9780099465744: Run For Home

1985: a man runs for his life — wounded, exhausted, hunted remorselessly by a woman assassin know only as The Headhunter.

2001:
sixteen-year-old Kerry Lumsdon runs across the same terrain. She runs to win and runs to forget.

When a headless body is found in the wastelands of the Seahills Estate, Detective Inspector Lorraine Hunt is called in to investigate. But then a more urgent case lands on her desk when Kerry’s sister, Claire, is violently kidnapped.

Headstrong, willful, and wary of police, Kerry sets out on a frantic search for Claire. But her hunt takes her to a violent underworld, a sixteen-year-old murder and, finally, to secrets about her own past her mother hoped she’d never have to face.

And all the time, for Claire, the clock is ticking. . .

From the Inside Flap:

An unputdownable first novel in the bestselling tradition of Martina Cole and Catherine Cookson.

It's 1985. A man is hunted down and killed by a woman assassin known as The Headhunter. Seventeen years later, his body turns up, and detective inspector Lorraine Hunt is called in to investigate.

The day the body is found, Claire Lumsdon is the victim of a violent kidnapping – the third in a series of abductions of young girls. For her sixteen-year-old sister Kerry, it's the beginning of a nightmare. Kerry's got enough on her plate already – her alcoholic mother isn't remotely capable of looking after Kerry and her five siblings, so Kerry and her older brother Robbie must make sure there's food on the table.

Convinced the police can't help, Kerry sets out on a frantic search for her sister. But her hunt leads her to much more than she'd bargained for: Newcastle's gangster underworld, a seventeen-year-old murder; and, finally, the secrets about her past – and her father – that her mother hoped she'd never have to face. And all the time, the clock is ticking for Claire.
