the runner - reviews

"... a tense and atmospheric thriller with a heart-stopping ending."
Tangled Web

"another good mystery from Peter May...
an enjoyable read with a graphic portrayal of Beijing in winter"
Sunday Telegraph

"the most exciting thriller I've read in a very long time ... absolutely unputdownable ... a fiendishly clever plot ... Great, great story!"
Alanna Knight (The Times '100 Masters of Crime')

"an absorbing and well informed account of Beijing life today and the inside workings of the Chinese police...
Far from a dim sum, this fare turns out quite piquant"
Russell James, Crime Time Magazine

"Peter May has once more found a new angle on this intriguing series"
Mark Campbell, Crime Time Magazine

"enemies come from some unexpected sources in this thriller where surprises are everywhere"
