Alex Cross, Run | [James Patterson]

Alex Cross, Run

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....

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.

    "kinda out there"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a book that I found hard to stop thinking about, but the plot and it's twists were a bit far fetched still.

    "Suspenseful New Book by James Patterson"
    If you could sum up Alex Cross, Run in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful Heartbreaking Engrossing


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was of course Alex Cross himself.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer – was your favorite?

    I loved the way they did Nana.


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

    Yes I would have loved to have listened to it in one sitting, but since I only have time to listen on my walks I would have walked forever till the book was done if it was not so cold outside. Still I finished it within the week.


    Any additional comments?

    I would definitely listen to another book written by James Patterson and narrated by Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer.

    "Excellent narrative reading!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Just did not think this story was up to par for the author. Very disappointed with the ending.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The frustration and bad moves of Alex Cross


    What does Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Many different voices. Very well done!


    Could you see Alex Cross, Run being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Most likely a movie would be worse than the book. Hollywood usually does not do a good job


    Any additional comments?

    Just OK story.

    "Devoted Alex Cross fans will love this one!"

    Patterson has got the Alex Cross recipe down cold - and follows it faithfully here. A reliable mix of fascinating bad guys tormenting Cross, Cross's own demons tormenting him and a rich cadre of supporting players who both help and hinder Cross as he fights to get the scent and then follows it like the talented, committed bloodhound that he is.
