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 killer has one more victim in his sights and it brings Bennett's investigation frighteningly close to home. With only one man standing in his way, how far will the Teacher go to complete what he set out to do? And at what price?Read Less
As with most of James Patterson's books, it is more wordy than necessary although still pretty good.
He also has the tendency, agin as in most of his books. to have more than one plot which can be confusing

Couldn't put it down
This book was excellent! I could not put it down. I started reading it while on a road trip. I read until I fell asleep with it. I can't wait to read another of his books.

Think twice-Be nice
Confined at the airport, I combed the paperback bestsellers, not particularly in the read mode, I selected the #1 James Patterson/Michael Ledwidge novel "Run", (first JP novel for me). Detective Michael Bennett is the new protagonist. Newly widowed, Michael is now sole caretaker of some 10 foster children rife with the flu, compounding this, his credentials are a ticket to lead a task force tracking an insanely prolific murderer "The Teacher" who seemingly kills randomly. An engrossing novel and page turner, although some of the twists are hauntingly familiar. I prefer my protags a little less saintly than Michael, even flawed, but a fine worthy novel. good read.

This book introduces us to a new Detective. I like him. He's really hard headed and has to get the bad guy. The serial killer likes to do his deed in broad daylight with lots of witnesses. A real gem, with no particular connection between the victims and can kill one or more in a day. Good reading and the ending is really action packed.
