Will Lee, the hero of the acclaimed New York Times best sellers 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 Woods' trademark, The Run is this master storyteller at his best.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judith Wrinkle | 1/23/2014

    " Not so interesting to me, as I am not into boating. Ad lot of adjectives, too many for my liking. Much about boating, and though a decent mystery, too much boating info for my interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny | 1/19/2014

    " This book and Chiefs are by far his best books and "Run Before the Wind" is my favorite. Will Lee is also my favorite of all Woods' main characters. In this novel "A young law student visiting his grandfather in Ireland inadvertently becomes involved with the Irish Republican Army." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 1/5/2014

    " This one has grabbed me right away! I always love Stuart Woods and this was one of his original works and you can totally tell a difference. I can't wait to continue reading about this character - Will Lee. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna Schmitt | 12/18/2013

    " This book was ok, just not as face-paced or action-packed as I like for a suspense novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin L. | 12/16/2013

    " This book began somewhat slowly, but I'm glad I chose to see it through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 12/13/2013

    " I enjoyed this book - just enough details about sailing without being overly heavy on technical jargon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry | 12/7/2013

    " Very good book. Complex story about a young man on a long trip in Europe travelling, sailing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kt. | 11/20/2013

    " Will Lee series. VERY interesting voyeuristic view of an election. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Owosina | 7/30/2013

    " One of the better Stuart Woods books I've read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 4/24/2013

    " 2 1/2 out of 4 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike French | 11/7/2012

    " Chiefs was one of the first Stuart Woods I read. I loved it and I loved this one also. Going to read the entire Will Lee series now as I have read all the other series. Stone Barringtonis my favorite, but Will Lee is a close second! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenda L | 8/18/2012

    " This is one of the earlier books by Stuart Woods ... this is about Will Lee's father. A novel full of suspense and high adventure by one of the greatest story tellers there is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita L | 8/11/2012

    " A fun read - written a few years back. Yachting, shipbuilding,Irish conflicts, terrorist activity, young guy in over his head, lots of good stuff. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debra Walke | 6/9/2012

    " I stopped halfway through this book. Boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Vale | 5/17/2012

    " One of Woods earlier books, it really is a delight....fun, adventuresome...he surely put more time into writing this then later works... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 2/27/2012

    " I liked this book because it combined my love of the sea and my need for fast paced action. You get a first hand look at what goes into those big sailboats along with international criminals trying to kill you and a mysterious helper. Enjoy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 1/25/2012

    " The most consistently good of his many series. Begun in his first novel, Chiefs, these tales are of the Lee family and one member, Will, in his rise to the Presidency and his wife as head of the CIA. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 11/23/2011

    " Actually I would award this three-and-a-half stars. And for me it follows in a trend I've been noticing while reading Stuart Woods murder/mysteries (for "light" fare) --- namely, that his earlier books (this one dates to 1983) have more substance to them than more current ones. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 11/19/2011

    " Have read most of Stuart Wood books and this book is the Lee series. Very enjoyable. Learned a lot about sailing and really enjoyed! "

    " I have enjoyed reading this book a second time in two years. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 9/6/2011

    " Good light read. Just as I like them between deeper books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Zimmer | 7/4/2011

    " Excellent 'coming of age' story featuring love/stress and a lot of sailing. One of the early books by Stuart Woods... and definitely one of the best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio Book. Another good Stuart Woods book. I keep going back to him not because I'm excited to read the next book, but because I know it won't be a bad book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 11/11/2010

    " Book was pretty good. Very simple plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 9/19/2010

    " I am a big Stuart Woods fan, but I am not crazy about the Will Lee Series. This book was moderately interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Val | 8/22/2010

    " This novel tells of Will Lee's run for president while an assassin plots his demise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 12/28/2009

    " A great character running for President. Lots of twists, I really liked this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 8/25/2009

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Will Lee; senator runs for President amidst a number of subplots including a dying current President, a VP with Alzheimers, and a militia group out to kill him.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 7/31/2009

    " More in depth story than some of his other novels, which I liked. Raised some good ideas about what would happen if the President and VP were incapacitated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 7/22/2009

    " Senator Lee runs for President. "

    " Will Lee runs for president. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 4/23/2009

    " A poor man's Vince Flynn political thriller. If you like politics, this is a pretty good story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jackie | 4/9/2009

    " Another Wood quick read! Senator Lee enters the political race for president at the last moment and the story drags on. Political issues and oppinions tend to overide the story. This is why I buy books at yard sales... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward | 4/4/2009

    " Still going and enjoying them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 1/17/2009

    " I like the Will Lee series, remindes me a little of Clancy and Jack Ryan, but not as indepth. I liked this one enough to keep it in my personal library. "
