Synopsis: A corrupt corporation. Ruthless assassins. Will the family that runs together… die together?

Fifteen-year-old Zach Monaghan has a target on his back. In the witness protection program for his father’s whistleblowing, he’s now run away, back to his old home in Chicago.Zach wants to get back to his friends and to Lindsey, the girl he’d met right before being whisked off in the middle of the night. But escaping his fake identity won’t last long if two contract killers catch up to him…

Big Joe Gorski has climbed the ladder from street thug to tycoon. Now he’s got it all–riches–status–police, and politicians in his pocket. But life at the top is suddenly unsteady and one slip can bring it all down. With a scheming partner, politicians who won’t stay bought and Feds breathing down his neck,Gorski has to move carefully. But being careful goes against his nature. He’s a raging bull and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep what he has … let the bodies fall where they will.

As the ruthless killer draws closer to Zach, surviving the greedy corporate plot may force the whole family to get their hands bloody…

The Runaway is a fast-paced thriller with dizzying twists and turns. If you like non-stop action, high-stakes tension, and large casts of compelling characters, then you’ll love Peter Thompson’s gripping novel.

Great book and entertaining read. I laughed out loud several times! Hilarious.  The writing was good, but the narration adds a certain quality that otherwise would be missed. Narrator Gary Tiedemann plays it perfectly. His characterization was spot on. From clueless teens, mob bosses, eastern European crooks, and goofy goons–It all made for a very entertaining experience. I assure you I would’nt had the same experience without the audiobook. Excellent. Keep your eye on author Peter J. Thompson. Enjoyable characters, creative plots, juicy suspense and point of view. Definitely recommending. 

 

 

 

About the Author: Peter J. Thompson

 

Peter Thompson grew up on the east side of Chicago, in the shadow of the steel mills where the air was sooty and smelled of sulfur. His life wasn’t always so gritty, but the grit and realism finds its way into his thrillers. He has always loved stories of every kind, and one of his joys is finding a way to get inside character’s heads, seeing the world as they see it and feeling their triumphs, pain, and fear. He visualizes his characters when he writes, and they are larger than life in the big screen of his imagination.

 

Before pursuing his passion and becoming a full-time author, he tried his hand at everything from factory work, breaking cement in a construction crew, running his own pizza shop, and he was a well-regarded presence in the mortgage industry for nearly thirty years. When he isn’t writing, Peter loves, spicy food, live music, and exciting and thought-provoking books and movies. He is a fitness buff who loves to spend time with his grown sons and is looking forward to traveling the world and seeking adventures with his lovely partner.

I found this to be a very entertaining book. Most of the space fleet space opera books are great on worldbuilding but lack character development. This one has both. Ex-military Star force pilot Wyatt McCoy and Archaeologist Beth Parker were a good pair to follow. Good action, tension throughout the book. Narrator Jeffery Kafer does a great job as always bringing each character to life.
