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.

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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Bauermeister | 2/9/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat Morris | 2/2/2014

    " One of my favorite characters is Alex Cross. The only problem with this latest book in his series is that I finished it too quickly. I am already looking forward to the next Alex Cross book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/24/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carole Denise Dixon | 1/20/2014

    " The end came too quick. there were some questions left unanswered....I mean, you can fill in the blanks, but some story as to what happened would be great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wykoffp | 1/7/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 12/25/2013

    " Love Alex Cross!!! This was a great read!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna Mccoy | 12/25/2013

    " This was a typical James Patterson book. I thought it was "okay" but didn't love it. There were too many villains and not enough intrigue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryann | 11/5/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey | 9/2/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana Archie | 7/5/2013

    " I have every book James has written and like most fans prefer the ones he writes solo. This one appears to be as good as his originals but does not quite seem to 'get there' it was a god read but for me seemed to end a bit suddenly. "

    " One of James Patterson's better recent books! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pam | 4/17/2013

    " While I appreciate the customary short chapters and the large than average print, this book had too many story lines and characters that did not grab my attention. I don't know why I keep giving James Patterson another chance with Alex Cross. I think this was the end......... "
