In New York a killer is targeting the rich and socially elite, but with each murder the method is different and descriptions of the killer by witnesses is never the same. Bennett is burning the candle at both ends with trying to catch a killer while trying to do all he can to help with the chaos at home where one after the other of his children comes down with a stomach virus. With his organized Irish nanny's help Michael Bennett goes between home and the hunt for the killer. I was drawn into this thriller at the beginning and loved the book.
A new series by this author that has all the ingredients of murder mystery and attention to detail that readers have come to expect from him.
Keeping his adopted children quiet through a bout of flu and doing the investigation has the main character digging deep within to continue and solve tis one.
Run For Your Live is not a typical "Patterson" book, simply because he didn't write it. Michael Ledwidge is another beginning author taken under Patterson's wing, and he is not up to Patterson's ability. That being said, it is a fairly entertaining, lightweight story worth reading. This time around, there is a little too much concentration on Mike Bennett's kids, but since this is a continuing series, I suggest that readers who are interested will stick with it for a while. The chararacters will have time to develop.
If I had paid hard-cover prices, I would be unhappy, but I'll continue to buy the series in paperback as long as it doesn't take a big downhill turn.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but it wasn't as engaging as the first book. It abandoned the charm and pathos of the Bennett family and focused on seemingly never-ending incidents of insane violence topped off with an absolutely over-the-top ending.
Hopefully, the next books in the series will get back on track.
It is going to take Det. Michael Bennett to finally stop this sicko.

The story is good but the finish is also very unlikely.
