It takes a village to save a child in this pulse-pounding standalone thriller from the acclaimed author of The Man on the Street. 'Fast-paced and gripping' Harriet Tyce 'A propulsive page-turner' Vaseem Khan It wasn't her dad they were after. It was her. Ruby Winter is surprised when her reclusive father invites a stranger into their house. She eavesdrops on their conversation and is alarmed when she hears a fight break out. She dashes into the kitchen to save her dad but the stranger's the one lying on the floor in a pool of blood. Her dad urges her to pack a bag. They must quit their Northumbrian cottage and run. There isn't time to explain why. But as they try to flee her dad is captured. The only people who can help her are the villagers she has shunned her whole life. But, desperate to find her father and to work out who took him and why, she must seek their help. But what if learning the truth means discovering the life she once knew was a lie? ****************************************** Discover what readers are saying about You Can Run 'A fast-paced, edge-of-the-seat ride from start to finish' 5* Reader Review 'This story had me hooked from the start . . .

Fast paced and gripping but with a heart of solid gold. Great stuff -- Harriet Tyce I raced through it. I loved the characters and the dark humour. A cracking, pacy read. -- Patricia Gibney A tour de force. From behind the twitching curtains of a small divided village a force of unlikely ne'er do wells come together in this edgy, electrifying modern thriller. Once again Wood proves himself a brilliant champion of the underdog -- William Shaw At once tense and compelling, Ruby is a character that no one could fail to root for * Daily Mail * Begins at the speed of a runaway train. A propulsive page-turner * Vaseem Khan * Punchy, pacy and packed with powerful scenes. Nailed on to be one of THE books of 2023 -- Robert Scragg A good thriller needs more than just a compelling plot, I want to care about the characters too. Trevor Wood pulls that off superbly in You Can Run with a cast of characters I was sorry to say goodbye to at the end. -- Frances Quinn Trevor Wood has written another cracker of a book. A different cast of characters from his previous trilogy but equally engaging with a theme that focuses on community and what it takes to belong. I loved it -- Nikki Smith Got up early to finish this smashing new book. Go Ruby! What a hero! Books of 2023 will definitely include You Can Run -- Fiona Erskine Superb. Wood delivers the perfect package with brilliantly authentic voices and a wildly exciting plot. But it's a thriller with heart. The perfect balance of pace, compassion and black humour as we rally for his exquisitely executed underdogs. Everything you want from a book -- Emma Christie A menacing isolation action thriller. At once an affecting mediation on family and identity, and also a heart-pounding survival tale that digs into issues of power and class -- Dominic Nolan A masterclass in suspense ... vividly-drawn villagers take on a foe that exudes genuine menace. Wood has distilled the authenticity and wry humour of his Jimmy Mullen trilogy into this compulsive thriller. Be careful picking it up - you won't want to put it down! -- Tom Benjamin An incredibly fun, page-turner locked village thriller (is that a thing? It is now!). It's exciting, has a cast of great characters, humour and is full of personality! * Charlotte Levin * Trevor Wood is a force to be reckoned with in the genre * Mystery People * Wood's punchy prose is perfect for such an enticing set-up, and he's a past master at keeping those cliff-hangers (and revelations) coming * The Crack * Cracking . . . Breathlessly gripping * Peterborough Telegraph * Trevor Wood has fashioned a rip-roaring, action-packed and nail-bitingly tense thriller * Irish Independent Review * Original and unputdownable * Promoting Crime Fiction * A gripping new tale from adopted Geordie Trevor Wood * Living North * Trevor's inimitable voice, humanity and humour really shone through in this locked village mystery * Mari Hannah * A sinister standalone thriller * Sunday Times *
