Publisher's Summary

If Alex Cross stops running, he will die...three serial killers are on the loose, and they want revenge.

Detective Alex Cross arrests renowned plastic surgeon Elijah Creem for sleeping with teenage girls. Now, his life ruined, Creem is out of jail, and he's made sure that no one will recognize him - by giving himself a new face. 

A young woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window, and Alex is called to the scene. The victim recently gave birth, but the baby is nowhere to be found. Before Alex can begin searching for the missing newborn and killer, he's called to investigate a second crime. All of Washington, D.C., is in a panic, and when a third body is discovered, rumors of three serial killers send the city into an all-out frenzy.

Alex's investigations are going nowhere, and he's too focused on the cases to notice that someone has been watching him - and will stop at nothing until he's dead. 

With white-hot speed, relentless drama, and hairpin turns, Alex Cross, Run is James Patterson's ultimate thrill ride.

Pretty OK

It is what it is: not great literature, but typical Ale Cross fare. If you are into Cross, you'll like it. There are t, three serial killers, one with a grudge against our hero and a druggie street urchin who's become part of the family. Both complicate Cross' life. Fast paced; lots of action. The bad guy you really hate is the one who plays a journalist, then becomes a really, really bad dude in the last half hour. Patterson must have a twisted mind. I liked this one enough to peek at #21.

creepy and boring

Would you try another book from James Patterson and/or Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer ?

This is a mystery without any mystery. The serial killers were known from the start, and they were preposterous. The killers were not enough to make a book, so the author told other stories -- a foster daughter's tribulations and an over-the-top reporter trying to get revenge on Cross for a wrong he wrongly blamed on him. None of it worked. I did not finish the book. The narrators were fine, but I would not read Patterson again.
