Overview
In his stunning, bestselling debut novel Numbered Account--hailed by The New York Times as "smart," "sophisticated," and "wonderful"--Christopher Reich created a breathtaking classic of modern suspense. Now he returns to the electrifying world of international thrillers with an intricately plotted tale of cat and mouse set against the seething backdrop of post-World War II Germany. At once explosive, beautifully textured, and vividly paranoid, The Runner is a no-holds-barred powerhouse of a novel.

July 1945. Devlin Judge, an American lawyer and former New York City police detective, has come to Europe as part of the International Military Tribunal to try Nazi war criminals. But Judge has a very personal agenda--to find the Nazi responsible for his brother's death: a man named Erich Seyss. An elite member of Hitler's SS and former Olympic sprinter known as the White Lion, Seyss has just escaped from an American POW camp. Determined to avenge his brother and bring Seyss to justice, Judge plunges into immediate pursuit. Menaced at every turn by forces determined to keep him from his prey, he enlists the help of Ingrid Bach, the beautiful daughter of one of the most powerful men in Nazi Germany...and Seyss's former fiancée.

To track Seyss through the chaos of a destroyed nation, Judge will put his life on the line to reveal the dark conspiracy surrounding him. For as the hunter becomes the hunted, the chase for the White Lion becomes nothing less than a race to save the future of Europe itself.

Unfailingly gripping, rich in historical detail, and brilliantly atmospheric, The Runner is a true masterpiece of riveting storytelling.
