In ALONG CAME A SPIDER, a psychological suspense thriller adapted from James Patterson's first highly acclaimed novel in the Alex Cross series, Morgan Freeman reprises his role as the Washington, D.C. police detective and psychologist who is through playing mind games with criminals - that is until a methodical predator, Gary Soneji (Michael Wincott) commits a daring kidnapping and lures Cross into the case.

Soneji's not out for ransom, he wants something much bigger - a place in the history books. His every move is planned with the precision of a spider spinning his web, and Cross and Secret Service agent Jezzie Flannigan (Monica Potter) are in a race against time to stop him.
