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.

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.
