Publisher Comments:

A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing the powerful, the arrogant, the don't-give-a-darnst-about-anyone rich. For some New Yorkers it seems that the rich were getting what they deserve at last. For New York's social elite, it is a call to chaos and terror. The Teacher's message to the wealthy is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences!

Detective Mike Bennett is assigned the case. Managing the pressure from his Commissioner, the Mayor, and the New York media would be enough for anyone, but Mike also has to care for his 10 children-who are all under 12 and who all have the flu!

Detective Bennett discovers a secret pattern in the Teacher's lessons-and realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history. From the #1 bestselling author who introduced readers to Alex Cross and the Women's Murder Club-comes the continuation of his newest, electrifying series. Run for Your Life is his most heart-stopping thriller yet.

Another thriller from James Patterson...another Michael Bennett story paced from the first page. Michael Bennett doesn't seem to catch a break at home or at work. His 10 kids all came down with the flu, but fortunately he had the help of his nanny and father. The killer definitely knew how to leave his mark and never mess with one of Michael Bennett's kids! action packed, another great book!

Much like all James Patterson books, "Run for Your LIfe" is a non-stop thriller from the first word and pins you to the seats until the last. I mean really, we all know James Patterson has never written anything less - and this book is no exception. After his wife dies, Mike Bennett, finds himself the recipient of difficult times. He is now a single parent left to raise his ten children with only the help of two people: his Irish nanny, Mary Catherine...and his father, thank God. After a rough hostage negotiation, exhausting all his resources, Mike Bennett finds his hard work for naught...the culprit gets shot. With the media about to descend upon him, and all the paperwork that follows, he looks forward to the few hours of rest-and-relaxation before that problem arrives. Unfortunately, an epidemic hits his family and all his kids have the flu - so there will be no rest for the weary. The following morning, a call comes in from the boss asking Mike Bennett to lead an investigation to stop a killer. This killer is set on teaching the city a lesson, even if it kills him...or them. But this killer kills with an agenda and the lesson is about manners. The book offers a nail-bitting twist that most won't see coming.
