How critics view the book:
Publishers’ Weekly writes, “Though the sheer amount of jaw-dropping plot twists is impressive, some do come across as a bit contrived. Still, the breakneck pacing and audaciously intricate story line will have readers on the edge of their seats.”
Kirkus Review writes, “In seeking to extend his formidable range, Coben overreaches: the far-flung complications feel forced and schematic rather than nightmarish. Wait till next year.”
Julia Thompson writes for USA Today, “Harlan Coben’s thriller ‘Run Away’ features family drama and murder at a frenetic pace”.
Jeff Ayers writes for Associated Press, “The book has an array of emotions and an unpredictable outcome.”
