Run For Your Life Giveaway!

"Run For Your Life" by James Patterson (From Hatchette Book Group's Site)

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.

  1. Wow that is simple! My pick is Pennywise from Stephen King's IT
    To this day I hate ALL clowns!

  2. Not an entry ... I just wanted to say this is the first time I've heard of this book. Thanks for the heads up! I've never read this author, but I probably will someday -- I generally like mysteries and thrillers.

  3. That`s easy- Michael Myers from Halloween. I still have nightmares about him!

  4. I would have to go with Jack the Ripper. I loved Patricia Cornwell's research into this creep! It was very well researched and interesting.

  5. None of them really scare me. I'm so totally not brave, so I don't get why I'm not afraid of serial killers... but I'm just not. I love reading about them and watching movies and TV about them, though.

    Actually, in absolute truth, Ted Bundy because it hit very close to home. I grew up in Fla and he abducted/killed one of my mother's best friend's daughters. It was horrible.

    And the terrifying yet surreal memory of that week has never left me after all these years.

    Ps on a lighter note, I follow and would love to win this one. Thanks for the op :)

  7. I like simple entries. I am a huge Patterson fan, so thank you for offering this giveaway.

  16. Of all of the serial killers, Ted Bundy was one of the scariest and creepy persons who thankfully is now dead. James Patterson is one of my favorite authors so I would love to read this book. Please enter me. Thanks
