“Simon’s eyes stayed locked on the panhandling girl mangling John Lennon’s legacy. Her hair was matted clumps. Her cheekbones were sunken. The girl was rail-thin, raggedy, dirty, damaged, homeless, lost. She was also Simon’s daughter Paige.”
Harlan Coben is one prolific writer. In Run Away we meet a family full of heart ache. A family with a daughter, while not dead, is a much as dead with her addiction and abusive boyfriend. We see this family face the question about how far would you go to save your child…would you commit murder?
As you would expect from author Coben, this novel grabs you early and holds on. You become part of an upstanding family who are forced into a very dark and dangerous world, a world that will test their resilience.
