New York Times bestselling author Patrick Lee recently released an audiobook of his new novel, "Runner."
Sam Dryden was just going out for a run in the night. An ex-Special Forces member haunted by his personal ghosts, his sleepless night soon turns into a crazy adventure. He encounters a 12-year-old girl on the boardwalk, who is terrified and asks for help. Rachel is being pursued by a group of armed men who seem intent on killing her. Dryden agrees to help and learns the girl has been held and drugged by a secret organization within the government - and she was being used for her mind powers. Rachel can barely remember the last two months, but she knows how deadly her pursuers are. It's up to Dryden to help her unravel her past and keep her safe from some very powerful men. This story starts out on a fast pace and just keeps going. There's plenty of action and thrills and Dryden is a cool action hero. Raul Esparza, who is doing the reading for the audio book, does a good job of giving each character their own "voice" but not being over-the-top about it. His reading keeps the book at a good pace. Esparza has appeared on "Medium," "Pushing Daisies" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."
The audiobook is 7 CDs and 8.5 hours long, so it would be best for a long roadtrip. It is $29.99.
