If I Run by Terri Blackstock was the perfect way to pass a rainy afternoon. I’ve decided that I really need down time during the day to unwind and get away from the computer. Reading is one of the best ways for me to do that. Terri Blackstock is a new author for me but when I read the description of If I Run, I was intrigued. I’ve always enjoyed conspiracy type stories and this suspense story definitely sounded like the type of book that I would enjoy reading. After only a few chapters, I was completely hooked and couldn’t wait to find out what happened at the end.
If I Run by Terri Blackstock
Casey knows the truth. But it won’t set her free. Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices. The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
Casey’s father killed himself years ago and she found his body. She and her family are convinced he didn’t kill himself and that this is all part of a coverup by some dirty cops. A friend of hers (Brent) is a journalist and is investigating his death and he ends up dead and it looks like Casey did it. Convinced she can’t trust the police, she runs. Dylan is one of Brent’s friends and he’s hired to find Casey and bring her back for the police to prosecute. As he starts searching for Casey and uncovering information about Brent’s murder, he starts to wonder if Casey is really the killer. Now, they both need to find out who they can trust and uncover the truth before it’s too late.
This story was truly amazing. The ending to the story wasn’t the way I was hoping it would end. But, the author’s message at the end of the story really touched me. I definitely recommend you read If I Run by Terri Blackstock. Buy it today.
