"Instantly, I mean from the first paragraph, Run‘s language jumps off the page and sears itself into the reader’s consciousness. I opened the typescript at about ten and found that I had to go on reading it until three in the morning, when I reached the final sentence. I don’t think that has ever happened to me before. Original in every way, Run is a masterly redefinition of the crime thriller, one in which Douglas E. Winter has discovered a voice that seems to come up from his heels."

"Run doesn’t run, it fles. The style is terrific. What Winter does here is open a new school: how to writer thrillers with a pace that takes your breath away."
