Benji Golden works in his family’s struggling mom-and-pop business above a twenty-four-hour diner on Broadway and 103rd Street. Golden Legal Services, a private detective agency, was started by Benji’s hero-cop father. The business is now run by Benji’s mother, who used to be the only Jewish pole dancer in New York City, and is staffed by Lovely Rita, an eye-popping computer wizard and a former lap dancer.

Baby-faced Benji—who is exactly one-quarter-inch shy of five foot six, weighs a buck thirty-seven, and answers to the nickname “Bunny”—specializes in tracking down teen runaways. One day, when a lawyer in fancy shoes arrives from Park Avenue’s classiest law firm offering a job and lots of money, Benji and his mother can’t say no.

Bruce Weiner is a senior at prestigious Canterbury College. A client of the firm has bestowed a considerable inheritance on Bruce, but Bruce has gone missing, and it’s up to Benji to find him. One murder later, Benji finds himself on a dangerous investigation that will take him to the highly secretive core of the most powerful city on earth.

Runaway Man delivers all that a David Handler novel promises: smart humor, a thrilling and sexy story, and characters you won’t soon forget.

Quotes & Awards

  • “David Handler is so good at writing one smart, funny page-turner after another that he makes it look easy…Grab Runaway Man. I promise it’ll grab you right back.”

    Harlan Coben

  • “David Handler is the master of the sly, comedic mystery. Runaway Man is his opus. The streets of Manhattan dazzle, the perfect crime isn’t and Benji Golden, a would-be actor with a nose for finding missing kids takes on the challenge of his career. This story will grip you and break your heart Handler-style.”

    Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of The Shoemaker’s Wife

  • “A new novel by David Handler means a lost weekend. He is a master storyteller who starts with a character you want to know everything about and leads you into taut, unputdownable suspense. He had me on page one with the distinct voice of Benji Golden. Trademark Handler humor, warmth, and insight into the darkest human behavior kept me reading till the devastating and bone-chilling end.”

    Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author of Little Night

  • Runaway Man is a stellar beginning to what I hope will be a long series. Benji Golden is one tough and congenitally adorable private eye. He’s savvy, smart, and droll—an altogether splendid narrator. David Handler pulls off simultaneous suspense and wit with great deftness. And wow, that surprise ending!”

    Susan Isaacs, New York Times bestselling author of Compromising Positions and Goldberg Variations

  • “This promising first in a new PI series from Handler (The Snow White Christmas Cookie and eight other Berger and Mitry mysteries) introduces Ben ‘Benji’ Golden of Golden Legal Services…Benji holds his own with the big shots and a skilled professional killer in this auspicious and amusing debut.”
