Runner by Patrick Lee
As a Lee Child fan I was thrilled to read this book, because Lee Child himself gave it a great review! The main character, Sam Dryden, could be related to Jack Reacher, which is the main character in Lee Child's books. Sam has that same dynamic, strong and extremely competent personality that Jack Reacher has, and I am guessing he is very handsome. The book starts out with Sam running down the boardwalk at 3:00 a.m., where he encounters a young girl in serious trouble. It doesn't take long for him to realize that there is something oddly different about this girl, but since they are being chased by men with high-powered rifles, he can't take the time to figure it out, so they have to go into hiding. The rest of the story keeps you on the edge of your seat, and you begin to realize that nothing is as it seems. I enjoyed every minute of it. If you like fast-paced action, adventure and a different kind of a plot, you will enjoy this book! Read On!
