Cross looked for a drug dealer and found a distributor. In
fact, he found two of them, Dr. Elijah Creem, a noted plastic
surgeon, and his friend, the head of a modeling agency, Josh
Bergman. All the teenage models start with him with their
parents' blessing. After all, their daughters couldn't be
safer than with a gay man, right? But this gay man put them
in pornographic movies while they were high on drugs and champagne,
high enough to have uninhibited sex in front of cameras and
with positioning directions.
Cross busted one of those underage parties. Creem's business
would be ruined as would Bergman's. So the good doctor tried
the thing that had always worked before; he offered Alex Cross
a bribe. To Cross, it was just one more reason to throw the
book at him.
The doctor's business wasn't all that fell apart. His disgusted
wife moved out, taking their two daughters with her. Then,
she filed for a divorce, taking the house and other assets.
Creem was livid. Shortly after that, Cross was called to a
murder scene where the body of a woman was found in the trunk
of her car. She'd been stabbed to death with her long blonde
hair cut off.
Cross was called to another murder scene. This time, the victim
was a young male who'd been shot in the face and had his sex
organs mutilated. His body had then been dumped in the river.
A third murder, another like the first, with a female victim
who'd been cut across the stomach and who'd had long, blonde
hair. But the similarities ended there. Cross had a hunch
there were three different killers at work, but there was
a weird feeling there was a connection somewhere, but where?
Cross, Run is a spine-tingling thriller as the murders
mount up and Cross finds himself dealing with not one and
not two, but three serial killers. The pressure mounts as
Cross also has to deal with a mad stalker who is invading
the sanctity of his home! This is distracting him from his
job, solving homicides in Washington, D. C.
is more convoluted than any James Patterson novel I've ever
had the pleasure to read. The story tells us more about Alex
Cross, the man. The killers are explored in more depth. The
settings in Washington, D. C. and Georgia are vastly different.
Read by Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer, both the killers
and Cross come alive. Listen to Alex Cross, Run and
hold on tight. You're in for a wild, can't-put-it-down ride!
