Dee loves the freedom and risk of parkour. And when he's set the ultimate parkour challenge he can't resist, but has he got himself in way over his head? Run is an unmissable paranoid thriller - genre fiction meets literary verse novel.

Dee lives for parkour, and the alternate worlds he invents to escape his mundane life. He knows the city better than anyone-the hidden spaces at night, the views that no one else sees, from heights no one else can scale,. With parkour, he's not running away. He's free

But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you. And soon Dee is running for his life, running for real.

Run is an unmissable, paranoid thriller – genre fiction meets literary verse novel.
