"Patrick Lee is a huge talent and Runner is his best book yet--breathless, involving, smart, and completely convincing." --Lee Child
"Rarely is a story both plot-driven and character-driven, but Runner does this and more. An amazing, high-speed, high-octane novel that moves faster than most people can read. There has to be a better word than 'thriller' to describe Runner. How about thrillingest?" --Nelson DeMille
"Pure adrenaline rush! Finally, an action-packed novel brimming with complex characters as well as genuine heart. Not to be missed." --Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Touch and Go and Catch Me
"I'm going to sue Patrick Lee for giving me whiplash: that's how furiously paced this book is. A terrific cast of characters, unrelenting action--strap in and enjoy the ride." --Jesse Kellerman, author of Sunstroke and Trouble
"This is a thriller done right. It literally begs to be read in one sitting. I said it before and I'll say it again. Patrick Lee is the real deal." --Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Amber Room and The Columbus Affair
"Tension mounts right from the start in this nonstop action-packed narrative....it's a high-tech thriller that's hard to put down." --Library Journal (starred review)
"The action is nonstop and takes place at breakneck speed with no downtime....with this book, he enters the ranks of the best action-thriller writers....Readers who pick up Lee's latest should be prepared to miss their favorite television shows, since they won't put this book down long enough to watch them." --Kirkus Reviews

It's one of those fast moving thrillers where escape from so many impossible situations becomes commonplace - the protagonist, Sam Dryden, having such an unbelievable skill-set enabling him to master everything from machine guns to ......ah.....now that would be telling! His drive to rescue eleven year old Rachel from those who wish her dead, no matter what is thrown at him, is what fuels the story and kept me reading. I quite liked the ending and would read a sequel if one ever materialised.
If you like books that would make good action movies then this is for you. Three and a half stars.
One does wonder whether this is really sci-fi or is it really going on.
In Runner, an ex SF operative is out for a late jog when he bumps into a teenager on the run from something. He helps out and finds that the people after her are very powerful indeed and the young girl has her own hidden secrets. So it’s a chase story that develops into bigger picture that challenges the reader’s perspectives on the storyline they assumed they were following. Like the Breach books, it is slightly daft, but great fun to read and a real page spinner.
