On the Run, one of many classic novels from crime writer John D. MacDonald, the beloved author of Cape Fear and the Travis McGee series, is now available as an eBook.
Sid Shanley doesn’t stay in one place very long. He has to keep moving, changing towns, jobs, and women at a moment’s notice. He thinks he’s worked out the perfect setup—no attachments, no trails, no explanations. But now a girl has caught up with him. Her name is Paula, and if he accepts her strange proposition, there’s a million-dollar payoff. But first Sid needs answers. Who the hell does this Paula think she is? And why should Sid give up his life, forget his past, and believe her when she promises the impossible?
