Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they’ve failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up.
Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices: the girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
Sincere thanks to the Thomas Nelson & Zondervan Fiction Guild for providing me with a complimentary copy to read and review. Opinions and thoughts are 100% my own, and are in no way influenced by the author or publisher.
If I Run was very well written – just as all of Terri Blackstock’s books are – but unfortunately this book left the reader on a “cliffhanger”, and I absolutely detest that when reading a book! (I took off a full star, just for that reason.)
I understand that authors (as well as readers) enjoy having a series … I am one of them … however I believe that each book should be able to be read as a stand-alone book, with hints as to what is to come in the sequel. When a book leaves me with huge plot points that have not been answered, it makes me a very disappointed reader.
With that being said, I truly enjoyed the story and I believe it will end up being a great series. Terri Blackstock has a way of writing that pulls you into the story, and it was one of those books that I found hard to put down at times.
So, if you are unlike me and don’t mind waiting for the next in the series, you will probably love this book!
