Runner

Author: Patrick Lee Format: Paperback Release Date: 19/06/2014

Runner is a pulse-pounding, A-grade adventure thriller from acclaimed author Patrick Lee. Sam Dryden was done being a hero. But when, acting on instinct, he hides a terrified young girl from a group of well-armed pursuers, his fate is sealed. Eleven-year-old Rachel can't remember much, but she knows she was imprisoned by the men trying to kill her. And that she is important to them. In Dryden, though, Rachel has found the perfect protector. An ex-soldier with the kind of elite military career he's not at liberty to talk about, Dryden's a man well versed in secrets, and driven to do what's right. But hunted and on the run, it's only as Rachel's memory returns that Dryden begins to fully appreciate the scale of the dangers they face. And then only one thing matters: Don't. Get. Caught. Introducing a fantastic new series character, ex-soldier Sam Dryden. Runner is an outstanding high-concept thriller that grips and entertains like your favourite Hollywood action movie. For those who love Lee Child, Simon Toyne and Dan Brown, Patrick Lee's rollercoaster of a thriller is not to be missed. Praise for Runner: Patrick Lee is a huge talent and Runner is his best book yet - breathless, involving, smart, and completely convincing . (Lee Child). Pure adrenaline rush ...an action-packed novel brimming with complex characters as well as genuine heart. Not to be missed . (Lisa Gardner). An amazing, high speed, hi-octane novel than moves faster than most people can read. Rarely is a story both plot driven and character driven, but Runner does this and more . (Nelson DeMille). I'm going to sue Patrick Lee for giving me whiplash: that's how furiously paced this book is. A terrific cast of characters, unrelenting action - strap in and enjoy the ride . (Jesse Kellerman). Patrick Lee lives in Hudsonville, Michigan. He is the author of three previous novels: The Breach (a New York Times Bestseller), Ghost Country, and Deep Sky.

Body-Self Dualism in Contemporary Ethics and Politics

Author: Patrick Lee, Robert P. George Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/09/2009

Profoundly important ethical and political controversies turn on the question of whether biological life is an essential aspect of a human person, or only an extrinsic instrument.

The authors argue that human beings are animal organisms and that their personal identity across time consists in the persistence of the animal organisms they are; they also argue that human beings are essentially rational and free and that there is a radical difference between human beings and other animals; criticize hedonism and hedonistic drug-taking; present detailed defenses of the prolife positions on abortion and euthanasia; and defend the traditional moral position on marriage and sexual acts.
