Award Winning Mystery Thriller for review : Run To Ground, a Dub Walker thriller
2013 BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SILVER AWARD WINNER
2012 USA BEST BOOK AWARD FINALIST
Lake Forest, CA - What would you do if someone brutally murdered your only child, got off on a technicality, serving only months for a minor infraction, and continually taunted and threatened you from behind bars? Could you hide your growing rage from family and friends? Could you wait, and plan, and then gun the killer down as he takes his first breaths of free air? Could you change your ID, leave behind your entire life---family, friends, jobs, home---and disappear?
For Tim and Martha Foster the answer to each of these questions is yes.

Skip tracing---finding those who erase their past and disappear---is as much art as science. Locating someone who effectively creates a new identity and cuts all ties with family and friends requires creativity, attention to detail, an understanding of the criminal mind, and luck.
This is the scenario that faces Dub Walker in Run To Ground, the third thriller in the series.
Dub, a forensic evidence and criminal behavior expert, along with best friend, homicide investigator T-Tommy Tortelli, and ex-wife, TV reporter Claire McBride, must employ all his skills to track down the Fosters, now comfortably secreted in their new life.
But, the killing of Walter Whitiker is not as simple as it seems. Tim and Martha aren’t the only ones who want Walter dead. Could the Fosters be as clever and devious as they seem? Could someone have twisted the evidence to keep the hot light of suspicion on the Fosters? Can Dub expose the killer, or killers, and bring them to justice?
