Alex Cross, Run [Hardcover]

I've read "Alex Cross, Run" the book in his Alex Cross series by James Patterson.

Product Description

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.

My Review:

The book opens with Alex Cross raiding Elijah Creem's lavish party full of underage girls, guys, drugs, champagne and uninhabited sex.  Elijah is the #1 top well renowned plastic surgeon and when Alex ruins his fun he is determined to do anything to avoid going to jail.  He has recruited his best friend from college Bergman an owner of an modelling agency to help him in his sick and demented killing games.

Also someone is stalking and hunting Alex and his family while on a killing spree.  He enjoys taunting Alex,  follows him to crime scenes and even provokes him to action for his own sick and twisted pleasure.

Elijah is one sick and perverted man who loves underage girls and he has a game with his friend to up one another.  The crime scenes are pretty brutal in nature.

Joshua is sick and perverted who loves underage boys and his crimes are pretty brutal in nature since he likes to stab a certain area of the anatomy many times in a cruel way.

Guidice is a sick psycho who wants to make Alex suffer before killing him.  His crime scenes are pretty brutal too but not as bad as the other two.  He's out for revenge because he blames Alex for the death of his fiancee.
