Runaway Man is the first novel in a new series, which features Upper West Side sort of nebbish Benji Golden, who works in his mother's agency and whose specialty is finding people who don't want to be found or are being held against their will. Advance praise: "David Hander is so good at writing one smart, funny page-turner after another that he makes it look easy. His newest not-so hardboiled hero Benji Golden is an authentic 137-pound original. Grab RUNAWAY MAN. I promise it'll grab you right back." -New York Times bestselling author HARLAN COBEN "A new novel by David Handler means a lost weekend. He is a master storyteller who starts with a character you want to know everything about and leads you into taut, un-put-down-able suspense. He had me on page one with the distinct voice of Benji Golden. Trademark Handler humor, warmth, and insight into the darkest human behavior kept me reading till the devastating and bone-chilling end." -New York Times bestselling author LUANNE RICE RUNAWAY MAN is a stellar beginning to what I hope will be a long series. Benji Golden is one tough private eye, although he's short of five-six and so congenitally adorable no one can believe he's actually twenty-five. He's savvy, smart, and droll--an altogether splendid narrator. I found it awkward, biting my nails and laughing at the same time, but author David Handler made me do it. He pulls off simultaneous suspense and wit with great deftness. And wow, that surprise ending! -New York Times bestselling author SUSAN ISAACS

Professional reviews

"A full-bore performance starts off a new series of New York-oriented mysteries by an author with a successful series behind him. Narrator Peter Berkrot gives it his all, making the wonderful characters real: the cops; the apparently na•ve P.I., Benji, who with his mom is carrying on his late father's detective business; and especially the female characters, who are more complex than they seem. Berkrot's controlled tenor voice allows him to transition smoothly from character to character. The plot? A guy with questionable parentage is on the run, and wealthy unsavory patricians are after him. It's tough to put this one down. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
