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 the killer, he's called to investigate a second crime.
All of Washington, DC, is in a panic, and when a third body is discovered, rumours 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.
loved it . never wanted to leave it down
film would be good some time
Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer ’s performances?
I think it is better when an actual female takes on the voice of a woman - like in MERRY CHRISTMAS ALEX CROSS
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The frustration when Alex was wrongly accused and ended up in a cell
Any additional comments?
I like the fact we see Bree as a detective again in this book and not just Alex's wife (like in the last 2). She was a "super-cop" when he first met her and suddenly, her work wasn't mentioned once they married. Don't like the fact Damien is STILL away from the home (WHY was that ever written in - from a young age too). This is the usual Alex Cross offering - I like the twist where Alex finds himself on the wrong side of the law! I also like the mention of the Charter schools / KIPP schools - well done James!
