Run for your life…

Sixteen-year-old Claire McBride just witnessed a brutal murder at the hands of someone she knew, someone she thought she could trust. Now she’s alone, afraid and desperate to put as many miles as possible between herself and the killer. Seeing no other options, she flees her home town of Galena, leaving behind everything and everyone she’s ever held dear.

Run for your life…

Carter Emerson's whole world has come crashing down around him. He woke to the news his best friend, Claire has gone missing without a trace, and there’s nothing he can do about it. Finding out her car was abandoned in the busy city of Chicago, he and his brother can't help but fear the worst… With no solid suspects or leads, it looks like Carter’s worst nightmare could come true, and Claire’s disappearance may turn into a cold case.

Run for your life…

With the killer at her heels, Claire has no choice but to leave Carter in the dark. She can’t risk his safety just because she misses the sound of his voice… But will the run of Claire’s life be worth it in the end? Or will her past catch up with her no matter how hard she tries to escape it?

I feel moisture on my face and realize I’m silently crying; my breath hiccupping out of me in frenzied pants. I stuff my cell phone back in my jeans pocket, turn to run and step right on a twig, causing a horrifically loud crack sound to tear through the false calm of the night. Eyes wide with terror, I turn to see recognition dawn on Liam’s face as he sees me there. I let out a strangled yelp and start running frantically back to my car. I send up a silent prayer to whomever might be listening that I make it out of this alive and pump my legs as fast as I can, heading into the forest rather than sticking to the trail. I am banking on the fact that Liam hates the outdoors and doesn’t come here often, whereas I come here with the Emerson boys at least twice a summer. I know these woods. My biggest worries are not tripping over tree roots and the wildlife I might encounter. But as long as I can keep ahead of him, I should be able to reach my car before he can catch me. Or so I keep telling myself as I run faster; the words Run for your life! repeating in my head like some sick nursery rhyme.
