Audible Editor Reviews

The "run" of the title is Senator Will Lee's last-ditch run for the presidency of the United States, as political circumstances force his hand and as his every move is being tracked by a militia assassin. The story is loaded with thrills. But the plot is filled with clichés and farfetched coincidences. Ken Howard delivers the story with a masculine touch, even tempo, and smooth pace. The result is a highbrow adventure novel that will satisfy as long as the listener doesn't ask too many questions.

Publisher's Summary

Will Lee, the hero of the acclaimed New York Times best sellers Run Before the Wind and Grassroots, has finally established himself at the heart of American government as the respected senator from his home state of Georgia.

The road to the White House, however, will be more treacherous, and deadly, than Will and his wife, Kate, an associate director in the Central Intelligence Agency, can imagine. A decent, courageous, and principled man, Will soon learns he has more than one opponent with whom he must contend. Thrust into the national spotlight as never before, he becomes the target of clandestine forces from the past who will use all their money and influence to stop him, dead, in his tracks. Now Will isn't just running for president...he's running for his life.

Filled with all the suspense and roller-coaster plot twists that have become Stuart Woods' trademark, The Run is this master storyteller at his best.

What the Critics Say

"A clever, well-constructed story of political ambition and behind-the-scenes skulduggery that should please not only Woods' fans but anyone who loves good political fiction....A smart, satisfying thriller." (Booklist)

    "The Run"

    This is a good story ruined by a very bad reader. Ken Howard presents a wooden, monotonal and halting reading. Stuart Woods is an excellent writer. This is a pleasant departure from Stone Barrington. A better reader would have save earned this audiobook higher marks.
