Our favorite moments from Run Away

Simon’s eyes stayed locked on the panhandling girl
Most addicts … had a tale to tell
We can’t bring her back
Someone had punched his little girl

Publisher's summary

A perfect family is shattered when their daughter goes missing in this "brilliantly executed" New York Times best-selling thriller from a "master storyteller" (Providence Sunday Journal).

You've lost your daughter.

She's addicted to drugs and to an abusive boyfriend. And she's made it clear that she doesn't want to be found.

Then, by chance, you see her playing guitar in Central Park. But she's not the girl you remember. This woman is living on the edge, frightened, and clearly in trouble.

You don't stop to think. You approach her, beg her to come home.

She runs.

And you do the only thing a parent can do: You follow her into a dark and dangerous world you never knew existed. Before you know it, both your family and your life are on the line. And in order to protect your daughter from the evils of that world, you must face them head on.

About the Author

New Jersey native Harlan Coben is the author of more than 30 novels including the #1 New York Times best sellers Fool Me Once, The Stranger, Missing You, Six Years, Stay Close, and Hold Tight, as well as the Myron Bolitar series. With over 70 million books in print worldwide, his books are published in 43 languages around the globe.

Harlan is the winner of the Edgar Award, Shamus Award, and Anthony Award—and the first author to win all three. His critically-acclaimed novels have been described as ingenious (New York Times), poignant and insightful (Los Angeles Times), consistently entertaining (Houston Chronicle), and superb (Chicago Tribune).

Many of his novels have been turned into films and television series, both in the US and Europe. They include No Second Chance, Just One Look, and Tell No One (Ne Le Dis a Personne), the latter of which won the Lumière Award for Best Film and was nominated for nine Cesar Awards, winning four. He created and developed two more series for Netflix—Safe and Harlan Coben’s The Five—with a third, The Stranger, in production. Among the awards he’s won are the Vermeil Medal of Honor for contributions to culture and society, the Premio de Novela Negra RBA in Spain, the Grand Prix des lectrices de Elle in France, and the Crime Writers’ Association/ITV3 Bestseller Dagger award for favorite crime novelist in England. Other distinctions include his 2013 induction into the Little League Baseball Hall of Excellence and his membership in the New England Basketball Hall of Fame, from his playing days at Amherst College.

About the Performer

Steven Weber is a native New Yorker who started acting in TV commercials when he was still in elementary school. His breakthrough role came in 1990 as the goofy younger brother and pilot on the NBC sitcom, Wings. Among the notable roles he’s played on stage, television, and film: a cheating boyfriend in the movie, Single White Female, accountant and aspiring producer Leo Bloom in The Producers on Broadway, and an edgy network exec on Aaron Sorkin’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. But it was his portrayal of a depressed-turned-homicidal writer in the miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining that garnered him a Best Actor Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films. Steven has narrated a number of Harlan Coben audiobooks, including Home, Long Lost, Tell No One, and Don’t Let Go. AudioFile praised his fast-paced performance in the latter, calling him an exceptional narrator….Weber’s pleasant, fluid reading becomes more dramatic as the action intensifies. His portrayal of Nap is endearing and witty as he expresses heartbreak, stubbornness, and a desire for revenge.
