Fantastic gripping book, page by page! Although having read all of Patterson's books featuring Nypd supercop Michael Bennett, I'd have to say Run For Your Life was the best of the lot! Also have to note if their was one book that they should make a major motion picture of, it would have to be this one as well.
After the outcome of the crimes of the first book in this series Step On A Crack were said and done it didn't mean that Nypd cop Mike Bennett could simply live life with his brood of a family of 10 and live happily ever after...no unfortunatly for Bennett, he finds himself after trying to desperatly try to lure a whacked out druglord out of his family's apartment, and holding his own entire family hostage he is now trying to track down who i will refer to as the most vicious killer in Patterson's books yet who simply calls himself 'The Teacher'.
The teacher is coldly and caliculatingly going from one 'rich' business to another mowing down a bunch of snobby rich elite citizens of New York who have wronged him in the past. Aside from dealing at home with not one but all of the Bennett children suffering from a flue epidemic that has gripped The Bennett household, Mike has to once again go to rescue and be the supercop of the Nypd that he is known for putting his own family at stake! So for this book all Ny residents must remember their manners or be prepared to face the wrath of The Teacher!
A fantastic page turner from the beginning to end..sadly now that i have read the whole Bennett series i lie in await for Patterson to write the next chapter in the Bennett saga!
