LoveReading View on Run Away

Does a Harlan Coben novel really need an introduction… if you’ve not read this wordsmith’s work before then yes, of course it does! I have to say that I am never disappointed, his are thrilling novels that you can completely disappear into as they spear emotions and provoke thoughts. In Run Away a father searches for his daughter, she ran, and he has been searching ever since, when he finds her, he and the rest of his much-loved family find themselves in terrible danger. The first chapter snared my imagination, you know when you fall so deeply into a book that nothing else exists, well that was me. Each character dove into my awareness, so clearly defined, I could hear them and feel for them, even if I feared them. I didn’t want to stop reading and so waved hello to the very early hours (tip: start in good time if you don’t want to pull an all-nighter!). Run Away is a pure, addictive reading feast for the eyes and mind, if you haven’t yet tried A Harlan Coben, now is the perfect time.

Run Away Synopsis

YOU'VE LOST YOUR DAUGHTER. She's addicted to drugs and to an abusive boyfriend. You haven't seen her in six months. Then you find her busking in New York's Central Park. But she's not the girl you remember. This woman is frail, filthy, terrified, and in more trouble than you ever imagined. You don't stop to think. You approach her. You beg her to come home. SHE RUNS. You follow. What choice do you have? And as you descend into the dark, dangerous world she's lost herself in, you quickly find yourself out of your depths. Down here, no-one is safe - and now both of you might never make it out alive...
