreign nations has many different challenges than he has faced in his previous cases.  This book is more about Alex's survival than his investigative skills.  Somehow, though, he persists in Africa and discovers some powerful secrets.  When he is finally forced back home, he arrives just in time to face some horrible consequences.  In true Alex Cross fashion, when others would let it go, he follows the case through to the end.  For Alex Cross, however, "the end" is relative.  His cases always weave a complicated web.
