ADRENALINE-PACKED RACE — A Review of “Run for Your Life”

When Michael Bennett, NYPD Detective and single father, takes on the task of hunting down a calculating murderer who calls himself The Teacher, he enters a speed-charged, adrenaline-packed race to save the lives of potential victims through the city.

What does The Teacher want? Why is he picking off powerful and arrogant people throughout the city?

Meanwhile, Mike’s kids are falling victim, one by one, to a virulent flu strain, making his days and nights some of the most challenging of his life.

Rushing through the pages, wondering about the identity and motivations of this sadistic killer, I could not stop moving forward until, finally, the answers began unfolding.

James Patterson’s Run for Your Life, co-authored by Michael Ledwidge, culminates with a spell-binding conclusion.

Now I feel exhausted, as if I, too, was chasing the killer. I think that is what makes Patterson’s stories so completely engaging—he brings the reader right into the action with him.

This novel did not hold the same thrill for me as the Women’s Murder Club or the Alex Cross books, but it did earn four stars from me.
