Detective Alex Cross is in a state of despair. Thierry Mulch, a psychotic genius and ruthless killer, is holding Cross's family hostage. Driven by hatred and a thirst for revenge, Mulch is threatening to kill them all, and break Cross forever. But Cross is fighting back, aided by his foster daughter Ava, who has recently returned to the fold after a chance encounter with Cross on the mean streets of town.

In a race against time, Cross prepares to make the ultimate sacrifice to bring his family home, and leave himself blowing in the wind...
