Run for Your Life | [James Patterson, Michael Ledwidge]

Run for Your Life

A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing the powerful and the arrogant. His message is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences! For some, it seems that the rich are finally getting what they deserve. For New York's elite, it is a call to terror.

Only one man can tackle such a high-profile case: Detective Mike Bennett. The pressure is enough for anyone, but Mike also has to care for his ten children-all of whom have come down with virulent flu at once!

Discovering a secret pattern in The Teacher's lessons, Detective Bennett realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history.

    "Predictable and shallow"

    I agree with some of the reviews: This is not his best book only 3 stars for Patterson. The story line is not up to Patterson standards, rather dull and predictable. I to believe that it seems like Patterson just wanted to get another book out there and we loyal followers bought in. I'm not saying, don't get it, just don't expect much.

    "Why do I get James Patterson books?"

    Because they are easy to follow and usually keep your attention. This book was just that...fluff to help get through the drive.

    "Intriguing"

    Excitement from start to finish.Thriller. Intriguing,and yet very conceivable. James Patterson, has yet another #1 hit on his hand. This book, once you get started, you will simply not be able to put down. I read the book in less than a week. Good work James, my compliments.
