Christopher Reich, New York Times best-selling author of Numbered Account, creates this electrifying story of conspiracy, treachery, and political intrigue. Packed with authentic details, The Runner plunges you into the chaos of 1945 postwar Germany, where enemies often appear as allies. American lawyer and former police detective Judge Devlin is in Europe sifting through evidence of Nazi atrocities. He is part of the International Military Tribunal, but his agenda is personal. He hopes to convict SS member and former Olympic sprinter Eric Seyss, the man responsible for his military chaplain brother's death. When Judge learns Eric has just escaped from an American POW camp, the American sets off in a desperate race for vengeance. As Judge follows his prey, he becomes tangled in a dark conspiracy where the hunter becomes the hunted - and the very future of Europe is at stake.

Christopher Reich's masterful storytelling and George Guidall's dramatic timing keep the tension crackling as the plot moves along at breakneck speed.

    " Despite some implausable actions and coincidences, a good post-WW II suspense novel. Even Patton's overall sentiments were used to good effect to make the plot believable. A few spots of repetition and maudlin feelings detracted from the action. Generally a good read that will keep your interest. "

    " Set in post-WWII Germany, this book followed a former NYC detective who is now an attorney working on the war crimes trial. He discovers that the man responsible for his brother's death has escaped from jail and is on the run. The author did a good job developing the characters and delving into the sometimes murky world of post-war reconstruction. "

    " HB large print -- a fast read. Deaver wrote a book which tells the same story and was more gripping because I di not know the ending. It seems that classified material was released. "
