Kiss the Girls (1997)
Washington detective and forensic psychologist Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman) is leaving for Durham, North Carolina when he receives word of his niece’s disappearance. She learns from local police and colleague Nick Ruskin (Cary Elwes) that the student is just the latest in a series of young women who have gone missing. One of them is found dead and it becomes clear that the criminal responsible for the kidnappings is also the killer.
Cross will be most helped in the investigation by the only woman who managed to escape Casanova, as the masked man introduced himself to her. An experienced detective realizes that Casanova is not primarily a murderer, but deaths are only the result of refusing to follow his rules.
Along Came a Spider (2001)
After two years of quiet work at the school, the teacher kidnaps the senator’s daughter and very quickly contacts the criminal psychologist Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman) to, it seems, play cat and mouse. Morgan Freeman as an experienced police psychologist will find himself in a game of outwitting a cunning kidnapper in a tense “Spider Conspiracy”.
Cross is convinced that he was contacted only to provide the kidnapper with some media fame and confirms his suspicions when he finds a book about the famous case “Lindbergh” in the kidnapper’s hideout. One of the agents in charge of babysitting the girl offers her help to an experienced Cross, who doesn’t know who to trust, if she wants the kidnapped to survive.
