New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods continues to enthrall readers from coast to coast with his fast-paced, gripping stories and intriguing characters that have left his millions of fans clamoring for more. In his latest novel, this inventive writer brings back one of his most popular characters in a stunning thriller of politics, power, passion, and revenge.

Will Lee, the hero of the acclaimed national bestsellers Run Before the Wind and Grassroots, has finally established himself at the heart of American government as the respected senator from his home state of Georgia. Then a cruel stroke of fate thrusts him onto the national stage, well before he expects to be and long before he is ready for a national campaign.

The road to the White House, however, will be more treacherous than Will and Kate, his intelligent, strikingly beautiful wife and an associate director in the Central Intelligence Agency, can imagine. A decent, courageous, and principled man, Will soon learns he has more than one opponent with whom he must contend. Thrust into the national spotlight as never before, he becomes the target of clandestine forces from the past that will use all their money and influence to stop him--dead--in his tracks. Now Will isn't just running for president...he's running for his life.

Filled with all the suspense and rollercoaster plot twists that have become Stuart Woods's trademork, The Run is this master storyteller at his page-turning best.
