Alex Cross, Run (Alex Cross, #20)
Feb 25, 2013
I went back and forth between 2 and 3 stars on this one. There were three cases going on at the same time....a bit overkill - no pun intended. I really found only one case even remotely interesting and that was the killer who was specifically targeting Alex Cross. There was a shocking conclusion to this particular case (not to reveal anything but I am not totally convinced this person is really gone - especially making a big deal of no dental records for ID.) Although we knew why Ron targeted Alex Cross, we never found out the WHY this person killed the other women. The book didn't fully flesh out his motives and background because it was too focused on simulaneously telling about the other two murderers. I found the Dr. Creem and his sidekick Josh too disturbing - sexual gratification and gore for no reason. No real story with these guys - just two disturbed individuals and I had to be the unfortunate reader of their actions. I am kind of surprised that James Patterson didn't have a co-writer for this book - someone else I could blame for the poor writing and plot development. And, I will add....his books are getting more expensive - not getting the value for the dollar either.
