Publisher's Summary

Detective Michael Bennett is back and the race is on to catch a deadly killer terrorising New York.

The Teacher has a meticulous and calculated plan. Cold-hearted and cunning, no one knows who he is or where he came from. Until now. Now it is time for everyone to learn his name as he teaches New York a lesson it will never forget.

Intent on exacting revenge and causing mass hysteria, he embarks on the worst killing spree the city has ever seen. The whole New York Police Department is tested to its limits, none more so than Detective Michael Bennett. As the Teacher leads him on a terrifying chase, Bennett follows in his tracks but just as he seems to be on the brink of a breakthrough, he is pulled deeper and deeper into an unfolding terror. The killer has one more victim in his sights and it brings Bennett's investigation frighteningly close to home.

Lost in the story

Although I have read a fair amount of James Patterson's books, this is the first time I have listened to one. I really enjoy the genre that James Patterson writes in, and he is a master of this one.

But listening takes it to another level. One gets so much more caught up in the scenario that its hard to break out of it and carry on with mundane tasks. The two narrators were excellent, and the voice of the serial killer was so creepy, that when I heard a similar voice on a documentary program the other evening, I changed channels !

I enjoyed the normality of Michael Bennett's life in contrast to the one he has to face in his day to day job, and will certainly continue with the series.

A well deserved 5 star rating on all counts

so glad Patterson and co create a new character

as an Patterson fan, but mainly Alex cross and wmc series. this is a great series and found it excellent. I'm not a fan of some of his churning out, but three guaranteed good series are Alex cross,wmc and the Bennett series.

Great story

Where does Run For Your Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Really enjoyed this book and the other books in the series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Run For Your Life?

There were lots of moments when you did not know what was going to happen next but as well as that there was the theme that runs through the series of the importance of his family, this stands it apart from other crime series which just focus on the violence.

What about Bobby Cannavale and Dion Graham ’s performance did you like?

I was also well read

Quite Good!

Not a bad book to listen to. A story, full of fire, speed, adrenalin; and to the very end, love, honour and patriotism.

Great voices

It was great having two readers doing the voices. Mike Bennett and the teacher were on point
