Run into Trouble Paperback – January 27, 2009
|New from||Used from|
--Peter Rosato, Running Times Magazine
The plot is most unusual--a thriller set in a race from the San Diego coast...to San Francisco. Woven in among the action and intrigue are wonderfully described settings of the California coast.
--Marilyn Meredith, American Author's Association
Alan Cook is a wonderful writer and presents his characters in a way that readers can connect with them from page one.
--Carol Hoyer, Reader Views
I really like books by this author. This is another great one. The characters are interesting, and the plot is well laid out.

From the Author
I use both male and female protagonists, and in some cases, a combination. Following is a one-liner about the sex of the protagonist(s) and theme in each of my mysteries:
Dangerous Wind--(Carol Golden)--female--trying to stop world chaos.
Relatively Dead--(Carol Golden)--female--finding relatives who are dying and possibly scamming.
Forget to Remember--(Carol Golden)--female--amnesia mystery. Facing the world as a non-person.
Run into Trouble--couple--the Cold War turns hot on the California coast.
Honeymoon for Three--(Gary Blanchard)--couple--honeymooners with a stalker.
The Hayloft--(Gary Blanchard)--male--murder in high school in the fifties.
Hotline to Murder--couple--murder on a crisis hotline.
Aces and Knaves--male--murder in San Francisco.
Catch a Falling Knife--(Lillian Morgan)--female--sexual harassment and murder in college.
Thirteen Diamonds--(Lillian Morgan)--female--murder in a retirement community.
Series? Carol Golden is the protagonist in Dangerous Wind, Forget to Remember and Relatively Dead. Gary Blanchard is featured as the protagonist in The Hayloft, and ten years later, in Honeymoon for Three. Lillian Morgan, a retired math professor, is the protagonist in Thirteen Diamonds and Catch a Falling Knife.

Giganticorp, a California company providing weapons to the military, is sponsoring the run. Casey Messinger, CEO, has high aspirations for himself as well as Giganticorp. Is there anything that can stop this race?
I really like books by this author. This is another great one. The characters are interesting, and the plot is well laid out. There are plenty of red herrings and twists to keep the reader guessing. The scenery of this book is great as well. I often felt like I was out there running with them.
I highly recommend this book.
I got this book, because the description sounded good, and it certainly is that. I also love mysteries. I would definitely suggest it to everyone.
I gave this book 5 stars.
Yes. for the reasons set forth, I liked the book. In similar situations you are likely to do the same. There are times when Crime and Punishment is better left on the shelf; we all experience them; this is a book for those times.
