9780060191870: The Run

New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods continues to enthrall readers from coast to coast with his fast-paced, gripping stories and intriguing characters that have left his millions of fans clamoring for more. In his latest novel, this inventive writer brings back one of his most popular characters in a stunning thriller of politics, power, passion, and revenge.

Will Lee, the hero of the acclaimed national bestsellers Run Before the Wind and Grassroots, has finally established himself at the heart of American government as the respected senator from his home state of Georgia. Then a cruel stroke of fate thrusts him onto the national stage, well before he expects to be and long before he is ready for a national campaign.

The road to the White House, however, will be more treacherous than Will and Kate, his intelligent, strikingly beautiful wife and an associate director in the Central Intelligence Agency, can imagine. A decent, courageous, and principled man, Will soon learns he has more than one opponent with whom he must contend. Thrust into the national spotlight as never before, he becomes the target of clandestine forces from the past that will use all their money and influence to stop him--dead--in his tracks. Now Will isn't just running for president...he's running for his life.

Filled with all the suspense and rollercoaster plot twists that have become Stuart Woods's trademork, The Run is this master storyteller at his page-turning best.

Review:

Stuart Woods's lean, taut thrillers typically feature a helping of Hollywood glitz along with a suave, sophisticated hero who gets his man and usually the girl, too. His newest is a convincing variation on that formula, featuring an eminently decent, likable hero we've met before in a couple of legal thrillers ( Run Before the Wind, Grass Roots). Now Will Lee is a senator from Georgia with somewhat ambivalent aspirations to the presidency; think Bill Clinton with a stronger moral center and a more conventional marriage, to a smart, sexy wife named Kate, who happens to be a high-ranking CIA executive. When the sitting vice president, who's slated to be the party's standard-bearer in the upcoming election, tells Will in confidence that he's just been diagnosed with early Alzheimer's disease, Will decides to make the run of the title. That's good news for an imprisoned former CIA agent (think Aldrich Ames) who was Kate Lee's mentor in the agency; he knows his only possible chance for a pardon is Will's election, and he has enough dirt on the senator's rivals to blackmail them into getting out of the way. Throw in a right-wing fanatic with a long-standing grudge against Will and a determination to assassinate him before he can make it to the White House, and you have all the ingredients for a successful run at the bestseller list. But while Woods's many fans will cheer for both the author and his protagonist, that may not be enough to vault this one to the top; Will doesn't seem to have the requisite fire in the belly, and neither does Woods in what is ultimately a fairly tepid read. --Jane Adams
