Check Out Raul Esparza Narrating RUNNER! #ad

When I received an email about featuring the new audio book RUNNER, an exciting thriller by New York Times Bestseller, Patrick Lee, I knew it was an opportunity I wanted to jump on since the CDs are narrated by Broadway sensation & 4 time Tony Award nominee, Raul Esparza, who is currently co-starring on Law & Order: SVU….theatre AND Law & Order?? 2 of my favorite things?? Heck yes! 😉

The audiobook came out in February, & I have just completed it. All I can say is WOW. It is powerful, intense. Runner tells the story of Sam Dryden, ex-Special Forces, who lives a quiet life in a small town on the coast of Southern California. Out for a run in the middle of the night, he encounters a young girl on the seaside boardwalk. Barefoot and terrified, she’s running from a group of heavily armed men with one clear goal – to kill her.
Dryden learns that the twelve-year old can only remember the past two months, during which she’s been kept in a secret prison by forces within the government. Beyond her own name, Rachel, she knows only that she has a skill that makes her very dangerous to these men and the people in charge of them. Dryden, who lost his wife and young daughter in an accident, agrees to help Rachel try to unravel her own past and make sense of it, and to protect her from the people who are moving heaven and earth to find them both.


Although Dryden is only one man, he’s a man with extraordinary skills and experience – as a Ranger, a Delta, and five years doing off-the-book black opps with an elite team. However, as he slowly begins to discover, the highly trained forces on their heels are only part of the danger they must face, because there’s something else in Rachel’s past, something more dangerous, more deadly, than Dryden can even imagine.

Esparza is such a perfect pick to read this novel. His tone can be rough, & his high energy adds to suspenseful pacing, making an already exciting read even more so. To hear for yourself, check out the audio clip here & order your own copy via Lee’s web-site to get enthralled in HERE!

(*Disclosure: While all opinions are always my own, I received a copy of RUNNER for this feature.)

    This looks intense! Probably a great audio book to listen to while driving, as it would probably keep me awake!
