About this item
Channeling the pathos and drama of Roy Orbison, who has a song with the same title, Lisa Jackson offers a provocative rewriting of an older story with this suspenseful novel, RUNNING SCARED. After a series of tragic events, Kate Summers was given a mysterious opportunity to adopt a child. Although it meant leaving town and never telling anyone, she accepts. Fifteen years later, she is still haunted by the truth catching up with her. Into her and her son's life walks Deagen O'Rourke, and soon Kate's worst nightmares become reality.
Haunted by the fear that her adopted son Jon, who is now 15, will be taken away, Kate Summers finds herself trapped in a living nightmare when someone will go to any lengths--including murder--to claim him, forcing her to trust a mysterious stranger who has secrets of his own. Original.
