A riveting, edgy Young Adult thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen with a memorable protagonist who is a mix of Lisbeth Salander and Dexter Morgan.

A twisted murder, a tangle of lies . . . Now Rylee must run for her life. What if you discovered that everything you thought you knew about yourself was a lie? Rylee has spent her life being shuttled from city to city by her parents. She assumes the reasons are normal. But the truth couldn't be more shocking. One day Rylee comes home from school to find the most horrifying thing imaginable — her father dead, with a knife through his heart, and a key clutched in his hand. Her mother's purse is on the counter, but she appears to be long gone. A message in blood is written on the floor . . . RUN.

With her brother in tow, Rylee begins a dark journey that will uncover horrific and chilling crimes and lead her to an unexpected and gruesome discovery and who is behind these horrific crimes. Run is the first book in the Vengeance series, following Rylee as she begins to piece together the story of her life.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 04, 2016 – Not much is left to the imagination in this grisly thriller from Olsen (Envy). High school sophomore Rylee Cassidy and her seven-year-old brother, Hayden, leave home immediately after she comes home from school to discover their stepfather has been killed and their mother is gone. The siblings aren't strangers to life on the road along with their mother, they have been evading a dangerous man for years. As Rylee follows her mother's clues in an attempt to save her and get revenge, Olsen unspools the disturbing details of this man's identity and the siblings' family history through Rylee's pulpy, hard-edged narration ("He'll never get to enjoy his fame the way that I will revel in his death"). Thin on character development and heavy on plot machinations, Olsen's story tends to sensationalize Rylee's mother's horrific past as it digs into the mind of a serial killer. Rylee is unflinching in the face of danger but, as a protagonist, she isn't much else, which leaves the novel reading like the equivalent of a TV procedural. Ages 13 up.

Customer Reviews

Thrilling and not just for teens!

Rylee’s journey is both chilling and engaging as she is forced to search her for the answers in her past to solve the dangerous difficulties upon her. Her skills to survive have been honed in lifetime of “running,” but now she faces these challenges without the support of her family. Gregg Olsen is a master of True Crime and he brings that experience to these new characters and a twisty plot that will leave you breathless…and probably keep you up too late! The start of a great, new series!
