Run Away by Harlan Coben
Harlan Coben’s books can best be described as literary whiplash.
Run Away starts with Simon, a desperate father, searching for his estranged daughter who has been seen performing for change in Central Park. What starts as a father, trying to help his daughter turns into a spiraling dark path down a road most people couldn’t fathom.
The thing I appreciate most about Coben’s writing is his pacing. Not only does Run Away twist and turn, but moves at a breathless pace. There is no time to regain your footing before you’re pulled into another direction - trapezing the reader on a chase for answers right alongside the characters.
I’ve been a fan of Harlan Coben for many years, and his novels never cease to amaze me. Run Away is no exception. Fast paced and full of twists, Coben is a master of drama and thrill.
