A political thriller set in America, I didn't manage to finish The Run. Like other books by Stuart Woods, there were obvious inconsistencies with the plot. For example, at the beginning of the book the fact that a senior politician is suffering from a neurological disorder is known to exactly five people, none of whom say a word to anyone else, but within hours the whole of Washington is talking about it.
If you're a fan of the American political system, you might find the descriptions of the political manoeuvring interesting. For a Brit, or this Brit at least, the entire process appears tawdry and stuffed full of opportunities for corruption - which is probably the reality of the situation - and it failed to grab or hold my interest. I gave up when I was about a quarter of the way through the book.
