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.

    Tell us about yourself! I am a 69 yr old female. I love books but due to vision limits I now actually don't read much unless I can get large print. I enjoy books that give me a good story line and move forward at a good pace.

    Story
    "Another great book from Patterson"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Alex Cross, Run to be better than the print version?

    For me it is hard to read a printed edition. I have eye problems and I have to have a very strong magnifying glass to read.


    What other book might you compare Alex Cross, Run to and why?

    Merry Christmas Alex. Because they were both great.


    What about Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer ’s performance did you like?

    Yes


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both laugh & cry


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Alex Cross series. And other James Patterson novels.

    Story
    "Too much slashing even for a murder mystery fan"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't think of anyone who might enjoy this book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Humor


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was slow compared to how fast the murders were happening


    What character would you cut from Alex Cross, Run?

    The reporter (Jason)


    Any additional comments?

    Just too sadistic .... reasoning behind the murders earlier (other than the x-wife) might have helped. I just didn't like to story. But I did quit reading before that might have come to light later in the book.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this and all other Alex Cross books.

    Ava's death. Written so well it brought tears to my eyes.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't look to Alex Cross for laughs. I am looking for the scare and suspense. To the best of my recollection this is the first one that made me cry.

    great bad guys


    Any additional comments?

    Always good crime stories, and great villains. But Alex is a boor. He is continuously doing stupid predictable things that complicate his work and annoy at least one reader.
