THE SENSATIONAL AWARD-WINNING THRILLER “IMPRESSIVE AND PROVOCATIVE . . .VASTLY ENTERTAINING.” –San Francisco Chronicle It begins with a savage killing at a suburban Virginia juvenile detention center, but nothing is as it seems. Accused of murder and branded a cop-killer, Nathan Bailey becomes the target of a nationwide manhunt led by homicide Lieutenant Warren Michaels, himself a grieving father. What no one knows is that the real killer is a mob hitman, and that Nathan is his next target.
Alone and desperate, Nathan has nowhere to turn for help but a sharp-tongued radio talk show host who has already pronounced him guilty to her national audience. Thrilling, violent and achingly poignant, Nathan's Run will touch the heart of anyone who's ever faced seemingly impossible odds.
With a New Author’s Note “FAST, INTRIGUING . . . A CLEVER PLOT WITH ENOUGH MENACE TO KEEP READERS ON THE EDGE OF THEIR SEATS.” –Boston Herald “RACES TO A PULSE-POUNDING CONCLUSION.” –Kirkus Reviews “SEE NATHAN RUN. BETTER, READ NATHAN’S RUN. IT’S SERIOUS FUN.”
