You Can Run
By Steve Mosby
'Steve Mosby has become one of a handful of writers who make me excited about crime fiction' Val McDermid
When a car crashes into a garage on an ordinary street, the attending officer is shocked to look inside the damaged building and discover a woman imprisoned within. As the remains of several other victims are found in the attached house, police believe they have finally identified the Red River Killer - a man who has been abducting women for nearly twenty years and taunting the police with notes about his crimes. But now the main suspect, John Blythe, is on the run.
As the manhunt for Blythe intensifies, DI Will Turner finds himself fighting to stay involved in the investigation. The Red River killings hold a personal significance to him and he must be the one to find the killer, although he's determined to keep this from his fellow officers at all costs.
A page turning psychological thriller and a dark police procedural, the new novel from CWA Dagger winner Steve Mosby, explores the blurred lines between truth and fiction.
Steve Mosby lives and works in Leeds. He is the author of THE THIRD PERSON, THE CUTTING CREW, THE 50/50 KILLER, CRY FOR HELP, STILL BLEEDING, BLACK FLOWERS, DARK ROOM and THE NIGHTMARE PLACE. His novels have been translated widely and longlisted for the Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year Award and CWA Dagger in the Library. Find out more at: www.theleftroom.co.uk.

Steve Mosby is one of the finest writers in the UK . . . Mosby takes the serial killer genre and provides something new and exciting . . . This is a book - and author - I will endlessly recommend — Luca Veste
Steve Mosby is one of the most consistently and innovatively creepy writers working right now. With You Can Run he takes the serial killer thriller to a higher level, creating a subtly off-kilter world suffused with low key menace, where moments of intense disquiet and stinging emotion disturb as much as the terrifying evil at its core' — Eva Dolan
