Will Lee, the hero of the acclaimed New York Times bestsellers Run Before the Wind and Grassroots, has finally established himself at the heart of American government as the respected Senator from his home state of Georgia.

The road to the White House, however, will be more treacherous - and deadly - than Will and his wife, Kate, an associate director in the Central Intelligence Agency, can imagine. A decent, courageous, and principled man, Will soon learns he has more than one opponent with whom he must contend. Thrust into the national spotlight as never before, he becomes the target of clandestine forces from the past who will use all their money and influence to stop him - dead - in his tracks. Now Will isn't just running for president...he's running for his life.

Filled with all the suspense and roller coaster plot twists that have become Stuart Wood's trademark, The Run is this master storyteller at his best.

    Florida Times-Union

  • “[Woods] always delivers a good story, nail-biting action.”

    San Antonio Express-News

    Publishers Weekly

  • “One hell of a good read, and a very serious look at the fragile state of our political system now that it has been turned over to consultants and talking heads. A very enjoyable and accomplished book.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

    " Woods is always good for snappy dialogue and light plots.
    WHOA! only a couple pages of gratuitous sex!!! Either Stone or Woods is slipping.

    I keep wondering how Dino gets all that time off from NYPD. "

    " I did not think I would finish listening to this CD at the beginning, but it grew on me. It is slow but interesting. Characters are shallow but the story is good. I will read other Stone Barrington books. "

    " Entertaining,but predictable. At my age, this is fairly hard to understand, but not too hard. Maybe I'll read again when I'm older and wiser. Definitely not a bad book, but something left me unsatisfied. "
