Runner

by Patrick Lee
ISBN:9781250030733

Ex-soldier Sam Dryden is easing into a midnight run when a young girl darts from the shadows, fleeing a shadowy group of men following close behind. She’s desperate but begs Sam to trust that she has a good reason not to go to the police. Instinctively, Sam believes her and helps her escape. Rachel’s memory has been clouded by interrogation drugs, so she doesn’t know exactly whom her pursuers are, but it’s soon evident that their motives are connected to Rachel’s powerful ability to read minds. Hunted by an enemy with seemingly infinite resources,  Dryden strategically employs skills from his past in covert ops, taking Rachel from forest hideout to high-speed chases to track down the tidbits emerging from her memory. But the game changes when Dryden discovers why Rachel is being hunted, and he’ll have to weigh his feelings for her against national security.
