Homicide detective, ex-FBI profiler, highly trained psychologist and cop extraordinaire, Alex Cross is also a grounded, everyday family man. He thinks rationally, calmly, is respectful of others and always gets the killers in the end.
In the bestselling crime novel, "Alex Cross, Run," the same holds true, although the many twists and turns within this compelling story leaves the listener with doubts, most assuredly.
Elijah Creem is a top-ranked plastic surgeon who is highly skilled in his craft, and thus is sought after by many high-end, spare-no-expense patients seeking to cosmetically "improve" what nature gave them.
Creem makes little secret of his preference for wild, indecent "industry parties," which he pays exorbitant amounts of money to put on. He brings in exotic dancers, models and adds a hefty dose of drugs, champagne and a veritable orgy of sexual deliciousness.
It is his sick, perverted taste for young girls that gets him arrested after Detective Alex Cross makes a bust on one of Creem's lavish parties.
Out for revenge, Creem recruits a partner even more demented than he is. Caught up in the frenzy that a string of murders in Washington, D.C. creates, Cross and his partner, Sampson, have little time to think about their safety and the safety of their families. A woman has been found, murdered, in her car, a lock of her hair having been ripped out. Another woman is discovered hanging from a sixth-floor window, sporting a scar across her stomach. Still another body is discovered, also mutilated.
Patterson fans, once again, can expect an action-packed, fast moving experience as they listen to the "Alex Cross, Run" audiobook.

Kill Alex Cross was “Patterson at the top of his game” (Washington Post). Alex Cross, Run is even better.
Dont’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, DC, into an all-out frenzy.
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.
