Publisher's Summary

It's often said that when tragedy strikes, the victims were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. But not Harry and Alice French.

Assaulted by masked men looking for a mysterious package and a man named Renshaw, Alice and Harry manage to convince them that there has been a terrible mix-up.

But nothing prepares Alice and Harry for the web they find themselves trapped in after their assailants leave. Especially as Alice hasn't been completely honest.

After Harry is approached by a woman named Ruth who seems to know more than she's letting on, Alice and their baby, Evie, disappear. When Harry realises he's become a prime suspect in their disappearance, he seeks refuge with Ruth and demands answers, knowing keeping out of police clutches is the only way he'll track his family down.

But how safe really are Alice and Evie tucked away in Gloucestershire with the mysterious Renshaw?

    Story
    "I don't get it."
    Has See How They Run put you off other books in this genre?

    No, just off this author and definitely off the narrator. I still cannot really work out why I just spent too many hours waiting for something marginally interesting to happen.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator could possibly have made all the difference.


    Any additional comments?

    Rarely do I buy a book with such good reviews that turns out to be actually so awful that I struggle to finish it. It started off quite well, although the narrator was absolutely awful - the female voices just made me cringe.

    Story
    "Nail biting Thriller I Recommend to All"
    Would you consider the audio edition of See How They Run to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed the audio version of this book, the narrator did a brilliant job of portraying the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    It's taken me a couple of days to review this audio book because I needed some time to digest it. I absolutely LOVE this author's style of writing. From the very first page you are dragged into the heart of the action, and you're not given a moment's reprieve to catch your breath. His characters are so real life, you'll find yourself rooting for them from the first terrifying moment when they are subject to a terrifying break in, right up until the heart stopping climax. Include a very young baby in the mix and you are in for a nail biting time. Tom is a great storyteller, and his writing reminded me a lot of Mark Edwards, another brilliant author of whom I'm a big fan. I'm really looking forward to Tom's next offering. This is a fantastic book that I recommend to all.

    "Brilliant Book"

    I was waiting for ages for this book to be released, and was really hoping after the wait that it would be worth it, and it was. Brilliant story, parts of it had me on the edge of my seat, when i wasn't listening, i was thinking about it and couldn't wait until i could listen again. The book never got boring, and there weren't any slow or dull parts. Need more books like this. Excellent!!

    Story
    "DISAPPOINTING ENDING"
    If you could sum up See How They Run in three words, what would they be?

    Great story, plausible, real people, no silly 'super strong action' heroes. This could happen to any of us although there were a few details which didn't seem reasonable for 2 well educated and intelligent people to have taken. Then again, it could be these decisions were due to the stress they were under, so all in all, not unbelievable


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a 'don't put down' ' story, and extremely well read, although I can't resist a little swipe at the Scots accent!


    What does Kris Dyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Good pronunciation, adequate level of drama in his voice and read very smoothly. Easy and pleasant listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I think so, yes


    Any additional comments?

    Thorughly enjoyable, except for the fizzle out ending. I still don't know what happened to some characters, which is annoying! One of the characters, don't want to say more because of spoiling the plot for other readers, but one character was very weak and certainly didn't add up. I was waiting for an explanation and further revelations, but that just didn't come, which is why the ending was so poor

    "Not to my taste"

    Too much perverted violence based around a weak story plot. Lacks the twists and turns of an enjoyable plot. I gave up in the end and returned it.

    "Perfect holiday read"

    I really enjoyed this book. The story moves along at a good pace and I really enjoyed the late night "one more chapter before sleep" time with this book. Luckily I was on holiday so late nights were no problem. Well worth a credit in my opinion

    "a mobile story with an excellent narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    You do realize a few important things after listening to this book, always bring your mobile, never turn it off, answer all your calls, always keep it charged, always bring the charger and hold on to your mobile for dear life.

    Otherwise the book is good.

    "Good Story"
    What did you like most about See How They Run?

    The plot kept going and kept a good pace.


    What does Kris Dyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    This was my first time listening to Kris Dyer as a narrator. I found him a clear and concise narrator, but sometimes a little monotone. I found the main characters a bit whiney and their anger never really showed


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Reasonable book, reasonable narrator, but nothing to get over excited about

    It's a great book, not too gory, fast moving and extremely interesting, I will certainly look for another of the author's books.

    See how they RUN indeed ..... What a fantastic joy ride this audio book was? Loved it ...Narrator... Writer it well worth more then two credit's if u ask me. Alice and Henry fall down the looking glass thriller! A must definitely listen too straight to the edged cliffhanger ending.

    Story
    "What a dreadful book. One of the worst so called 'thrillers' I've ever laboured through."

    Imagine a bunch of desperate thugs terrorising a young couple and a ruthless chase to catch them on the run as all manner of violent and sadistic things occur. Now add a baby. The most annoying character ever to appear in a book, baby Evie.
    In what I can only assume is one of the least successful attempts at a school writing project ever, we are taken on a terrifying and thrilling journey filled with intrigue and danger with the constant irritation of baby Evie who needs a nappy change or a feed. A vicious and violent attack in this awful storyline, rather than grip and bind the listener to the plot will more than likely be interrupted by another crushingly boring observation on how the mind of a little baby might work. It may even startle or worry her. Bloody fights and vicious gangsters are of less of a concern here than formula milk and regular, undisturbed sleep for Evie. I congratulate the author for becoming a first time parent obviously, but keep your lovely baby observations for another book or maybe a Women's Weekly magazine please.
    My advice to all my fellow Audibles...... Give this a big miss. It fails on every level.

    "Chockfull of Mystery & Suspense"

    This book grabs you immediately and doesn't let go until the very end. There are a lot of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Be prepared for a bit of violence and gore, but it's not gratuitous. The narrator is good and doesn't distract from the story. It's definitely worth a listen.

    The never ending movement of the characters, and the subplots.
