Publisher's Summary

Kill Alex Cross was "Patterson at the top of his game" (Washington Post). Alex Cross, Run, the 20th book in the Alex Cross series, is even better.
Don't look, Alex Cross.
Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties", bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail.
Don't think, Alex Cross.
But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach. When a third mutilated body is discovered, rumors of three serial killers on the loose send Washington D.C. into an all-out frenzy.
Just run.
Alex is under so much pressure to solve these three grim cases that he hasn't noticed that someone else investigating him - someone so obsessed and so twisted that they'll do anything - ANYTHING - to get the vengeance they require. Alex Cross, Run is James Patterson's most unrelenting story yet - a white-hot, sensational thrill ride with the most extreme and gripping characters Patterson has ever brought to life.

James Patterson has parlayed what used to be a great reputation as a good mystery writer into an industry to generate money based on his name. His legacy will be that of a writer who created a business based on a talent that never came to bloom. What a shame. I will not buy another one of his books because they are a watered down waste of time. His latest novels sound like they were written by college or high school students who have not yet learned their craft.

Finally a book without stacks of F bombs!

What did you love best about Alex Cross, Run?

It definitely kept my attention, holding my breath as he was being set up by the bad guy with a grudge.

What did you like best about this story?

The good people resolution.
The inclusion of softer feelings, morals
along with the contrasting very, very bad people.

Have you listened to any of Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I couldn't but I kept it on much longer than I should.

Any additional comments?

I'm just grateful to find an author who can leave out the F bombs which are very degrading to me as the listener. I realize that this would be included in people' regular on the job speech, but I'm glad someone doesn't use it.
