the theme is never give up even when people and things you love can get hurt or killed. alex cross never gives up hunting the killer the weasel. even though he is threatened his girlfriend is kiddnapped and possibly dead. when his family was threaten and being on the brink of losing his job as a deteective. and Geoffrey never gave up killing people when he was about to get caught. he didnt quit playing his fantesy game even when the other players didnt want him to and were beaking the rules.
