Run To Me
Run to Me is a non-stop, impossible-to-put-down suspense thriller with riveting twists and turns, as a 'mother and son' go on the run...
It’s been two years since Shyler O’Neil’s beloved son Jesse was killed – but his final moments are as vivid to her now as they were that dreadful day. Suffering from post-traumatic stress, and convinced she did not do enough to protect him, she retreats to an isolated cabin in the woods of northern Maine.
Meanwhile, Zack Ballinger – a ten-year-old boy who has never known a mother’s love – finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. He’s seen too much and is now running for his life.
Fleeing into the woods, Zack soon finds himself at Shyler’s cabin. He’ll take whatever help she can give – even though, for some reason, she keeps calling him Jesse . . .
With the pursuers hot on their heels, ‘mother’ and ‘son’ go on the run. Protecting Zack may well be Shyler’s one chance at redemption.
Either that, or she is the child’s greatest threat . . .
'A tight, taut page-turner that romps along from the opening page' Jaye Ford, author of Beyond Fear
In Hester's solid first novel, a psychological thriller, Shyler, who suffers from untreated PTSD, has retreated to remote Deadwater, Maine, traumatized by a confrontation with five robbers on a bridge that resulted in the death of her five-year-old son, Jesse. Two years after that tragedy, 10-year-old Zach arrives at Shyler's door. Zach, a streetwise orphan fleeing ruthless gangsters determined to silence him because he was an unwitting eyewitness to a recent crime, seizes the chance of salvation that Shyler presents, despite her disturbing insistence on calling him Jesse. The author makes good use of her rustic setting and clearly understands the value of sympathetic protagonists and the thrill of narrow escapes, though the frequency with which Shyler and Zach confound their pursuers does raise serious questions about the competence of the crooks.
