Run for Home, Paperback Book
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


1985: a man runs for his life - exhausted, wounded, hunted remorselessly by a female assassin known only as The Head Hunter.

At the end, he has just enough energy to spit in her face. 2001: sixteen-year-old Kerry Lumsdon runs across the same terrain.

She runs to win and she runs to forget. When a headless body is found in the wastelands of the Seahills Estate, Detective Inspector Lorraine Hunt is called in to investigate the violent murder case.

Kerry and Lorraine, different ages and from different worlds, come together when Claire Lumsdon, Kerry's sister, is violently kidnapped - the fourth in a series of abductions of young girls.

Headstrong, wilful and convinced the police can't help, Kerry sets out on a frantic search of her own.

But her hunt takes her to a world she never knew existed: a violent underworld; a sixteen year old murder; and, finally, to secrets about her own past which her mother hoped she'd never have to face. And all the time, the clock is ticking for Claire...A gripping thriller from the bestselling author of some of Britain's best crime fiction.

Review by

Quite a readable story. The layers of the characters is quite interesting and often assumption will get you in a wrong mindset!Kerry is 16 and a runner, Lorraine is a detective inspector and they're brought together when one of Kerry's sisters is kidnapped. This scrapes the underbelly of UK society. The end is a bit pat and wraps things up a little too nicely but the characters are decently drawn.
