From the Publisher:
A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing the powerful and the arrogant. His message is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences! For some, it seems that the rich are finally getting what they deserve. For New York’s elite, it is a call to terror.
Only one man can tackle such a high-profile case: Detective Mike Bennett. The pressure is enough for anyone, but Mike also has to care for his 10 children-all of whom have come down with virulent flu at once!
Discovering a secret pattern in The Teacher’s lessons, Detective Bennett realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history. From the #1 bestselling author comes RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, the continuation of his newest, electrifying series.
My Review:
This the first book that I read by James Patterson. I know it’s crazy that I have never read any of his books since he has been around for awhile. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to read one- it was awesome!
I loved his writing style and how fast paced he kept the story going. There was no dull or boring parts in this book. The short chapters were nice as it felt like you were getting through the book really quickly. I read this book in 3 days and stayed up late each night reading to find out what happens next!
I really liked the main character Michael Bennett who is a NYPD cop and single dad with something like 10 kids! He was very likable and I’m looking forward to reading more books in the Michael Bennett series.
The storyline of the book seemed to be something ripped from the headlines and in parts it was hard to believe that people can be so cruel and heartless. It was an action packed storyline that will bring you quickly through the book and actually I was sad to see it end since I really liked it so much! I now want to go out and pick up James Patterson’s other books and give them a try.
This book is definitely well worth reading!
Rating: 9/10
