Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman) is a forensic psychologist who has documented many of his cases in a series of best selling books. He has retired as a psychologist after his partner is killed in a botched investigation months earlier, but when a senator's daughter is kidnapped her abductee sucks him back into crime fighting to avenge his partner's death.
The kidnapper is Gary Soneji (Michael Wincott), a computer science teacher at the child's school. Cross learns that the teacher is obsessed with the famous Lindbergh kidnapping and that, so far, many of his tactics have been tit-for-tat imitations. The plot is much deeper than it seems however, and a Secret Service Agent could be acting alongside Soneji.
Along Came a Spider earned $105 million internationally, nearly quadruple its $28 million budget.
