My problem with ON THE RUN is the love story between the hero and the girl was so awful (in terms of dialolgue - very, very trite), I couldn't get through the book and stopped in the middle.

But for other John D. nailbiters, don't forget ONE MONDAY WE KILLED THEM ALL and SOFT TOUCH. Be patient with ONE MONDAY. It's slow but worth it; TOUCH has a great twist at the end. --Brian
