Publisher's Summary

A perfect family is shattered in Run Away, the thriller from the master of domestic suspense, Harlan Coben.

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.

It's a nail biter!!!!

Harlan Coben takes everyday people and turns them into super humans that will take the chances and go above and beyond for the people they love.
This book deals with so many issues. The number one is how much can your love and responsibilities be tested? Can you still trust when trust is broken? The family portrayed is so dysfunctional. But what comes through is their devotion to each other. In the beginning you don't see it so much. When the protagonist Simon Greene finally finds his missing daughter panhandling in Central Park she wants nothing to do with him. She's strung out on drugs and her equally strung out and abusive boyfriend intervenes to keep him away. But then the boyfriend turns up murdered.
There is another plot going on simultaneously and the connection is not clear in the beginning. The two come together is a crazy twisted climax.
But wait !
The story doesn't end there... The real kick is in the epilogue... Wow! Some secrets should never see the light of day.
This is an Excellent, fast paced thriller that builds momentum the further into the story it gets.
Steven Weber's narration is perfect for this book.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Phenomenal

Typical Coben brilliance. My only regret is that I listened to the entire thing in one day.

not quite ....

.... what i was expecting. i love Coben's writing but this one fell short for me. i forced myself to keep going - it did get more interesting near the end but still wasn't as good as previous suspense novels of his. i'll still buy his next novel though - i haven't fallen off the fan wagon completely.

Typical Coben

Good story and pretty par for the course of you know and/or are familiar with Coben’s work. Fast paced and always leaving something of intrigue and mystery to end a section. Wraps up with a few unforeseen twists and does well to untie all plot knots... :) if you enjoy Harlen’s work, you’ll enjoy this!

Disappointed

All of Coben's audio books are in my Audible library. I am a Coben fan and have been one for many years. RUN AWAY is a good novel, but this one just did not do it for me.

Too Outlandish.

I had stayed away for Coben for awhile, and now I once again know why. While the concept of opiates infecting every family is real, the story itself is just too preposterous. His wife in a coma for weeks without a serious head wound for weeks after a gunshot? From what? Why? At some points, the story should be linear and believable on some level. All good fiction is. No more for me.

Amazing!!!

Excellent story that keeps you gripped until the end. I love love love Steven Weber doing the narration. He is the most animated narrator and you actually believe for a second there are different voices. Love it
