Runner

Patrick Lee. Minotaur, $24.99 (336p) ISBN 978-1-250-03073-3
A chance meeting on a California beach between Sam Dryden, a former Delta Ranger on a midnight jog, and Rachel, a 12-year-old fleeing heavily armed men, jump-starts this razor-sharp thriller from Lee (The Breach). Sam, who spent five years doing off-the-books black ops with an elite team, instinctively tries to save this terrified girl, who can’t remember her background, or why these men are trying to kill her. Their escape takes them across the country while Rachel’s slow recovery of her memory points to a sinister secret government project. Trained to read minds, Rachel possesses skills that make her an uncontrollable deadly weapon. Lee’s precise detailing of technology and medical science recalls the best of Tom Clancy and Robin Cook, while his believable hero adds a Jack Reacher vibe. Still grieving over the death of his wife and child, Sam exudes compassion even in the midst of battle. His growing affection for Rachel adds texture to an adrenalin-fueled plot that begs for a sequel. Announced first printing of 100,000. Agent: Janet Reid, FinePrint Literary Management. (Feb.)
