    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....

    Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer ?

    Boatman and Boyer, yes...Patterson, probably not


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson again?

    I don't think so


    What three words best describe Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer ’s voice?

    good, listenable,


    Do you think Alex Cross, Run needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, "Run" was quite enough


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, pedestrian, platitudinal, predictable. The chapters involving Ava however, read by Boatman, effectively conveyed to the listener the emotional weight of the Cross family's situation.

    (2621)

    Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics....

    Joanne says: "A completely satisfying listen"
    "Plodding...uninteresting"
