Product Description


"Alex Cross remains James Patterson's signature character, a man who virtually owns the phrase 'high octane' and this outing is no exception." -- Michael Conaghan Belfast Telegraph

Product Description

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


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.


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.


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.

3.0 out of 5 stars AT LEAST IT WASN'T A TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT May 10 2013
By little lady blue TOP 100 REVIEWER
I expected this book was going to be yet another huge disappointment from Mr. Patterson. Considering the last few Alex Cross novels this was not an unrealistic supposition to make. However, as an Alex Cross fan from the very first book, I had to at least try.

While `Alex Cross, Run' is not nearly on par with the very early Alex Cross novels, it does deliver a decent ride for Patterson/Cross fans. There is a modicum of suspense along with the added angst playing out on the Cross family home front. The short, clipped chapters make this a fast-paced easy read as is expected of Mr. Patterson.

In spite of some holes here & there & an omission or two, as a long time fan, this was an OK Alex Cross run.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better stories Feb. 1 2014
By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Book # 20 in the Alex Cross series

This is by far one of the better stories in this series. It focuses on Alex who has featured in countless of novels and puts him in the heat of the action once more trying to solve three hot puzzles of a crime at once. This novel is quite captivating and once I opened it, I was immediately hooked and I simply let myself go along with the adventure to see what would come of it. It has been a long time since I was so captivated in an Alex Cross escapade. I am not surprised this one had a spot on the bestsellers list for many weeks. Anyways it gets high marks from me:).

Mr. Patterson shines in managing the many suspenseful moments and expertly switches perspectives again and again, from stalker to killer to Cross. He writes in his usual way, the first person style when Cross is narrating and in the third with his other characters. The plot is written with precision and is neatly wrapped up, definitely attributes of a master storyteller. Mr. Patterson trademark is front and center: short chapters, a nice balance between Cross’s personal and professional lives, intriguing crimes for the protagonist to solve and complex subplots that do not necessary end well. Well rounded characterization and a jaw-dropper of a conclusion leaving the door open for a subsequent installment. I really can say Mr. Patterson’s pen was in tip top shape……

In a nut shell the mystery in this installment is this:

Cross is tasked with investigating two very different sets of serial killings that are taking place in the Washington area.

At the same time, he is targeted by a stalker, an anonymous blogger who seems to have a grudge against the D.C. Police Department in general and Cross in particular, his main goal is to ruin Cross’s life.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed most of the Alex Cross books and this is no exception. It has its sad points, but it still held my interest. I like the way the problems for Alex are solved. The story didn't lose my interest and all the people I like are featured throughout the storyline. If you enjoy Alex Cross, you will definitely enjoy this book. I recommend it to all readers.

A little more detail, but not overdone, on Ava. The ending for Guidice was to easy! Done just to wrap things up. Possibly one too many story lines But a good read!

4.0 out of 5 stars what is this? May 12 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good character development and fast moving. Brings in the Racial problems without going over the edge about it. Also emphasizes what a nest of poison Wash. D.C. is

Another deeply personal view of Alex Cross, his family, and his struggles to get it right. Emotionally stirring with a quicker than you'd expect ending.
