Publisher Description

If Alex Cross stops running, he will die . . . three serial killers are on the loose, and they want revenge.



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 killer, he's called to investigate a second crime. All of Washington, D.C., 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.

"Yet another great storyline with Alex Cross and his family in crisis. I just wish Patterson would make these longer and a bit more in depth. Alls good though. I love alex cross and his daily turmoils at a detective/ psychological whatever he is. Keep the books coming Patterson!"

    " Spoiler alert. Once again Alex Cross and family confront an attack on the family and a death of a person close to them! This book had non-stop action with three active plots. I am wondering if we will see Dr. Creme and Ava come back in some future books. "

    " The previous few Alex Cross books have been a little light on the content and didn't engage me like his originals. This one I am happy to say was one of his best. I read the whole book in two days. It was very satisfying to be that interested again. "

    " I have not enjoyed the recent Alex Cross books nearly as much as Patterson's earlier ones features this character. The three concurrent story lines in this book, while not confusing, seemed to keep Patterson from fully developing any of them fully. "

    " A good quick read. Not as suspenseful or interesting as some of the previous ones. Supposedly Patterson actually wrote this one himself. Maybe he's lost some of his edge since he started outsourcing so much writing. "
