Kill Alex Cross was "Patterson at the top of his game" ( Washington Post ). Alex Cross, Run 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.

Book 20

While better than his latest efforts, this book felt like a cut and paste from early books. Two serial killers competing against each other, Detective Cross being set up by a villain, taking the law in his own hands, the grandmother (is she ever going to die?) always having the last word, etc.

The plot is typical Patterson. What makes the audiobook so enjoyable are the narrators . Michael Boatman (who does the voice of Alex Cross) is perfect.

Fast paced intrigue with an ending you could never guess.

The Audiobook CD book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

I listened to the audio book on my way to work and home and it was gripping to listen to the story. The readers who were telling the story were very entertaining, loved the Alex Cross voice. I really enjoy this book and I will be reading this book on vacation.

There is no doubt that the Alex Cross books are entertaining and page turners. This was a well written book, but perhaps I've read too many Alex Cross novels. There is a sameness that bleeds out some of the excitement. The book is good, but just not great. Very formulatic. I'd rate it a 3 on a scale from 1 to 5.
