Ok...I like Patterson, so I tried this book; guessing it would be like all his others. I couldnt even finish it - not because it did not include his normal addictive writing, but more because the plot was one I wasnt interested in. Its about current day Nazis and their attack on rich, powerful Jews who control the world. I definetly respect the horror of the Holocaust, but its just too...too something. It seems to try too hard. Another thing I dont like is when authors use other languages in books and dont translate, or mention in a sidebar way what certain words mean. I AM NOT JEWISH! Should i really have to hunt down a Jew to find out what certain words mean? Yeah, Jews might appreciate it, but dont forget your other faithful readers!!! A translation is deserved; that's my pet peeve! Also, about the Holocaust - I'm tired of only hearing about what it did to the Jews. Many other people and cultures were hurt and though I respect what they've gone through, their pain has overshadowed others who've been forgotten. I personally dont like to read war books or anything of that sort. Well, If thats your thing, try it!

"See How They Run" has a very unusual plot line. The book is about two WWII concentration camp surviors that are trying to prevent the Nazis from terrorizing the world again. David Strauss and Alix Rothchild fly to Germany to retrace David's brother's steps in making his film, The Forth Commandment, and to search for a man named Michael Ben-Iban. For David this might be his chance to find out why his brother was murdered and for Alix the trip was a terror filled and business trip. There are many plot twists that will make you think, "Why didn't I think of that earlier?" James Patterson has masterfully placed history in an exciting mouse chase that will leave you satisfied.

Read the first few chapters and didn't like it very much at all, too many typos and poorly composed sentences.

Early work from him. A bit different, sort of unsettling, and ultimately, not particularly satisfying. Nazis vs. Nazi Hunters in 1980, with too many over-the-top, overly zealous radicals on both sides. In short, not very realistic.

After reading Patterson's later books this one show he was just starting out when he wrote it. I liked his later works better.
