"A thrill a minute"
A man and a woman abduct former Atlanta reporter Elizabeth
Connolly from her home. The victim is the ninth in two
years kidnapped by this team, who do little to hide the
crime. Instead, the brazen duo takes the victim in public
places with their horrified families as witnesses.
Several homicides have been associated with this deadly
team. The FBI believes that this notorious pair works for
the Wolf of the Red Mafiya, Pasha Sorokin who sells the
kidnapped people on a white slave commodity market.
No longer with the Metro DC police force, the FBI assigns
trainee Dr. Alex Cross to investigate the snatchings
because the brass believe his unique approach to
criminology is needed to break the case. Alex begins
making the rounds picking up tips from his myriad of DC
sources. The abductions and collateral murders continue
as Alex gets closer to catching the felons, but soon a tip
hits home that his family is now a target.
THE BIG BAD WOLF is a well written exciting action packed
police procedural that hooks the audience from the moment
that Elizabeth is snatched in Buckhead's Phipps Plaza as
she was already purchased by a client. Bringing student
Alex to run the case in spite of his record with DC Metro
seems hard to accept especially with the hard nosed agents
basically bowing to his greater wisdom. Still once that
stark leap is made, fans will enjoy Alex Cross, FBI Agent
in Training battling the Wolf and his pack.
