No matter how fast you run…or how far you go…a killer always finds you… RUNNING SCARED --- the gripping thriller from No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson.
The newborn baby boy is beautiful, perfect, and hers for the asking. All Kate Summers has to do is agree to one condition --- she must disappear from Boston and never breathe a word about the adoption to anyone.
Fifteen years later, Kate has built a good life for herself and her son, Jon, in Hopewell, Oregon. Still, she is haunted by the fear that he will somehow be taken away. Then Daegan O’Rourke arrives in town and strikes up a friendship with her and Jon. But Daegan has his own past to hide --- one with shocking ties to hers.
Someone is watching Kate, watching her son, and is willing to go to any lengths to claim him. And the one man Kate is tempted to trust has dangerous secrets that could change her world forever. Soon the past Kate thought she could outrun will explode, unearthing a legacy of lies and treachery, and a fury powerful enough to kill.
