Harlan Coben’s latest novel, Run Away, is one of those books which you hope stays on the pages of the novel. It is also a novel which kept this reader up until the early hours of the morning, reading that next chapter.
Most parents will remember the day their eldest child set forth into the world we know, either for work or for tertiary study, and commenced their life living away from home. Such was the case with the Greene family. Their eldest left home for University/College studies and disappeared. All the best intentions in the world could not have predicted what would happen to Paige or Simon and Ingrid (her parents) in their hunt to retrieve their daughter from the clutches of a drug dealer. Nor could they have imagined how they could have become the target of a ‘hit man’. Yet they did.
Although some scenarios may be stretching the realm of possibility, which I think makes for a good story, in the context of this story, were acceptable. I thoroughly enjoyed Run Away and will not add any more spoilers into my review.
I think Run Away is a novel which could easily be made into a movie for either the big or little screen.
