Summary: 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. ~amazon.com  

Review: If you have read this blog with any regularity you know I love Harlan Coben and his books. I've read him for years and I really try not to miss any of his new releases. I pretty much say with each of his books his writing gets sharper and more pointed. Run Away is definitely his best so far and I say that loving his Myron Bolitar series.

What would you do if you saw your daughter in a park when you've spend months looking for her? Would you go after her? What if she ran from you? What if she was a junkie and your wife told you to stop looking for her? Can a parent ever give up on their child? This is what Simon Greene is dealing with as he sees his daughter take off.

Simon quickly learns that nothing is as it seems when Paige goes missing. Why is she missing? What is she caught up in that could be worse that drugs? Is she selling? Did she get mixed up with a cartel? Simon's hunt for his daughter has many down stream effects on his family. He becomes obsessed with finding her.

What ensues is pretty much every parents nightmare but with some twists and turns. No one does twists like Harlan either.  I was pretty much blown away by the ending of this one.

If you've never read Mr. Coben (why not?), Run Away is a great one to start with but beware you will want to read his back list pretty quick!
