    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. 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....

    If you could sum up Alex Cross, Run in three words, what would they be?

    Serial murders coincide.


    Any additional comments?

    I was distracted by the different voices and the sound effects in the narration. I felt like they detracted from my enjoyment of the novel.

    Nora Kelly, a young archaeologist in Santa Fe, receives a letter written 16 years ago, yet mysteriously mailed only recently. In it her father, long believed dead, hints at a fantastic discovery that will make him famous and rich - the lost city of an ancient civilization that suddenly vanished a thousand years ago. Now Nora is leading an expedition into a harsh, remote corner of Utah's canyon country, but what she unearths will be the newest of horrors.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I'm an archaeologist who worked summers as wrangler and does a lot of backpacking for fun. This book promised all three! The story was interesting and fast paced; it was fun to listen to. The sad thing is that the inaccuracies in archaeological work, horse behavior, and backpacking practices were so great that it really detracted from the story. I could tell that the authors had done a little research, but there were gross errors and inaccuracies that anyone who had put some real time in the research process (or who had let someone with experience give notes on the manuscript) could have easily put to rights. I was left rolling my eyes in places and laughing at inappropriate moments.

    If you can appreciate the story as pure fiction and can sidestep the mistakes, this one's for you. Don't look for a serious treatment of archaeology!
