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.
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.

I really enjoyed all of the Alex cross books this one was very emotional to me. I don't think you will be disappointed by buying this book or listening to it either.
When John came to the door with the locket to tell Alex they found Ava.
I like hearing the different characters tell the the two parts of the story it's easier to follow along.
Yes the part about the foster child Ava and her drug problems because that touches our 14 year olds today.
This is a must purchase!!!!
The recorded voices telling this take if Alex Cross and are his family are excellent and make the characters come to life. Patterson has done it again, taking the Cross saga just a little bit further through murder, violence and sociopaths, but also through love, family and smart police work. The high levels of police forces needed to solve complex murders becomes quickly obvious to the reader, as are the layers of hierarchy and politics and the harsh criticism of the public. Twists and turns throughout the book and several mysteries at once help complete another great Alex Cross story.
James, will you come to OVER and marry me? How wonderful it would be to have access to your talents! Keep on writing Alex Cross books please!
