Publisher's Summary

In the emotional aftermath of her baby's sudden death, Em starts running. Soon she runs from her husband, to the airport, down to the Florida Gulf, and out to the loneliest stretch of Vermillion Key, where her father has offered the use of a conch shack he has kept there for years. Em keeps up her running - barefoot on the beach, sneakers on the road - and sees virtually no one.This is doing her all kinds of good, until one day she makes the mistake of looking into the driveway of a man named Pickering. Pickering also enjoys the privacy of Vermillion Key, but the young women he brings there suffer the consequences. Will Em be next?

Run, Em! Run!

Fast-paced, primal and gratifying! Great to listen to during exercise, or chores, because it makes you hyper!

On the Edge of the IPOD.

This heart pounding thriller which the is also located in the Florida keys (read Duma Key) kept me on the waiting until the end. My wife loved because it is so short.
So short attention span people and ADD people rejoice, this is the book for you!
