    Question Would you kill someone Answer No, of course not Question Would you kill someone to save your child Answer Coben really knows how to balance thrills and character dynamics I found it hard to put Run Away down.Chelsea wrote a great review for this book I think this is a story that will cut to the core of readers with kids I found myself sympathizing so much with Simon Greene as he hunts for his missing daughter His pain and fear felt so real, so visceral, that I was on the edge of my seat It is a book that really affected me on an emotional level, as well as providing all the exciting thrills I seek out in this genre.If you re new to Coben s work, I should point out that he s of a traditional thriller writer By this I mean he favours high octane, high stakes plots, as opposed to the quieter domestic thrillers that have become popular in recent years I m telling you this because I have seen a few comments about the plot being unrealistic , and it definitely is Die Hard than The Girl on the Train.That being said, the relationships between the main players in this book made the story ...

    Simon s eyes stayed locked on the panhandling girl mangling John Lennon s legacy Her hair was matted clumps Her cheekbones were sunken The girl was rail thin, raggedy, dirty, damaged, homeless, lost She was also Simon s daughter Paige Over the years, I ve found myself moved on a deeply emotional level when I read stories about parents trying to save their wayward children This is likely due to the fact I m now a parent myself, and even though my kids are still young and dependent upon me for most everything, I still find myself getting lost in the what ifs that come with having another person s life being your responsibility As children grow and become young adults themselves, at what age is the line drawn where they become dependent on themselves and cut out the middle man And at what point, as a parent, are we supposed to step back and let our kids make their own mistakes vs roaming the ends of the earth to save them from life altering mishaps These are some of the debates that Coben tackles in his latest thriller.Don t get me wrong when I use the term emotional I do not belittle the fact that Run Away is simultaneously a compulsive page turner and a rip roaring adventure that delves deep in the underbelly of every for...

    The fathomless love of a parent is a mysterious tunnel, and nobody really knows where it leads It is this sort of intimacy that Harlan Coben so searchingly explores in this novel.Coben s Runaway grips The author has sculpted a humbling monument to the boundless power and the sorrow of parenthood His novel bleeds unspeakable tenderness, indescribable warmth, and a hard won hope There is a tightness in my chest still, as if all the shock and horror of the last few chapters of this book had strained my heart Days later, I can still feel the tail end of that sweep of a parent s love, radiant and enchanting and than a little troubling.There were many hellish torments that could take death s place, and Simon Green is familiar with most of them.What little color Simon normally sees leeched out of the world when his daughter succumbed to a drug addiction that s wasting her away, as though she s taken the rest of it with her on her way out the door.When Simon sees Paige, months later, panhandling in Central Park, he could no will himself into indifference than he could will himself to stop breathing Where his daughter has been there was naught but a dim shadow of herself, and Simon s yearning to get her back an...

    4.5 stars Wow Wow Wow Harlan Coben, where have you been all of my life Murder was simple if you kept it simple Run Away has all of the elements that I look for in a thriller action, intrigue, danger, secrets and lies, twists and turns It s well written, intricately plotted and kept me on my toes Further, there s a creepy cult, quirky characters, and commentary on popular culture Yes, i...

    Simon Greene and his wife Ingrid live a somewhat privileged middle class life, together with their 3 children Sam, Anya and Paige The kids have had everything that wealth could throw at them, but while mum and dad were busy living their perfect lives, Paige has taken a wrong turning on life s journey, and has fallen into a world of drugs, dealers, criminals and an abusive boyfriend It s a dark and dangerous world hidden from the circles which the Greene s inhabit, but Simon and Ingrid are about to clash head on with a particularly vicious cast of characters, when Paige disappears, and it s clear that she doesn t want to be found.This is Harlan Coben at his best the master at work The slick and entertaining narrative exposes family secrets of enormous proportions, and makes one question how much we really know those closest to us Right from page one the action begins, with New York s Central Park setting the scene And it s here that Simon discovers Paige busking, but she s not in a good place, frail to the point of skeletal, she s just a shadow of her former self A fight ensue...

    4.25 Stars rounded down.A Fast Paced Thrill Ride with Lots of Heart Harlan Coben knows how to to get my attention in order to bring me into a story He uses heart and humor and he writes with real human emotion In addition, he always makes the characters authentic and makes me feel as if I am right there with him The best part for me is that he includes recurring characters in each of his stories, and that make my heart sing and yeah, it makes my eyes fill with these little things called tears Just call me a sap why don t you What can I say, I just love these guys and gals I ve now read every novel Harlan Coben has ever written, and while the Myron Bolitar series is my favorite, some of his standalones rank pretty high with his last one Don t Let Go being my favorite so far perhaps because Detective Nap Dumas reminds me of Myron. lol In his latest Run Away we discover Simon searching for his daughter Paige He and Paige were always so close she was the perfect daughter and then well, you know d...

    4.5 stars.In recent years, Harlan Coben has written some of my favorite thrillers He s one of those authors who skillfully combines rich character development with heart pounding suspense Even his signature Myron Bolitar series meshed humor and sarcasm with suspense.I have been eagerly awaiting the publication of Run Away , Coben s latest thriller for several months, and was excited to get my hands on an advance copy a few days before its release While this won t surpass Home as my favorite of his books, Coben has another terrific book on his hands.One of the worst things a parent must face is when they re unable to save their children from their problems Simon Greene knows this all too well his oldest daughter, Paige, always so studious and creative, fell into a relationship with an older man who got her addicted to drugs Simon and his wife have tried to help Paige free herself from this man and get clean, but they never can fully succeed she always seem to slip right back into his clutches and back in the throes of addiction.It has been a while since Simon has seen his daughter and he worries what the ramifications of that fact may mean But when a friend mentions that he saw Paige playing music in Central Park, Simon tries everything to track her down And when he finally does, he has...

    Another engaging thriller from Harlan Coben, and, as usual in his books, not everything is as it seems Simon Greene is given a tipoff that his estranged, drug addicted daughter is busking in Central Park, so he goes to find her, has an altercation with her junkie boyfriend, and she runs off Simon and his wife try to find her, and so their lives spiral out of c...

    My worst fears were realized when I began reading Run Away It s not the kind of thriller, well, to thrill you every chapter The book got 4 stars simply due to the magnitude of the twists present near the end of the book.The writing is minimalist, but effective The layout of the plot was aesthetically pleasing When the act...

  10. Joey R. says:

    4.5 Stars Over the years Harlan Coben has become one of my top five favorite thriller writers His latest book, Run Away does nothing to diminish that status What I like about Coben is that he tries to anticipate every objection or question a reader might have and answer it with reasonable explanations and realistic plot twists Run Away starts out with the main plot of Simon searching for his missing daughter Paige who has become a severe drug addict who is living with her supplier From this basic story Coben takes the plot places you would never dream of with murders, cults, hit men, and numerous plot twists you never see coming In fact, I was never able to figure out how it all tied together until Coben tied it all together for me at the end Coben might be the most talented writer to ever write in the first person ...
