The ISBN system was devised beginning in 1967, and books published prior to then don't have "editions" associated with them. It's very similar with movie, music and video game UPCs. It's also possible that a seller listed an item with us and didn't include an ISBN/UPC with the listing. You'll find items like this by clicking this link.

When Cross is called to investigate a massacre-style murder scene, he is shocked to find that the victim is an old friend. Angry, hurt and more determined than ever, Cross begins the hunt for the perpetrators of this cruel crime. He is drawn into a dangerous underworld right in the heart of Washington DC that leads him on a life threatening journey to the Niger Delta where heroin dealing, slave trade and oil and gas theft are rife. At the centre of this terrifying world, Cross finds the Tiger, the psychopathic leader of a fearsome gang of killers who are not what they seem. When the Tiger is on the prowl, he shows no mercy to others. But Alex Cross is hot on his heels in a heart-stopping chase that takes him across Africa and finds him not only hunting for a horrific killer but also fighting for his own survival.Hide synopsis
This starts like a lot of Patterson's books but quickly becomes a whole different ball game. He mixes in the situation in Africa with a murder investigation without becoming a screed. While he sticks to the formula that made him a success it still is a great read.
I love Alex Cross books, but this is by far the best one. It is action packed and very detailed. Some of the details were a little long-winded but I couldn't put this book down until I finished it! I would recommend this to any Alex Cross (or James Patterson) fan.
