"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, by chance, you see her playing guitar in Central Park. But she's not the girl you remember. This woman is living on the edge, frightened, and clearly in trouble. You don't stop to think. You approach her, beg her to come home. She runs. And you do the only thing a parent can do: you follow her into a dark and dangerous world you never knew existed. Before you know it, both your family and your life are on the line. And in order to protect your daughter from the evils of that world, you must face them head on"--

quick and easy read that was well paced - he's back on his game in this one even if it was somewhat predictable...

Sorry.....usually like this author but slogged thru 222 pages and finally closed the book.
Just didn't seem to care about the characters and story.

Harlan Coben's latest novel is a typical example of his stand alone work. First, a plot line with so many twists and turns that you'll actually smile at the subterfuge. Second, a cast of likable characters that try to figure out what is happening and why. And third, just when you think it's over, the epilogue adds another twist. Corben's natural tendency to make toward smart and pithy dialogue is also in evidence. His trademark ability to move the plot at a page turning pace makes this a good, if not deep read. Fans of his Myron Bolitar series will note an obscure reference to that body of work, too.

not my favourite by this author, but enjoyable. Offers a peek at how circumstances can pull an ordinary person from an ordinary family into extraordinary and frightening situations. Very twisty.

As a Harlan Coben fan, I found this book to be convoluted (?) and often found myself thinking where is the essence of the plot going? Secrets abound and the main characters become buried in senseless violence to what real end, I thought. This is one Coben book that I would not recommend - the first one that I nixed.

As one of my favorite authors, I enjoyed reading Run Away. It held my interest throughout. He does an excellent job of bringing his characters to life. His writing style keeps the reader glued.

The reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the disappointing ending; it presented as though Corben wasn't quite how to end the story.

Well done Mr. Coben. You're back in the saddle again!!!
Fast quick and insightful. I have a feeling that you might
have a clue as to how to get America out of this drug
haze!!!
