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.

    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.

    Boatman and Boyer did an exemplary job in creating believable characters. They really brought Patterson's characters to life.

    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.

    Excellent as always!

    Story

    Yes! This book keeps you on the edge the entire time. Once again I fall in love with the Cross family

    Nana Mama. She is such a character and keeps Alex from forgetting what is important.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Alex punched the hell out of the suspect


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

    I cried. It was so sad when Eva died

    "Cross's personal life is as boring as ever"
    If you could sum up Alex Cross, Run in three words, what would they be?

    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.

    "Not Patterson's Best"

    Too explicit in describing the violence against women. Felt he and co-writer were up against a publisher's deadline. Not a great read.

    Story
    "Ho hum"
    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.

    Story
    "Great Job!"
    Where does Alex Cross, Run rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a really good book. Great narration. Each character had a voice. Great job weaving 2 stories into the main story. Great characters


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Alex Cross, Run?

    The end--can't give it away


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

    They make each character unique beyond the change in voice and inflection.


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

    yes, if I could


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming!!!!
