Summary

Random House present the audiobook edition of Run Away, written by Harlan Coben. The brilliant new thriller from the international best-selling author described by Dan Brown as 'the modern master of the hook and twist'.

You've lost your daughter.

She's addicted to drugs and to an abusive boyfriend. And she's made it clear that she doesn't want to be found.

Then, quite by chance, you see her busking in New York's Central Park.

But she's not the girl you remember. This woman is wasted, frightened and clearly in trouble.

You don't stop to think. You approach her, beg her to come home.

She runs. 

And you follow her into a dark and dangerous world you never knew existed. Where criminal gangs rule, where drugs are the main currency and murder is commonplace.

Now it's your life on the line. And nowhere and no one is safe.

Mid Range Coben

I have read a few of Coben's books before with mixed results but he's definitely an author worthy of attention. I enjoyed this one and while I wouldn't number it among his best it is also far from his worst.

It switches between multiple points of view including the admirably named Simon, a rather odd 'hit' couple and a couple of other characters. They are all well drawn and move the plot along at a decent pace and that plot included a couple of moments that definitely took me aback. Always a good sign in my book.

The narration by Steven Weber is sound making this an enjoyable read overall.

i love Harlan, but i didn't love the narrator

really enjoy Harlan Coben, but the narrator did nit bring this story to life. and i found the female accents in particular irritating. I'll be swapping to hard copy for this one

Another cracker from Mr Coben

Superbly told, addictive, great characters, moral dilemmas, more twists and turns than a twisty- turny-thing. Highly recommended.

Well paced and enjoyable.

This was a really enjoyable listen. Interesting plot, very well told by the narrator, believable characters and never dull. I removed one stop for too much violence. Otherwise excellent.

Poor effort from a great author

Lacking the suspense and WTF moments that a great Coben book contains. Mildly entertaining, but not one of his best.

another great read from the master of suspense

I'm a huge Harlan Coben fan and have read all his books. This one may not be his best but it is still a great read. I never did manage to get all the plots, some which were a bit far fetched but this didn't deter from my enjoyment. I loved most of the characters and they were all well develooed as the story went on except Deedee and Ash. Steven Weber is a fantatic narrator he changes his tone enough you know who is speaking but does try too hard to put on accents which I find annoying with some narrators.
