Publisher's Summary

It's often said that when tragedy strikes, the victims were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. But not Harry and Alice French.
Assaulted by masked men looking for a mysterious package and a man named Renshaw, Alice and Harry manage to convince them that there has been a terrible mix-up.
But nothing prepares Alice and Harry for the web they find themselves trapped in after their assailants leave. Especially as Alice hasn't been completely honest.
After Harry is approached by a woman named Ruth who seems to know more than she's letting on, Alice and their baby, Evie, disappear. When Harry realises he's become a prime suspect in their disappearance, he seeks refuge with Ruth and demands answers, knowing keeping out of police clutches is the only way he'll track his family down.
But how safe really are Alice and Evie tucked away in Gloucestershire with the mysterious Renshaw?

What a dreadful book. One of the worst so called 'thrillers' I've ever laboured through.

Imagine a bunch of desperate thugs terrorising a young couple and a ruthless chase to catch them on the run as all manner of violent and sadistic things occur. Now add a baby. The most annoying character ever to appear in a book, baby Evie.
In what I can only assume is one of the least successful attempts at a school writing project ever, we are taken on a terrifying and thrilling journey filled with intrigue and danger with the constant irritation of baby Evie who needs a nappy change or a feed. A vicious and violent attack in this awful storyline, rather than grip and bind the listener to the plot will more than likely be interrupted by another crushingly boring observation on how the mind of a little baby might work. It may even startle or worry her. Bloody fights and vicious gangsters are of less of a concern here than formula milk and regular, undisturbed sleep for Evie. I congratulate the author for becoming a first time parent obviously, but keep your lovely baby observations for another book or maybe a Women's Weekly magazine please.
My advice to all my fellow Audibles...... Give this a big miss. It fails on every level.

Good story

Good story but kind of long winded. Took forever to get to why things were happening. Would probably make a better movie.

Nail biting Thriller I Recommend to All

Would you consider the audio edition of See How They Run to be better than the print version?

I really enjoyed the audio version of this book, the narrator did a brilliant job of portraying the characters.

Any additional comments?

It's taken me a couple of days to review this audio book because I needed some time to digest it. I absolutely LOVE this author's style of writing. From the very first page you are dragged into the heart of the action, and you're not given a moment's reprieve to catch your breath. His characters are so real life, you'll find yourself rooting for them from the first terrifying moment when they are subject to a terrifying break in, right up until the heart stopping climax. Include a very young baby in the mix and you are in for a nail biting time. Tom is a great storyteller, and his writing reminded me a lot of Mark Edwards, another brilliant author of whom I'm a big fan. I'm really looking forward to Tom's next offering. This is a fantastic book that I recommend to all.

I don't get it.

Has See How They Run put you off other books in this genre?

No, just off this author and definitely off the narrator. I still cannot really work out why I just spent too many hours waiting for something marginally interesting to happen.

How could the performance have been better?

A different narrator could possibly have made all the difference.

Any additional comments?

Rarely do I buy a book with such good reviews that turns out to be actually so awful that I struggle to finish it. It started off quite well, although the narrator was absolutely awful - the female voices just made me cringe.
