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.

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.

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.

Performance distracted from the overall enjoyment

If you could sum up Alex Cross, Run in three words, what would they be?

Serial murders coincide.

Any additional comments?

I was distracted by the different voices and the sound effects in the narration. I felt like they detracted from my enjoyment of the novel.
