Alex Cross can go home again...But it just may kill him. Alex Cross left his hometown, and some family tragedies, for a better life with Nana Mama in Washington, DC. He hasn't looked back. Now his cousin is accused of an unthinkable murder, and Cross returns to Starksville, North Corolina, for the first time in thirty-five years. He discovers a community down on its luck, local residents who don't welcome him, and countless memories from his horrific childhood. He brings all his skills to finding out the truth about his cousin's case. But truth is hard to come by in a town where no one feels safe to speak. Chasing ghosts takes Cross to the sugarcane fields of Florida, where he's pulled into a case needing his kind of expertise: a string of socialite murders with ever more grisly settings. He's chasing too many ends - a brutal killer, the truth about his own past, and justice for his cousin - and any one of the answers might be fatal.
