RUN AWAY – Harlan Coben

Run AwayYour eldest daughter has run away; she does not want to be found. Then you see her in a park, busking. You hardly recognise her, so wasted, so shrunken and filthy is she; but you can’t help yourself reaching out to beg her to come home. Her boyfriend tries to stop you. You punch him, and the crowd turns on you as your daughter flees.

So begins a father’s nightmare search.

Simon Greene is not persuaded by his wife, to leave their daughter alone to the drugged existence she has chosen. After all, they have tried the rehab route before to no avail. But, seeing his determination, she reluctantly comes along to help find her. Gunfire in a filthy tenement block erupts. That’s when his world shatters into even smaller pieces.

Secrets. Just how shocked is he to find who is keeping secrets from him, and how far will he go to keep secrets from even his own nearest and dearest?

More importantly, would he kill to protect them?

And who is murdering young men all over the USA and what connection do they have to an isolated cult known as The Truth? And to Simon’s daughter?

This is another top-notch Coben twister I could not put down.
