DON’T LOOK, ALEX CROSS
Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared “industry parties,” bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem’s lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail.
DON’T THINK, ALEX CROSS
But Alex doesn’t have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach. When a third mutilated body is discovered, rumors of three serial killers on the loose send Washington D.C. into an all-out frenzy.
Alex is under so much pressure to solve these three grim cases that he hasn’t noticed that someone else investigating him-someone so obsessed and so twisted that they’ll do anything-ANYTHING- to get the vengeance they require. Alex Cross, Run is James Patterson’s most unrelenting story yet-a white-hot, sensational thrill ride with the most extreme and gripping characters Patterson has ever brought to life.
Author Bio:Want to know about me? Milly Taiden (aka April Angel) was born in the
prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. She grew up
between New York, Florida and Massachusetts. Currently, she resides in New York
City with her husband, bossy young son and their little dog Speedy.
She’s addicted to shopping for shoes, chocolate (but who isn’t?) and Dunkin
I am a doggy mommy, wildlife nut and supporter, writer, author, world traveler, political junkie and a Survivor wannabe…hear that Jeff Probst?
J. K. Accinni was born and raised in Sussex County before moving to Randolph, New Jersey, where she lived with her husband, five dogs and eight rabbits, all rescued and currently resides in Sarasota Florida. Mrs. Accinni’s passion for wildlife conservation has led her all over the world, including three trips to Africa, where ten years ago she and her husband fell in love with a baby elephant named Wendi that had been rescued by the incomparable David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Wendi is the inspiration for the character Tobi , the elephant featured in her fourth book titled Hive.
The character of Caesar is inspired by a real life iconic tiger from Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary in Sarasota. A portion of the proceeds from her third book, Armageddon Cometh, will be donated to the sanctuary in support of the enormous expense required to house and feed the displaced wildlife in their care. Mrs. Accinni invites her readers to visit bigcathabitat.org to view the astounding facility and plan a visit with your family.
Everyone asks authors what motivated them to write their latest book. They usually receive a variety of answers. Some wild, some boring, some obvious and some that feel an overriding passion. So I’m going to take a minute to tell you why I wrote the series, Species Intervention #6609.
Let me caution you…this is not to intentionally gross you out. In pursuit of wildlife conservation, I have traveled around the world exploring my passion. Unfortunately, I can no longer deal with the pain that accompanies my exposure to the creatures I love so much. Do you know someone like that? Your friend that refuses to listen when you relate the news how some scum bag across town shot the neighbor’s dog in the head and buried him in sand up to his neck. How a 21 year old girl had an argument with her roommate and took her 3 week old kittens and slammed them up against the wall, killing them? I know…. you don’t want to read this. And this is mild!
Shockingly, the world across the ocean is even worse. And the Internet has served to acerbate pleasure killings. Now you and your 17 year old ignorant buddies that caught the little monkey, can skin him alive, put him in a pot and proudly show the photos all over the Internet to prove what big boys you are. It’s not much different than the big game hunters that travel to South Africa (Or Texas in the good ole USA) to pay $85,000 to shoot a rare white lion and bring its head home to show what big men they are. The perpetual “who has the biggest penis contest.” I think that’s enough of the atrocity stories. Believe me, I can tell you things that happen in my own state of Florida that will not allow you to sleep at night. Sigh…
There is very little that a single person can do to change Man’s evil behavior toward Earth’s innocent creatures that have so little…merely their lives. Unreasonably, Man feels the justification to steal that from them too.
Enter Species Intervention. My own way of getting even and exercising some of the pain I feel, hopefully raising awareness and entertaining at the same time. Baby and Echo are my adored enigmatic creatures. My characters all have lives that will intersect in book four, Hive. It will be there that my theme starts to truly emerge to shock and intrigue you. (I sure hope.) It will only be at the end of my current book in progress that “God ” will ask himself, “Perhaps it’s time to turn this new world I have created over to women to care for.”
Would the softer, gentler of our species do a better job? I wonder. What would happen to the men? And what challenges and shocks does the new world present to the survivors of the old one? Pick up this well-reviewed series and discover yourself!
200 year saga commencing during Prohibition, encompassing romance and tender love between divergent species, political downfalls and violence of unspeakable order. When you think you have it figured out….WHAM! You won’t see it coming.
