What would you do if someone brutally murdered your only child, served only months in jail because of a technicality, and continually taunted, even threatened, you from behind bars? Could you hide your growing rage from family and friends? Could you gun the killer down as he left prison? Could you change your ID and leave behind your entire life - family, friends, jobs, house - and just disappear? Could Tim and Martha Foster do this?
Forensic evidence and criminal behavior expert Dub Walker, along with best friend and homicide investigator T-Tommy Tortelli and ex-wife and TV reporter Claire McBride, employ all their skills to track down the Fosters.
But Dub quickly learns that the murder of Walter Whitiker is not as simple as it seems and Tim and Martha are not the only ones who want Walt dead. Are they truly as clever as they seem or did someone twist the evidence to keep the hot light of suspicion on the Fosters?
"Murder is never as simple as the motive. There are too many loose ends, and when Dub Walker uses his expert knowledge of forensics and criminal behavior to solve the crime, you'd better be ready to Run To Ground. Doug Lyle takes fear and revenge, adds a bucket of greed, and gives us a wild ride to the finish!"
David Morrell, New York Times best-selling author of The Naked Edge
"A first-rate thriller! Run to Ground delivers the goods: great characters, fine investigative details and the kind of nail-biting action that leaves you rapidly flipping the pages, breathless to discover what will happen next!"
Lisa Gardner, New York Times best-selling author of Catch Me
"Run To Ground boasts an intriguing premise, memorable and engaging characters, and the kind of technical gems that make Doug Lyle's non-fiction forensics books such essential reading. Crisp, page-turning prose, nicely witty banter, and some genuine surprises. Highly recommended."
Zoë Sharp, author of the best-selling Charlie Fox crime thriller series
