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.

    "Another solid Alex Cross story"

    I think I've read all of the books in the Alex Cross series and this 20th book in the series didn't disappoint. Fast moving, held my interest and enhanced my daily commute. Not a blockbuster, and not as good as some of the previous books in the series but still a good solid listen. If you haven't read anything else in the series, I recommend you start at the beginning with Along Came a Spider.

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

    I really enjoyed all of the Alex cross books this one was very emotional to me. I don't think you will be disappointed by buying this book or listening to it either.


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

    When John came to the door with the locket to tell Alex they found Ava.


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

    I like hearing the different characters tell the the two parts of the story it's easier to follow along.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes the part about the foster child Ava and her drug problems because that touches our 14 year olds today.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must purchase!!!!

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

    I like the audio edition because it allows me to listen on the go when I don't have time to sit down and read so it is better than the print edition that respect.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot had me wondering how long before they eventually got caught.


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

    They had very good performances.


    Any additional comments?

    This story wasn't a mystery as far as a "whodunnit" but it was interesting to see how far the villains would be able to take their nefarious plot until they would be caught by Alex Cross.
